Apple already announced new iPads and new iMacs this week. And now to continue the reason for updated hardware, it just released second-generation AirPods and joined them (or your originals), a wireless charging case.
Airpods with Better Battery and Hey Siri
We think AirPods is good for convenience, especially if you are an iPhone or iPad user. They travel well, activate and pair more easily to your Apple devices than any other Bluetooth device. This is partly due to the custom W1chip Apple, built to improve wireless connectivity. What we want them to be is sound insulation, wireless charging and longer battery life.
Well, two out of three are not bad, and Apple delivered. The latest version of AirPods has a custom H1 chip that takes what AirPods works well and improves it. Apple claims the new AirPods will connect to your devices even faster and the battery will last longer. Second generation AirPods should provide an extra hour of talk time (the company calls this a 50% improvement), and switching between devices should be twice as fast as the original AirPods. And they have "Hey Siri" capabilities that someone will use. Probably accidental.
A new wireless charging case provides even more convenience
Wireless charging is one of the features you can live without until you have it. And when you have it, you won't go back. The good news is that Apple released a wireless charging case for AirPods along with the hardware update. The better news is that they are compatible with the previous generation of AirPods.
No surprise, the wireless charging bag uses the Qi standard and will work with all the Qi charging pads you have now. What you will not hear about is AirPower, which is still an unspoken topic with Apple. You can buy the wireless case separately for $ 79 if you already have AirPods.
If you are on the market new AirPods you can either buy the new hardware today with a standard case for 159 USD or with the wireless charging bag for 199 USD. If you do not already have AirPods and you think you might want a wireless charging case, it is very meaningful to buy them at the front, as there is a $ 40 difference between buying it as a bundle or buying it separately.
It is if you do not prefer to buy one of the more cheaper options that we recommended earlier.
