Document: Original AirPods ‘out of stock’ in four weeks

Screenshot leaked to Spanish-language blog suggests new AirPods could hit the shelves March 29.

From Applesfera: The AirPods 2 have a date: next March 29 they will arrive at the Apple Store (Translated from Spanish):

For days we have been receiving tracks from several different sources that converge on the same data: we could have an Apple keynote on March 25, with the launch of the news that will be presented (or part of them) on March 29. Today we are the ones who can corroborate releases for March 29 with our own sources.

One of them, who prefers to remain anonymous and who is aware of the internal operations of suppliers in the Asia-Pacific market, has informed us that March 28 is the last day of the “life cycle” of the original AirPods .

The screenshot that you can see right up here is part of the logistics and product stock management software that this source has sent us, indicating that the original AirPods are no longer on sale on March 28. A few new models, which would be arriving at the store stores, will be placed on the shelves on the 29th.

MacRumors says Fall launch. This looks like hard evidence for Spring, but could be faked.

My take: With my luck, the replacement AirPods I bought in December will be outdated by March.

    Well, if Feb. was a slow month for Apple News, March may be hot.

    Ming-Chi Kuo seems to have nailed it. At least I hope so. These numbers are exciting. Per Kuo:

    Sales will go crazy

    Kuo is predicting very strong growth. He says that Apple sold between 14 and 16 million in 2017, and will have sold almost twice that by the end of this year (26-28 million in 2018). But things double again next year (2019), he says, selling 50-55 million units, then 70-80 million sales in 2020 and more than 100 million, perhaps as many as 110 million, in 2021.

    These increases are helped along by what he calls the upgraded model out in 2019, the design improvement the following year and two other factors. These are what he calls an innovative user experience and high integration with Mac and iOS products.
