I was at the Apple store yesterday returning one of the two phones that were delivered (error on order day resulted in two orders). They had a huge stack of AirPods Pro on the counter they were selling. They all had $249 prices on them and I was confused so I checked and the package had a 2021 date on them. I really disliked that they were trying to sell them at full price to customers unaware in the store.
Apple rarely ever discounts their products in their own store.... As a consumer people should do a tiny bit of research before buying something... 30 seconds typing in "airpods pro" in a search engine will not only yield a ton of articles letting you know the new ones are coming 9/23.... But also a list of places to buy the current gen at a cheaper price. If people blindly pay for something without doing the least bit of research then that's on them.
