Good luck getting Apple AirPods before the holidays

Planning to buy someone you love a pair of expensive Apple AirPods for Christmas? Since the launch of the iPhone 7, Apple's flagships have ditched the 3.5 mm headphone jack in favor of Bluetooth technology. now lists AirPods as "out of stock", Target's website similarly says they are "temporarily out of stock", and B&H Photo Video says they are "back-ordered". The Target at 4175 Vinewood Ln N, Plymouth, MN 55442 for instance stocks the AirPod for pick-up this morning. Store availability has been pushed to January 5 as well. The AirPods are priced at $159.

To drive the point home, Apple is offering "free next-day delivery on in-stock items ordered by 3PM on December 22". Odds are the frustration last minute shoppers are feeling now won't be rewarded with updated AirPods and a wireless charging case-at least not yet.

The Holidays are fast approaching. The online giant offers Holiday gift dealsacross all categories including toys, consumer electronics, books, movies and video games.

Lots of the top 100 Holiday toys are on sale with deep discounts today. Bottom line: they're hard to find anywhere.

AirPods, which cost $159, are also sold out at the websites of United States retailers Best Buy and Target.

Impact of Atlanta airport power outage 'minimal' in Charleston
While travelers inside the terminal were left in limbo, passengers on planes were stuck on the runways, some for several hours. Those waiting in line for Delta flights Monday morninghad to wait for more than hour and some missed their flights.

However, analysts are not surprised they've gone out of stock.

Simply place the AirPods close to your iPhone and with one tap, they are immediately set-up with all the devices signed into your iCloud account, including your iPad and Mac. It appears Apple has been trying to play catch up ever since they were introduced previous year.

We would, however, welcome a set of small buttons on one or both of the AirPods' stems to skip or replay tracks and change the volume while exercising, as Siri voice commands are just not suitable during exercise. That won't be Apple AirPods, nearly certainly. An accelerometer built into each AirPod detects when you're speaking, enabling the microphones to focus on the sound of your voice, filtering out external noise.

However, noise cancelling means battery life is lower than its rivals, at three hours. Need a quick charge?

Priced at $199.99, they are compatible with iOS and Android and give you the option of completely blocking out the world around you, or letting some noise in via a pair of microphones.
