Right after the release of AirPods were in deficit. An hour later, after opening the pre-order headphones delivery times have increased dramatically. At the moment in most departments of the online Apple store users are unable to purchase a headset, as before, in two weeks. In the Russian online store AirPods delivery time is 6 weeks.
Before the start of sales of the AirPods experts doubt that Apple will be able to cope with the demand and to improve delivery. The deficit of headphones will occur in January and February, as the device is also sold in the retail network of the company.
