    1. My earlier comment on the AirPods was that Apple probably knew all along they would be “delayed”. They needed to show something at the iPhone 7 event to temper the outrage of removing the audio jack. It would have been really stupid to show it though and then say it’ll be available in 2-3 months. “End of October” was still reasonable. Until they scratched that with barely a whisper at the 11th hour.
