    Why is no one talking about the lack of supply with airpods? Apple pencils were at least on shelves even if it wasn't a large quantity.

    I've been patient for a month and a half, order is still "processing items" on the apple store.

    I try not to think about it. It's just another "toy" for me. It's not hurting my workflow being without them. I knew the wait when I ordered them and I knew there would be a wait when they were announced. I try not to let these things get me all worked up because it's pointless. When they arrive I'll be excited for them but until then...I don't really think about it much.

    It's been talked about, I think most are just being patient, which is hard!

    Yeah not many recent stories on the lack of supply. I ordered mine on January 4, 2017, and it's still processing for a Feb 23, 2017 delivery. I was sure they would ramp up production. Either they are still having problems or demand is through the roof.

    I bought mine about a month ago and I picked it up 4 hours after I bought them.

    Check istocknow.com and if a store near you has them, but it online from Apple. That's what I did. Randomly check and a Boston store got them in and I ordered and picked it up. The same day. I only waited 4 hours because I was at work.

    Definitely use istocknow.com if you don't want to wait for them. As long as you're quick enough to order once the email comes in that they're in stock, you'll only have to wait about a week. I set up a reminder a week and a half ago, got notified Friday that my local store got some in stock, ordered 2 pair and picked them up that day. They were sold out within 15 mins of getting the reminder, so you do need to be quick.

    Are AirPods still taking 6 weeks to be received. I was in the Apple Store in Las Vegas and the rep told me that the website says 6 weeks but most orders are being shipped a lot quicker than that. Has any experienced this recently?

    If you ship from Apple.

    Used IsInStock for my boss earlier and got an email within 2 hours that AT&T had them in. They'll be here in 3-5 days.

    Just a note that IsInStock didn't work for me with AT&T. They kept notifying me that Verizon had them in stock, but they weren't there. However, I found them on AT&T's site on Tuesday night and they are out for delivery now. I just checked and it looks like they are still in stock at AT&T.

    If they were even in store on 1 May, they're gone now. Where on the site do you find projected in store ETAs?

    I gave up trolling the stores near me and ordered from Apple today. The site says 6 weeks/June 26. I'm hoping it'll be sooner but I doubt it will be by much.

    I'd have ordered from ATT but they don't deliver to POBs. I have an order in with someone else, and if that comes in (which I doubt) the Apple Store order will be cancelled.

    I'm still curious as to why, after all this time there's such a lengthy delay.

    1) Unable to keep up with unexpected demand?

    2) Low yield?

    3) Manufacturing resources pulled to work on new Mac Pro? (A joke, son, a joke.)

    Not sure what the issue is. I mean I've seen one pair outside of an Apple Store, that's it.
