Today, Apple announced the updated AirPods headphones, which can be ordered now, and they will appear in stores next week.
New AirPods provide 50% more talk time, support the “Hi, Siri” function and come with a new wireless charging case.
Like the old model, the new headphones easily and quickly connect to the device using the screen that appears on it, if you hold the AirPods case and open the lid. After you connect the headphones, they will be available on all your devices that are tied to one iCloud account.
The W1 processor was replaced with a new H1 processor with a custom audio architecture designed specifically for headphones.
The H1 processor is responsible for the following functions:
- Hi, Siri.
- An extra hour of talk time.
- More stable wireless connectivity with devices.
- Switching between active devices is 2 times faster.
- The delay in games is 30% lower.
- The connection time to telephone calls is 1.5 times faster.
