AirPods have gone on sale in various parts of the world with Aussie customers among the first to ge their hands on them – as long as you got your order in quickly. Early buyers can expect their AirPods to be delivered by a large, jolly fellow in a red suit. But if you missed the first lot, you’ll be waiting until the off- time between Christmas and New Year or later.
The local price is AU$229 inc GST. US customers are paying US$159 which is about AU$212 but when you add the GST to that, the price jumps to $233 so there’s no extra ‘Apple Tax’ being foisted on local buyers.
