    IMG_0983.PNG Once again I'm trying to purchase some newly released Apple products (Beats X, this time) and as usual, America seems to have plenty of stock whereas Asia has literally nothing. It's a typical occurrence and TBH it's really frustrating. Why does Apple not seem to care about non-US markets?

    Seriously you can say that? For all the country in Asia, Japan is the most loved by Apple and we all know that.

    I heard that most Japanese have iPhone. So do my country people. Apple is something of a luxury in my country but many are dying for it.

    You shouldn't be complaining about Apple "hating Asia so much." Within the last 30 days, the only Asian country to have AirPods in stock has been Japan. In fact, Tokyo, the city you seemingly hail from, has had AirPods in stock in three stores within the last few weeks. One store actually had them as little as 6 days ago.

    Go live in China, Brazil, Australia, The UAE, or the other countries which have actually had literally zero AirPods in stock within the last month if you want to complain about Apple "hating" your country. I may not live in Asia, but I sure as hell know that Japan isn't the only country on the continent.

    Actually, if you check the time stamps that the AirPods were supposedly in stock and then out again, you'll see that they all happened after-hours. IOW, the AirPods were never actually in stock at any Japanese stores (and the online shop delivery time is currently six weeks, which I know because I also have an order pending for AirPods). ;)

    I guess I just find it annoying that the Beats X are widely available in the States (both online and in-store) yet my launch-day order in Japan has yet to ship. The same thing happened last year with the iPad Pro 9.7 as well as the ... something else which I've forgotten ATM. It just seems to be a regular occurrence, is all. For some reason they never seem to allocate any stock for Japan, meanwhile the States are swimming in un-purchased product. As an Apple fan who lives in Tokyo, I find it irritating. I'm sure that's not difficult to understand.
