Apple AirPods are wireless earbuds with lightning charging case. The latest generation of Apple AirPods has been announced and released September 2018. AirPods come with a battery life of 24 hours and the product has a charging case for up to 24 hours of use on a single charge, which can be charged wirelessly or plugged into an electrical outlet. The Bluetooth Headphones for iPhone work on either iOS 10 or later, macOS Sierra 10.12 or later, and watchOS 3.0 or later.
The built-in sensors detect when AirPods are in your ears for hands-free control of your iPhone’s virtual assistant. Just double tap on the right earbud or say “Hey Siri”;
AirPods use infrared sensors and motion accelerometers to detect when they’re in your ears. The sensor measures the difference in path length between each AirPod to determine their position so they can play audio out of both AirPods simultaneously.
Under the hood, it’s all powered by a custom Apple W1 chip, a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery and sensors that detect when they’re in your ears.
This allows AirPods to have up to 5 hours of listening time on one charge. And when you’re on the go and need a quick charge, 15 minutes of charging gets you 3 hours of listening time.
AirPod charging case holds multiple additional charges for more than 24 hours of listening time. So if you’ve got just 15 minutes, you can get 3 hours of listening time — or two additional days’ worth of battery life over 24 hours total.
