Apple AirPods features

 

The Apple AirPods are wireless earphones so no more tangled up cables when listening to your favourite music. Apple removed the 3.5mm headphone jack from their latest iPhone models and these AirPods were the answer to users facing a dilemma about what to use with their iPhones.

The AirPods are high quality earphones and include intelligent software that will instantly connect them to your iPhone when they are removed from their charging case. Siri is activated with a simple double tap on the AirPods so you can skip songs, make a call or get directions without having to grab the handset.

Motion accelerometer and optical sensor technology detects when the earphones are placed in the ears so they will automatically play audio and turn on the microphone.

The smart W1 chip manages battery life for up to five hours of listening time and placing the earphones back in the charging case gives another three hours of usage after a quick 15 minute charge.
