Apple’s long-awaited wireless earphones AirPods are coming to the company’s retail stores Monday, Dec. 19.

This is according to a report from MacRumors, which cites a retail source and asserts carrier stores and Apple Authorized Resellers will be get the AirPods as well.

Originally slated for an October launch, the AirPods were delayed for unspecified reasons. Earlier this week, Apple eventually put them on sale on its online store, with a Dec. 22 shipping date. If the MacRumors report is true, it entails folks who visit a physical Apple retail store might get them three days before that date.

The AirPods are tiny earbuds which seem a lot like the regular iPhone earbuds, merely without a wire. They feature Apple’s new W1 chip, which constructs pairing with other devices faster, and a special case that doubles as a portable battery/ charger. Check out its consideration of the item here.
