If you pre-ordered the 2nd generation AirPods right after Apple announced it on Wednesday, you might want to check our order status. Apple has started shipping the first batch of AirPods 2 orders out to customers. The orders, however, will only be delivered by Tuesday to most customers.
Despite the AirPods 2 not offering any significant upgrade over the original AirPods, there seems to be a high demand for them. Soon after they went up for pre-order, the AirPod 2 shipping estimate slipped to the first week of April.
If you could not get your AirPods 2 pre-order in and still want to get your hands on one as soon as possible, you should consider heading to your nearest Apple Store on Monday or Tuesday to inquire about in-store AirPods 2 stock availability.
AirPods 2 retain the same design as the original AirPods but they come with other improvements. This includes a new H1 chip that is more efficient and offers lower latency. Apple says AirPods 2 is notably faster in switching between devices, offers up to 1.5x times lower latency while on calls and gaming, and more. It also offers up to 50% more talk time at 8 hours. The chip also enables always-on ‘Hey Siri’ detection. While Apple is offering the AirPods 2 with a Qi wireless charging case, it is charging extra for it. The bundle with the Qi wireless charging case costs $199 while the one without it costs $159.
