In the in-store availability thread people are reporting Australia and Dubai has some in stock today so the UK might have some

I walked into Manchester Arndale at Lunch today and picked some up (normal case), they had plenty of them

I'm assuming they are the new ones though as they don't say "2nd generation" on the box, the model numbers are A2032/1

Mine have just gone to preparing to ship. Couldn’t get into the store until Thursday so I’ll have to wait and see how long it takes for these to come. Are they coming from the Uk or China?

Anyone know if you can reschedule DHL Deliveries. Mine are being delivered tomorrow but I will be at work so I need to change the day.

I walked into a store in London, Stratford and there were some in the front to sell if you walked up to purchase.

Ordered a pair with the wireless charging case for collection from the Birmingham store this morning. Received notification about an hour ago that they're ready for pick-up.

Hoping they fit my ears, as my outgoing Sony wireless earbuds now barely hold a charge.

It appears the wireless charging ones are in much shorter supply, even now. I'm assuming will continue for a couple of weeks. Anyone pick those up recently?

My local store had hundreds of boxes on display but when I tried to purchase they said no stock. I complained and the guy arranged to have the boxes removed from display as was misleading.

I subsequently ordered from Amazon on Sunday and arrived Monday. Genuine v2 with a manufacture date of Week 10 (March) 2019. Non-wireless case.

I think they were on sale for a few days at most Apple stores after launch but they seem to have gone out of stock even the non wireless case. My pre-order was meant to be delivered between 1-3 April but it shipped on 26th of March and I got it on the 28th. Would have got it on the 27th but I had to reschedule for the 28th.

I tried to buy some yesterday at the Regent Street store and I was told the AirPods are out of stock in the UK. this morning, two stores (regent street and covent garden) had them for in store pick up. I chose that (still need to pick them up) but i note now you can't get them. Going on istocknow helps. It seems pretty accurate about availability. To me it appears that the wireless case is selling out more.
