When Apple announced its plans the jack-less iPhone 7 in September, it also launched the set of Airpods; the tiny pieces of earphones that are all but wireless. However, we are now near Christmas, and these Pods are nowhere to be seen. Why?

Apple Airpods Delay is Understandable

Apple formally delayed the ear buds in October when it released an official statement that said they require a little more time before AirPods are read for customers, which is by far the vaguest statement by Apple, ever.

As Business Insider reports,

According to a new report from The Wall Street Journal, though, the issue sounds largely technical. Citing a person familiar with the development of the AirPod, the report suggests Apple is struggling to ensure that both AirPods receive a Bluetooth signal simultaneously, something that would help them avoid sudden connection dropouts.

It still isn’t clear when exactly Apple will release the AirPods to the public. A Barclays analyst said in November that Apple would start AirPods production on a limited basis sometime in December, but Apple hasn’t provided any update since. The company currently lists AirPods as coming soon on its website.

However, it has to be an understatement that Apple is having serious issues in keeping AirPod’s connection consistent because it wouldn’t be a surprise. Most of the wireless buds in the market are absolutely no good at maintaining a good connection.

Another tech website stated in a much more elaborative manner, as we quote:

If Apple is still having trouble in getting those signals to each Earbud at the same time, it suggests that the Bluetooth standard hasn’t gone as smoothly as initially hoped; which is understandable now, no?
