With the new AirPods, you'll experience wireless headphones in a whole new way. Just take them out of the charger and they're ready to use on your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac.
With the tap of a finger, you set up the AirPods and they work like magic. They're automatically turned on and always connected. The AirPods even detect when they're in your ears and pause when you take them out.
To adjust the volume, change the song, call someone or get directions, just say "Hey Siri" and what you want to do. You can wear just one or both AirPods and double-tap to play a track or skip to the next when listening to music or podcasts.
AirPods offer 5 hours of playback and 3 hours of talk time per charge. And with a charging case that holds more charges for more than 24 hours of playback, they'll keep up with whatever you're doing. Need a quick charge? After just 15 minutes in the charging case, you can listen to 3 hours of music or talk for 2 hours.
Controlled by the new Apple H1 chip, AirPods use optical and accelerometer sensors to tell if they're in your ear. The H1 chip automatically routes audio and activates the microphone - whether you use both AirPods or just one. And when you're on the phone or talking to Siri, an additional accelerometer with speech recognition and waveband microphones help reduce outside noise and make your voice clearer.
