Apple introduced a EarPods Lightning and a Bluetooth AirPods alongside the crisp new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus . So far everything follows the natural plan and traditional marketing strategy of the Cupertino company ...
But in the case of AirPods we find a nice curiosity, it is that the wearable will be compatible with any smartphone and tablet, not only for Apple products. And this usually does not happen very often.
As we report from The Verge , the new AirPods work seamlessly on any device with Bluetooth connectivity.
The official list of software requirements for audio accessories show iOS 10 watchOS 3 and macOS Sierra. Anyway, it seems that in these operating systems is where AirPods can deploy all its functions and features.
Of course, from Apple say AirPods use a device from another company is "dull." The company told The Verge that "lose the magic" when used in another smartphone or tablet.
And ... of course, the magic involves fast connection, the virtual assistant, and the ability to sync between devices without having to re-pair the accessory via Bluetooth.
It seems that the AirPods Apple work more or less like any other Bluetooth accessory audio playback on Android and Windows Phone devices. The AirPods will go on sale in late October by 179 €, so you will not have to wait long to see the "little magic" that offer on your Android smartphone.
Do you think Apple should offer compatibility with other devices on more accessories? What do you think about AirPods? Are you thinking of purchasing?
