We all know Apple want to push wireless as the new way to enjoy audio, and I'm a big fan of it too.
But according to MacRumors, their upcoming AirPods may even be delayed until January 2017:
Following the confirmation that Apple has delayed its wireless "AirPods" beyond the original late October launch window, foreign supply chain sources are now pointing towards a launch date in January 2017, and not the late 2016 estimation that many believed would help the Bluetooth device sell during the holidays. - MacRumors
This is pretty rubbish news. In the ideal situation, I'm sure Apple would of loved to of released the AirPods along with the iPhone 7.
