Apple AirPods delayed as company struggles with Bluetooth issues

Posted on Monday, December 12 2016 @ 15:21:44 CET by


One of the biggest stunners about the Apple iPhone 7 was the company's decision to drop the 3.5mm headphone jack. This move infuriated a lot of people and it seems karma hit Apple back as the company delayed its AirPod wireless earphones once more.

Originally slated to launch in October, the wireless earphones still need "a little more time" because Apple is struggling to make them work. MacRumors reports about two different rumors that are making the rounds. The first one comes from Wall Street Journal, which claims Apple is having problems with ensuring both Bluetooth-connected earpieces receive audio at the same time to avoid distortion.

Apple blogger John Gruber on the other hand believes it's unlikely that Apple ran into a technical problem after the announcement of the product. He heard rumors that a manufacturing issue is the culprit, and that the AirPods are more difficult to produce at scale than expected.

On a related note, it seems Samsung is following this nonsense as the rumor mill suggests the Galaxy S8 will be removing the headphone jack too. The article blasts Apple and Samsung for the move, claiming they're taking away something simple and universal and replacing it with something complex and proprietary. The author backs up his conclusion by listing the numerous Bluetooth problems he encountered with his iPhone 7 in the past six weeks.
