Apple AirPod headphones are now available for sale after a delay of about two months. According to Apple, the $159 wireless headphones are now available through its website, whose launch was earlier delayed by Apple for unexplained reasons.
AirPod was unveiled in September at the time of launch the latest iPhone.
According to Apple, delivery of AirPods would commence next week, and the AirPod would be available for purchase at Apple Stores, Apple-authorized resellers and select carriers.
The delay in the launch of the device was seen as a rare marketing slip-up by Apple that said it needs more time to make the device ready for sale in the market.
