Apple Officially Delays Beats X Release until 2017

Apple is delaying the release of its Beat X wireless earbuds until February, a full five months after the company first announced them. Apple confirmed the timeline on its website listing for the $149.95 earbuds, but even with this update we still don’t have a specific release date. At least we know the Beats X will eventually be released?

We figured this delay was coming after retailer B&H Photo sent an email to customers that stated the earbuds wouldn’t be available for two to three months. The earbuds, which were first announced at September’s iPhone event, were slated to be shipped in “Fall 2016.” But according to an email from B&H Photo obtained by 9to5Mac, the shipments are now estimated to take “at least 2-3 months”—pushing the product’s shipment date to sometime in February or March.


Dec 13, 2016, Apple confirmed that its other wireless earbuds — the AirPods — are now available to order. They should start showing up in Apple Stores and in customers’ mailboxes as early as next week. Maybe, finally, you can stop living the dongle life.
