Apple launches its wireless AirPods
With the launch of Apple’s 3.5mm jack-less iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, many were left wondering how the Cupertino giant would address the loss of the said feature. With that, they also launched the AirPods, their first wireless ear gear designed to work with the iPhone and the Apple watch.
These are the company’s first true wireless earbuds as they only rely on wireless connections to transmit audio data. They also sport a microphone that senses the direction of your voice for better audibility. The AirPods are also equipped with the first Apple W1 chip designed for high-fidelity and consistent audio output. As for its battery life, these alone can play back up to 5 hours of music. With its portable battery case, it can deliver up to 24 hours of music experience.
The Apple AirPods are set to be on sale in select markets later this month with a USD159 (roughly Php7,500) price tag.
