"All 100 units are built and working 100%. They are also all spoken for except for 4, so if you got your order in on the 2.0 already congrats you are all set Smile




I am here to give you the latest full disclosure report. We are making progress every day. It's great to see our team come together and really pour it on. As good as the highs are, we did have a small setback with our 2nd and what we hoped to be our last lab test with Apple Inc this week.

Our 1st test in March showed 9 major errors. We've fixed all of them over a period of about a month and sent the unit back for a second round of testing. To all of my team's surprise, Apple found 2 new errors?! These were super small errors and have zero effect on the performance of our unit. In fact, we fixed them in less than 24 hours. Even though we fixed these fast, we have to go through testing for the 3rd time. They have to check that we've done the corrections properly. That means we have to go to the back of the testing line... again Smile


Every time we send in for testing it's usually about a 2-3 week wait plus the large $$$ test fees we pay Apple. As you can see 3 tests can cost an amazing amount of time in our shipping timeline, it's been the main offender in our delays.

We are closer than ever and your unit is just waiting, already built in CA. Just gotta get Apple to clear these last 2 small issues with us, it's going to happen. I will not let up until these 2.0 Apes are where they belong... in our customer's hands.

Thanks for your support through these final touches."""

I have the first version, been using it in all my shows, works perfect every time. The remote is good and accurate even at a far distance. I didn't take the upgrade as I am already satisfied enough for my purpose.

I still haven't got mine either. I bought it for the summer months now they are almost over. Its been a very long time and I paid up front. Is he going to give us a big discount for the long wait?

Yes, when I ordered I did not realize they were not ready to ship, but I received an email relating shipping in July. Still nothing yet and besides the above post I have not received any info.

I would like it for my run of shows in October.

The July 20th update says it was being sent to Apple for round 3 of testing. That takes 2-3 weeks and a bunch of money.

If Cleared they will ship. Cross your fingers.

If Apple finds another issue then its Round 4, another 2-3 weeks of testing and a bunch of money.

Audio Ape is under the mercy of Apple and Apple could care less about a bunch of magicians.

I didn't know all this was happening. I thought I was getting a product. I am just glad I do shows all year round. I think that we should all get an extra remote. Or something?

I saw a post on Facebook today, about the current status of Audio Ape. Hopefully this link works for others.

I don't have one on order, but it's something I've been looking at.

Audio Ape sound like it is an admired product. I am curious why those that ordered in advance would do so when the item does not have a track record? I mean $600 is a bit steep for just an audio remote control. I am sure I am missing something in why it costs to make. I would like to read reviews on any piece of electronics I buy and would like the knowledge that it is road tested and the product holds up. I mean they are already on V2 and was V1 even out for more than a year yes?

I have seen may control systems come and go in the last 10 years that cant be replaced or fixed. So what made you take the leap of faith?

Very easy to set up. Great product used it tonight. The only thing I don't like is that I need a power supply to make it work. With my other other remote I just plug it into my iPad pro and go. No other power needed. But, the ape controlled my iPad with no problem. I will be trying it out more. Thanks for a great remote!

Michael, Just get yourself a battery phone bank and you won’t need AC. Here’s what I bought (it's no longer available but you’ll see what I’m talking about): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009US......F8&psc=1
