Launched this time last year, the AirPods were a controversial topic for some, users to be complained that they may lose one of the buds, the battery may not be good etc. But despite all this, the AirPods have been a very popular product for Apple, it became a product with the highest satisfaction rating that the company had ever seen.

But for Christmas 2017, if you were planning on treating friends and family this year to a pair of AirPods, you’re out of luck as the wireless earbuds are now on backorder until early January.
