More magical than ever.
Now with more talk time, voice-activated Siri access - and a new Wireless Charging Case - AirPods deliver an unparalleled wireless headphone experience. Simply take them out and they're ready to use with all your devices. Put them in your ears and they connect immediately, immersing you in rich, high-quality sound. Just like magic.
Wireless to the fullest.
After a simple one-tap setup, AirPods are automatically on and always connected.1 Using them is just as easy. They sense when they're in your ears and pause when you take them out. And the AirPods experience is just as amazing whether you're using them with your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad or Mac.
Just ask Siri.
Talking to your favourite personal assistant is easier than ever. Simply say "Hey Siri" for assistance without having to reach for your iPhone.
Performance you'll want to hear.
Powered by the all-new Apple H1 headphone chip, AirPods deliver a faster and more stable wireless connection to your devices - up to twice as fast when switching between active devices3, and a 1.5 times faster connection time for phone calls.4 The H1 chip also drives voice-enabled Siri access and delivers up to 30 per cent lower gaming latency.5 So whether you're playing games, listening to music or enjoying podcasts, you'll experience higher-quality sound.
Knows when you're listening.
Optical sensors and motion accelerometers work together to automatically control the audio experience, engaging the microphones for phone calls and Siri access, and enabling AirPods to play sound as soon as they're in your ears. You have the freedom to wear one or both AirPods, and you can play or skip forward with a double tap when listening to music.
Knows when you're talking.
A speech-detecting accelerometer recognises when you're speaking and works with a pair of beamforming microphones to filter out external noise and focus on the sound of your voice.
Lay it down, charge it up.
With the new Wireless Charging Case, charging is as simple as placing the AirPods case on a Qi-compatible charging mat. That's it. The LED indicator on the front of the case lets you know that your AirPods are charging. And when you're away from a charging mat, you can use the Lightning connector to charge.
The power of 24-hour battery life.
AirPods deliver an industry-leading five hours of listening time - and now up to three hours of talk time - all on one charge. And they're made to keep up with you, thanks to a charging case that holds multiple charges for more than 24 hours of listening time. Need a quick charge? Just put AirPods back in the case for 15 minutes to get up to three hours of listening time and two hours of talk time. To check the battery, hold the AirPods next to your iPhone or ask Siri "How's the battery on my AirPods?"
