Apple has delayed shipping its new AirPods headphones, announced in conjunction with the headphone-jackless iPhone 7 in early September. The cordless Bluetooth headphones, which cost $159, were scheduled to ship this October.

Even at launch, the AirPods and the iPhone 7 did not have the same shipping date. The iPhone 7 has been released, and customers have been given a special adapter for plugging in their standard headphone cords.

An Apple spokesperson told BuzzFeed News, "The early response to AirPods has been incredible. We don't believe in shipping a product before it's ready, and we need a little more time before AirPods are ready for our customers."

The spokesperson declined to give a rough shipping date and declined to comment on any issues that may have delayed the shipment.

This is unusual for Apple, which typically hits its promised product release dates.

A BuzzFeed News investigation, in partnership with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, based on thousands of documents the government didn't want you to see.
