Customers who ordered third-generation AirPods are beginning to see their orders ship out ahead of the accessory's official launch on Oct. 26.

Users took to Twitter to share the shipping updates and estimated delivery dates. In addition to the third-gen AirPods, it also appears that orders of Apple's special $19 polishing cloth are also shipping out to customers.

Customers who haven't ordered the new AirPods yet may still be able to nab a pair. Third-generation AirPods are still available to order with estimated delivery dates in early November as of the writing of this article. Brick-and-mortar retail locations will also have the AirPods in stock starting on Tuesday.

Apple's third-generation AirPods feature a new AirPods Pro-like design, as well as improved audio quality, support for spatial audio, and a new MagSafe-compatible charging case.

Earlier on Monday, early reviews of Apple's third-gen AirPods were largely positive, with many outlets praising the improved audio quality and more comfortable fit.

In addition to the new AirPods and polishing cloth, orders of updated 14-inch MacBook Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro models are also expected to arrive starting on Tuesday.
