Apple unveils the AirPods wireless headphones
Since Apple decided to drop the traditional audio jack and leave its latest iPhone flagships without this connectivity option, the AirPods wireless headphones come just in time. A product also made by Apple, the AirPods can provide high sound quality, a long battery life, and automatic setup.
According to Apple's senior VP of worldwide marketing, Philip Schiller, "AirPods are simple and magical to use, with no switches or buttons, automatically connecting to all your Apple devices simply and seamlessly, and letting you access Siri with just a double tap." These innovative headphones have no buttons, using dual optical sensors and accelerometers to detect when they are in the ear. Removing both pauses music, while removing just one allows the user to have a conversation, automatically resuming music playback when both are in place once again.
Apple claims an autonomy of up to 5 hours on a single charge. The price of the AirPods with the charging case is $159 USD, and those interested will be able to acquire this accessory starting in late October via Apple.com and Apple Stores.
