Will Apple AirPods Max ordered in Germany now, must be on eternally long delivery times to adjust. All the more annoying the idea when after the joy of the dispatch notification the disillusionment immediately follows: Aborted dispatch, back to the sender.

Packages containing Apple AirPods Max were not properly labeled. For safety reasons and to protect our employees, all packages that contain potentially dangerous substances must meet certain guidelines. We will investigate and ensure correct labeling.
The potentially dangerous substances include lithium-ion batteries that are built into the AirPods Max. Apple may have forgotten to put this notice on the packages.
