New Apple AirPods cost $159
As expected, Apple removed the old lovely headphone jack with iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. This means, you have two options to listen music with a headphone. You will either get a new headphone which uses lightning ( like the one that updated EarBuds ) or you will get the wireless ones.
In the past, we have had few wireless earphones. However, there were few problems with them. First of all, they sucked at the battery life so did with the sound quality. Nevertheless, they were expensive.
Now, you have a new option. It is called as Apple AirPods and sold separately for $159 which is actually cheaper than its rivals.
Let’s start with how you pair AirPods with your Apple device. You just need to hold the AirPod case close the device and then open its cover. This way, you will see a pop-up on the screen where you can click on the “Connect” button. The good thing is that once you connect your new AirPods to your one Apple device, you can use it with your other Apple devices without doing anything. Here is a catch though. They only work with iOS 10, watchOS 3 or macOS Sierra.
After you connected them, you will be able to listen music for up to 5 hours. The case, though, provides total of 25 hours of listening.
Under the small body of AirPods, there is a new chipset called Apple W1 and W1 is responsible for many things. For example, thanks to the W1 and the new sensors, AirPods know if you are wearing two of them or only one. This way, they automatically arrange the sound.
However, if you are going to buy iPhone 7 and don’t want to spend extra money, then you can just use the standard EarBuds or any headphone by using the adapter.
