Apple CEO Tim Cook has spoken about the stock shortages of Apple AirPods in Thailand and elsewhere.

The Siri powered wireless earphones have been in short supply since they were launched in December 2016.

For the past nine months the Thai version of Apple’s online store says users will have to wait six weeks for delivery.

During Apple’s quarterly earnings report earlier this week, Tim Cook addressed the supply constraints that have resulted in delays of the AirPods for Apple users in Thailand.

He said that Apple has increased production and that he expects AirPods to become more widely available.

“We have increased production capacity for AirPods and are working very hard to get them to customers as quickly as we can, but we are still not able to meet the strong level of demand,” Mr Cook said.

The AirPods are able to connect with your iPhone or iPad but can also intelligently connect with your MacBook or Apple Watch as you switch between devices.

The AirPods are powered by Siri who can be summoned by a simple double tap on the side of the earphone.

You can then use Siri to control music, volume or make a call.

A special accelerometer built into each AirPod detects when you are speaking and filters out background noise.

The AirPods have a battery life of around hours and ship with its own charging case.

While addressing the supply problems with the AirPods, Mr Cook also revealed that Apple has now sold 1.2 billion iPhones since it launched the handset a decade ago.
