AirPods are a “runaway success” Tim Cook sais

Apple CEO Tim Cook has come out in support of his company’s most recent foray into audio innovation, saying the wireless AirPods that recently went on sale are a “runaway success” with customers.

Either the AirPods really are in high demand or Apple just isn’t making many of them – if you order the wireless earphones today you can expect to see them turn up at your door sometime around February, which is quite a lead time.

Cook also told CNBC on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange that Apple is “making them just as fast as we can” to keep up with demand, whatever that level of demand happens to be.

Cook was apparently touring the NYSE with his nephew while on a Christmas vacation from Apple duties.
