The first ever update
After long wait, the
2nd generation AirPods have arrived, and they look exactly the same. But it's
what's inside that counts. The AirPods 2 come with a wireless charging case and
a pair of familiar-looking buds that are smarter and faster than its
support hands-free "Hey Siri" functionality, allowing users to
control volume and swap songs through voice commands. There's no longer a need
to tap on the AirPods to activate Siri in this version.
The new AirPods are
equipped with an updated H1 chip, which replaces the W1 chip and
brings connectivity improvements. AirPods connect more quickly to your
devices for an even more hassle-free experience, and switching between devices
while listening to music is now two times faster. The H1 chip in the
second-generation AirPods supports Bluetooth 5.0, which should bring
AirPods pair up with
iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple Watch, Apple TV, and Mac, and thanks to the H1 chip,
you can easily switch between devices.
There have been no
design changes to the AirPods, so they continue to look similar to the
standard Apple EarPods but without the cord. AirPods are completely
wire-free, and continue to be available only in white.
AirPods continue to
offer up to five hours of battery life when listening to music, and
the case provides an additional 24 hours of battery life. The new AirPods
are more efficient with the H1 chip and talk time has increased
from two hours to three hours.
When you open up the
Charging Case, the AirPods inside connect to your device automatically, and
using built-in sensors and an accelerometer, the AirPods can detect when you
put them in your ears or take them out, playing and pausing audio accordingly.
beamforming microphones in the AirPods enable both voice calls and Siri
commands, and there's a secondary speech-detecting accelerometer that's able to
filter out background noise and focus on your voice.
You can use both
AirPods at once or just one if you want to keep an ear free to listen to
the environment around you, and Apple designed the AirPods to offer high-quality
AAC audio that sounds great with everything from songs to podcasts.
Since they share the
same dimensions as the previous AirPods, the AirPods 2 have that lightweight
effortlessness. The 0.14-ounce buds nestle gently into the ear, never causing
any uncomfortable pressure. Once they're in, they kind of fade into the
background, which speaks to their comfort.
Smarter Earphones with
Not only are the
AirPods 2 faster, they’re also smarter -- at least when it comes to Siri.
This is the first pair of Pods to feature hands-free Siri. That’s right,
instead of having to tap out your Siri requests on those long, thin AirPod
stems, you can simply say “Hey Siri,” and launch the ubiquitous digital
Battery Life and
The AirPods last for
up to five hours of non-stop music listening on a single charge, but if you're
using them for phone calls, the battery drains faster.
AirPods will last for up to three hours when talking on the phone, while the
original AirPods will last for two hours. Improvements in battery life come
from the new H1 chip and the fact that the second-generation AirPods support
With the AirPods
Charging Case or Wireless Charging Case, you can get more than 24 hours of
listening time or up to 18 additional hours of talk time. There is a quick
charge feature, so putting your AirPods into the Wireless Charging Case for 15
minutes will give you three hours of listening time.
Bluetooth and Call

5.0 instead of last gen's 4.2, the new AirPods offer a more stable
connection. With its four integrated microphones, the Elite Active 65t are
the gold standard for truly wireless earbuds.
longer-lasting, the AirPods 2 are still at the top of the heap for iPhone
owners. Apple has given people what they want with wireless charging and a
hands-free approach to Siri. And the fact that the buds offer longer talk time
and faster pairing are icing on the cake, especially since the old AirPods'
pairing was near instantaneous.
