Apple defined as "courage" the act of innovation in the iPhone 7 after permanently remove the 3.5 mm jack connector for EarPods. Something that so far no technology company had dared to do.
The company wants to move, as soon as possible, to a new era without cables. To do this, he presented the new AirPods with Bluetooth connection.
The new AirPods are designed to run on iOS 10 macOS and watchOS 3. That is, they are compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Mac and Apple Watch. In addition, they also work on products from other companies.
AirPods: where magic resides
Apple's Bluetooth AirPods have a built-in W1 chip that basically makes everything work just fine. The chip W1 is the brain that controls the audio AirPods and activates the microphone automatically through optical sensors and accelerometers movement.
Apple executives and employees love to mention that AirPods are "magical". Why? They do not need cables, because they automatically connect to remove them from the case, or they stop audio playback when you take one of two AirPods, among other things ...
As you know, AirPods have not yet been marketed in Apple Stores. However, some lucky ones have already been lucky enough to try them out. Although that, most of them have done so in a room full of journalists with a lot of background noise.
Other few, like the user that you will see in the video that follows, have had the opportunity to do a review of the AirPods exclusively.
They have a range of three hours after a charge of 15 minutes and a range of 5 hours after a full charge. But with its special case its battery will last 24 hours. It is important to add that we also have support for Siri, which is activated through touch gestures on them, like audio playback.
It is very difficult to know, at this point, whether Apple AirPods offer good AAC audio quality, since the review AirPods are not the end product. In fact Apple delayed its sale because they were not yet ready. But they say the noise reduction is absolutely spectacular.
