Apple CEO Tim Cook: AirPods are a “Runaway Success” [VIDEO]

Share:

Apple CEO Tim Cook visited the New York Stock Exchange as part of his vacation on Wednesday with his nephew. While on the floor of the NYSE, reporters quickly surrounded the Apple executive, asking him about business and AirPods.

Cook declined to talk about Apple’s business, but did say it has been a “great holiday”, speaking to CNBC. He said AirPods, the company’s latest wireless headphones, are “a runaway success” and that Apple is “making them as fast as we can.”

AirPods are pretty much sold out and are expected to ship in six weeks time for online sales. When a reporter asked Cook if he could speed up production, the CEO replied “I’m trying the best I can.”

The CEO said “I’m just here with my nephew, enjoying a couple of days in New York,” adding “I love it. I love it. I wanted him to see what you guys do for a living,” when asked about the NYSE. Apple is listed on the Nasdaq.

Check out the short clip from CNBC below:

What’s the best way to track stock for AirPods? Originally we suggested iStockNow, but a better alert system has been developed by AirPods Stock Alerts, which can send you real-time email updates.

Earlier today, we told you AirPods were in stock a the Apple Store Eaton Centre in Toronto, and as of writing, that still appears to be the case for the $219 CAD wireless headphones. The Eaton Centre store is just one of three locations right now in Canada and the USA that has AirPods in stock, according to AirPods Stock Alerts.

    “Ahh, phew… I am so pleased that all our crews here at Apple were able to come together and pull this off just before Christmas.If we had completed them on time they would have made terrible Halloween gifts. If we put them off until 2017 they would have made horrible Easter gifts.
    Thank you everyone, great work!”
    (we secretly have version 2 with wireless charging coming out end of June just in time for customers to lose them on summer vacations)
    Hope the little batteries don’t explode on air travel.????????????

    I’m sorry but I just have to say this. I can’t stand it. Men, please do not wear AirPods at least in public. The AirPods make you look like you’re wearing earrings. Canadian men are already feminized enough. Now to see Canadian feminized men wearing AirPods, I can’t stand it. Ug. Please stop. I’m waiting for the day when the feminist/feminized prime minister justin steps out in public wearing a pair of AirPods. Oh God. Just stop, please, we (women everywhere) beg you.

  • Lol thanks Christine

    I already wear earrings so, you wouldn’t notice them. Beside once you get married, the way you look hardly matters anymore LOL

  • Chrome262

    not any more draining then my Earin’s, love them, I will loose 10% on the 30 min subway commute to work.

  • Chrome262

    They should of made them in different colors, I think black would been nice, but when i have that blue man purse, i need something to go with it.

  • Chrome262

    So if i buy them at the eaton centre i should be able to cancel my online order?

  • Cornfed710

    Of course, no problem 🙂

  • KIII

    Have you tried a 100% charge before bed and then checked the level in the morning? Had a 82% case this AM here.

  • iFone

    Men, don’t listen to your women. Just carry on.

  • Brad Fortin

    lol

    The Apple Watch is generating several billion dollars in revenue every quarter. That’s very much a success by any measure.

  • Chrome262

    and this is because the case and headphones where close by?

  • Chrome262

    done, using them now at work

  • KIII

    Pods left in a closed case with no active device connection. Full 100% charge on both left, right and the case before bed.

    This comment is very offensive and I’m not sure why it hasn’t been deleted yet. Canadian men are feminized? This person obviously lives on the internet and not in reality. I support our country, our Prime Minister, and I also support Canadian men and women’s right to be whatever they want.

    Our Prime Minister (who is a married man with 3 kids) is being called feminized? I’m extremely offended that this comment wasn’t deleted immediately and that one of the moderators thinks this was funny. Shame on you Gary. I guess you support the conservatives and think it’s okay to take weird internet bs about feminization (which has no basis in reality) and enable crazy people to talk about that on your website. Bravo.

    And lastly, how dare you imply that feminization is a bad thing?

  • Cornfed710

    That’s great news 🙂

  • Cornfed710

    I personally think ?’s W1 headphones will be a huge success.

  • iverge

    Keep drinking the Apple flavoured kool-aid.

  • Brad Fortin

    lol

  • Chrome262

    because of your post, I actually shut down bluetooth when not using them. I haven’t seen any major drain, except when i am using them. This weekend i will try seeing of they are close by how bad it is for me.
