The new AirPods combine intelligent design with breakthrough technology and crystal-clear sound. Powered by the new Apple H1 headphone chip, AirPods now feature hands-free access to Siri using just your voice. And up to three hours of talk time on a single charge. 1
Wireless to the fullest
After a simple one-tap setup, AirPods are automatically on and always connected. 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.
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
1Testing conducted by Apple in February 2019 using preproduction AirPods (2nd generation), charging case and Wireless Charging Case units and software, paired with iPhone XS Max units and prerelease software. Volume was set to 50 per cent. Testing consisted of full AirPods battery discharge with a mobile phone call until the first AirPod stopped playing call audio. Battery life depends on device settings, environment, usage and many other factors.
