Hi all, sorry if this has been answered before but I did a search and couldn’t find a real answer.

When will the AirPods 2 be available in store for purchase? I’d rather buy in store than online and am willing to go at opening on the 1st day they arrive to maximize my chances of finding one available...

Thanks for your help!!!

Release date is the 26th, but it’ll be first come, first served. Get there early if you want them.

Wishful thinking...... I think apple stores will have a lot of these available in stock and wont sell as fast due to the price point, and the fact that people wont justify to upgrade.

There's no way there's going to be a repeat of the scarcity of the Airpods 1 with these. It will be available in Apple's retail stores "soon".

Perhaps it will take longer for Bestbuy, perhaps not.

I dropped by an Apple Store yesterday and asked when they are getting any. I was told next week. Sounds like they might not have much or any in-store availability the first week.

I just picked some up in NSW, Aus. Heaps of stock for anyone curious in Australia.

Edit: ‘Hey Siri’ seems to be pretty good, even with decent background noise. When I’m using the airpods, the HomePod seems to hand off instantly to the Airpods if I ask Siri a question - so that’s pretty cool.

Lots of stock here in Dubai UAE (Mall of Emirates) .... just walked in and picked them up.

Will probably sell out fast as they are a very popular here.

I work at Best Buy and we’ve been sold out of AirPods 1 for months. Every shipment we get is gone within minutes of opening. I’m expecting the same for AirPods 2.

Called my local store and they say they have them. I double and triple confirmed... driving there in ~15 min.
Good to hear.. How do you get thru at an local apple store and actually speak to a sales rep at the store? I always get routed to someone in the 800 customer service area.
