After a rare delay and uncertainty surrounding the launch, Apple‘s AirPods are now available to purchase from the company’s online store, with the first deliveries scheduled to arrive just days before Christmas. These magical wireless headphones use advanced technology to reinvent how we listen to music, make phone calls, enjoy TV shows and movies, play games and interact with Siri, providing a wireless audio experience not possible before.
AirPods introduce an effortless wireless listening experience packed with high-quality audio and long battery life. With AirPods, setting up and using wireless headphones has never been easier. Just open the charging case near your iPhone and with a simple tap, AirPods are immediately set up with all the devices signed into your iCloud account, including your Apple Watch, iPad and Mac. Advanced sensors detect when Apple’s wireless earbuds are in your ear and can automatically play and pause your music. Double tapping on the wireless earbuds activates Siri, allowing you to access your favorite personal assistant to select and control your music, get directions, make and receive calls or perform any other Siri task.
The Apple’s wireless earphones deliver up to five hours of listening time on one charge while the custom-designed charging case holds additional charges for an industry-leading total of more than 24 hours of listening time.
Customers can now order AirPods from Apple‘s website for $159 USD, with an advertised delivery date of Dec. 21.
