After several rumors, Apple has introduced new AirPods. It has the latest Apple H1 headphone chip for a faster and more stable wireless connection and also drives voice-enabled “Hey Siri” access making it easier to change songs, make a call, adjust the volume or get directions and delivers up to 30 per cent lower gaming latency.
It also comes with a new wireless charging case that offers wireless charging with Qi-compatible charging solutions. An LED light indicator located on the front of the case conveniently shows the charge status. Existing AirPods customers can purchase the standalone Wireless Charging Case. Each case holds additional charges for more than 24 hours of total listening time. The new AirPods also offer up to 5 hours of listening time on one charge. 15 minutes charging offers up to 3 hours of listening time.
