Fear not Apple consumers, the company’s latest wireless innovation has arrived in the form of their highly anticipated AirPods.
In a press release, the company announced that the product would be available as of Wednesday online.
The AirPods will be available for in-store purchase next week. The price tag is $159 a set for what is positioned to be an impressive step forward.
The listening experience is always a pleasure to enjoy in a hands free environment. But there is more to this reveal than just bumping tunes.
The press release described both the ease of use and the flexibility of the product.
“Just open the charging case near your iPhone and with a simple tap, AirPods are immediately set up with all the devices signed into your iCloud account, including your Apple Watch, iPad and Mac,” the statement read.
“Advanced sensors detect when AirPods are in your ear and can automatically play and pause your music. Double tapping on AirPods activates Siri, allowing you to access your favorite personal assistant to select and control your music, get directions, make and receive calls or perform any other Siri task.
“This revolutionary experience is enabled by the new ultra-low power Apple W1 chip, which enables AirPods to deliver high-quality audio and industry-leading battery life in a completely wireless design. AirPods deliver up to five hours of listening time on one charge while the custom-designed charging case holds additional charges for an industry-leading total of more than 24 hours of listening time, ensuring AirPods are charged and ready to go whenever you are.”
If the statements hold true, Apple answered the primary questions regarding the wireless air buds right out of the starting gate.
Both the charging time and the ability to hold extended charges are crucial as is the opportunity to sync and control devices verbally from the set.
The holidays keep getting better.
