Apple comes with new AirPods
A super-overpriced marketing mega-wonder has arrived
Apple is selling a new generation of AirPods from Wednesday, the box of which can be charged wirelessly, the company announced.
The new edition of Apple’s wireless earbuds features the new H1 chip, which should extend the battery life by one hour of talk time. Apple also offers a wireless charging box that can power the earbuds for 24 hours.
The new AirPods also have better support for Apple’s speech assistant Siri. It can now be activated with the words “Hi Siri!”, just as it has worked on iPhone and HomePod speakers for some time. In the old generation AirPods, Siri still had to be activated with a double tap on the earbuds.
The set of earbuds with a wireless charged box is offered for sale for around $300. The charging box is also available separately.
