The Apple fans are looking forward to the release of the AirPods which were supposed to be available starting from October. The Apple earphones will arrive on the stores’ shelves next week. Better still, customers can purchase them online Monday.
There are several features which Apple users will most enjoy about the upcoming AirPods. First, they come with Wi-Fi connection and pairing. More precisely, the earphones will connect with your smartphone via Bluetooth.
Also, you don’t have to worry about pairing because this process is quite simple. You just have to take the AirPods out of the box, and your smartphone will display a notification with the earphones’ battery status.
With these AirPods, users won’t need to hit the pause and play button because these earphones have voice detection and infra-red sensors. In other words, the infra-red sensors detect when the AirPods are in the ears.
As such, whenever you want to pause playback, you can just pull the earphones out of your ears. In addition, the voice accelerometers will immediately recognize your voice and isolate it. Also, these accelerometers sense the vibrations produced by the sounds, so they can reduce external noise too for a better user experience.
Analysts believe that one of the primary reasons why Apple delayed the release of its earphones is battery life. Most earphones must be charged every day, but not the AirPods. The company officials say that the best thing about these earphones is that they require weekly charging.
Each AirPod provides up to five hours of use, whereas the charging case provides up to twenty-four hours of battery life. The upcoming AirPods will be available at $159 with the charging case included in the package.
Nevertheless, Apple says that the new earphones will be shipped in limited numbers and that customers should check the website for availability and updates.
The AirPods will be sold in one hundred countries including the United States, the United Kingdom, UAE, Japan, Netherlands, India, Mexico, Germany, Hong Kong, China, France, Canada, and Australia just to name a few. In order to be able to use AirPods, customers have to update their Apple devices to iOS 10, macOS Sierra, or watchOS 3.
