  • Some lucky people are starting to receive their AirPods Max orders.

Today is AirPods Max (opens in new tab) launch day and while stocks are more limited than a really limited thing, those who were able to order quickly are receiving their headphones today. And thanks to the magic of timezones, some are already bopping away to their favorite playlists right now.

Music lovers around the world have taken to social media to share photos of their new headphones while others have ventured into their local Apple Stores to take a look at the new hotness.
