AirPods Availability Still Constrained – Apple Forced to Heavily Increased Production Capacity to Meet Demand
Just like the iPhone, Apple’s AirPods have become a very popular product among users but that is where the problem is heading. The increasing demand has resulted in the non-availability of these wireless earphones, forcing the company to take drastic measures.
Research Firm Claims That AirPods Have a Satisfaction Rating of 98 Percent - Apple Will Be Working Hard to Increase Production to Curb Supply and Demand Disparity
During Apple’s third quarter earnings call, the company’s CEO Tim Cook was aware of the availability issues surrounding AirPods, but quickly stated that production capacity is going to be increased in order to give consumers what they want.
“We have increased production capacity for AirPods and are working very hard to get them to customers as quickly as we can, but we are still not able to meet the strong level of demand.”
AirPods are an extremely flexible way of connecting to your iPhone by means of what Apple likes to call the W1 chip. With this chip, the process of pairing by sifting through the settings is not going to be necessary and you will seamlessly be able to connect to your mobile device, if you have the available cash for it and if the product is available to purchase.
The only other wireless Bluetooth-enabled earphones to feature the W1 chip is the BeatsX so if you cannot muster up sufficient patience to wait for the AirPods to become available in your area, we strongly recommend that you make a purchase of these. They currently carry a price of $99, making it slightly more affordable compared to what it was being sold for earlier, which was a price of $149.95.
Apple is also said to be working on second-generation AirPods, which is said to greatly improve the aesthetics, functionality and battery life of the successor.
