Apple AirPods

Why did Apple delay the Airpods? Leo said that there's a limited supply to go out before Christmas and the rest will get their's next month. The main issue is that manufacturing them at scale has proven to be more of a challenge. They are technically complex. The same happened to the Apple Pencil -- they sold out quickly and people had to wait because supplies were limited. With any luck, Apple could send them sooner, rather than later.
