Apple’s AirPod Max wireless headphones quickly sold out after launch, with new deliveries pushed back 10-12 weeks, well into March.
However, Apple’s timeline for AirPods Max deliveries in Canada has improved, in yet another case of the company underpromising and overdelivering.
According to iPhone in Canada reader Jean-Marc, his AirPods Max order from December 9, was originally destined for March delivery. However, 10 days later, Apple told him it would be delivered by February 16-22.
But on Friday morning, another Apple status update was sent out to note his order had shipped—a full five weeks before the estimated delivery date, which Jean-Marc says is a nice “surprise” from the iPhone maker.
Currently, AirPods Max are showing delivery dates of 7-8 weeks right now on Apple.ca. AirPods Max were also available on Amazon.ca a while back, and on sale, but they are no longer listed on the site.
