During the presentation of the Q4 2020 quarterly figures, Tim Cook released more information about the availability of the AirPods Max. The headphones have been difficult to obtain for several months and it is expected that availability will remain limited for a while in the coming months.
Tim Cook expects that the AirPods Max will only be easily accessible from the second quarter of 2021.
Shortage of AirPods Max
It is now clear that Apple has a serious shortage of AirPods Max copies. Since the launch in December, the headphones have been difficult to obtain. Delivery for order in December is now February 2021.
Tim Cook says that the problems will not be solved for the time being. Apple expects to experience problems with the AirPods Max production until the second quarter of this year.
The question is whether there are no problems with production. Since its release, there have been quite a few problems with production. However, Apple says it is due to the great success of the AirPods Max. The headphones are aimed at the higher segment with a suggested retail price of 629 euros.
