    I'm reaaaaally hoping the trend continues and we get the newer models earlier this year. It seems to me like every year the release date gets shorter and shorter; perhaps it'll be made available around the last week of October this year? :cautious:
    IMO it's either October—if they do decide to host an event this year—or the other likely candidate Q1 2017. I'm very excited to hear what they have in store for us; the upgrades for their Mac lineup is long overdue... and the same can be said for my MacBook Air that has kept me company since 2011.
    I still can't believe a humorous tweet from Federico Viticci made it into serious headlines lol

    One potentially bad thing about the Airpods is most likely it will only be iDevice specific, or worse, only iPhone 7 and above specific. Ming-Chi Kuo mentioned something about the AirPod's "bluetooth-like connection" or "non-standard bluetooth connection", which indicates it might not pair with other devices with standard bluetooth (like other phones, media devices, etc.). Well, they said it would be an upmarket replacement of the EarPods. A rather restrictive upmarket if that's truly the case.

    I honestly don't care about these airpods. Wireless headsets / earpiece are still far inferior to wired headsets in terms of sound quality. I just hope they include a lightning to 3.8mm headjack adaptor so that I can still use my wired earpiece. It would also help if they make an adaptor with splitter. This way you can simultaneously charge your phone while listening to your music.

    I hope that adapter is rigid. You are essentially changing what you are plugging into your iPhone from a metal rod (3.5 inch plug) to a thin rectangular piece of plastic and metal (lightning plug). If something's gotta give, I have a guess where it will break. #lightninggate You read it here first. :lol:
