But if you’re lucky, you might be able to get yourself a new pair of headphones if you buy from a local Apple Store.
Apple Stores across the United Kingdom and others in Europe are now showing stock available for in-store pickup, sometimes even on the same day. However, stock does appear to be tight and not all colors are available at all stores, unfortunately.
The best way to get a pair of AirPods Max right now seems to be to order via the iPhone App Store app and then select the option to collect your new headphones from a local store. You can even get your hands on the Lightning to 3.5mm audio cable that’s proving difficult to pick up online, too.
The AirPods Max have been a huge hit despite their large $549 asking price and initial doubts over the design. But with early reviews proving positive and people being suckers for new Apple tech, these things are already shaping up to be a sleeper hit this holiday season.
have you been able to get your hands on a new pair of AirPods Max and if so, which color?
