Last-Minute Holiday gift buyers will have a hard time to find the $159 Apple AirPods in stock before the Holidays. Update: Amazon has $159 Apple AirPods in stock right now, according to the Tracker app. The Apple AirPods ship when available in 1 to 2 days from Amazon.
The last time the AirPods have been in stock online was on December 15 at Walmart, according to online inventory tracking app The Tracker. Best Buy had the AirPods in stock online on December 13 the last time.
The Apple store is no option as the AirPods ship in January. All hope is not lost if you can react fast to an online inventory of the Apple AirPods. We found several Target stores that stock the $159 AirPods right now with online purchase and store pickup. The Target at 4175 Vinewood Ln N, Plymouth, MN 55442 for instance stocks the AirPod for pick-up this morning.
To get notified on your smartphone about the AirPod availability in online stores, download the free The Tracker app. Tap on the "Notify Me" checkbox on the Apple AirPods listing and you are all set. Note, that Best Buy is showing the AirPod in stock, but the delivery date is in January, like at the Apple Store. You can find the AirPod on the home screen on of the Tracker app.
To get some of the AirPods technology features and water resistance the AirPods does not offer, get the $129.99 Beats Powerbeats3 wireless headphones. The other costly option is to pay double on eBay for the AirPods. Watch out for fake AirPods offers from China.

About Apple AirPods
Whenever you pull your AirPods out of the charging case, they instantly turn on and connect to your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac. Audio automatically plays as soon as you put them in your ears and pauses when you take them out. To adjust the volume, change the song, make a call, or even get directions, just double-tap to activate Siri.
Driven by the custom Apple W1 chip, AirPods use optical sensors and a motion accelerometer to detect when they’re in your ears. Whether you’re using both AirPods or just one, the W1 chip automatically routes the audio and engages the microphone. And when you’re on a call or talking to Siri, an additional accelerometer works with beamforming microphones to filter out background noise and focus on the sound of your voice. Because the ultralow-power W1 chip manages battery life so well, AirPods deliver an industry-leading 5 hours of listening time on one charge. And they’re made to keep up with you, thanks to a charging case that holds multiple additional charges for more than 24 hours of listening time. Need a quick charge? Just 15 minutes in the case gives you 3 hours of listening time.
