Apple AirPods Cool Features
When Apple decided to remove the headphone jack from the newest iPhone, fans of the brand had mixed emotions about the decision. Many people wanted to know why the company would make such a drastic change to a successful product. The company wants to promote the new AirPods. From the time the wireless headphones have been introduced to the market, the company has been flooded with technical questions. The new earbuds might seem like a futuristic product, but the brand’s developers are standing behind the new product.
Bluetooth Technology and AirPods
The earbuds are simply wireless headphones, and the price tag is less than $200. The new phone does not come with a pair of AirPods. Since the company slightly changed the design of the newest iPhone, the new phone comes with a wired pair of earbuds. The earbuds plug into the lightning port. The AirPod earbuds use Bluetooth technology. The new earbuds also have a W1 chip. Instead of searching through the settings menu on the iPhone, the W1 chip gives the newest phone a pop-up window. The window will prompt the user to pair the AirPods with another device.
The Apple W1 Chip
The chip also gives the earbuds a longer battery life. When the earbuds are not in your ear, the AirPods will preserve the battery. The new earbuds also have infrared sensors. You can use the AirPods individually. When you are not listening to music, you can take phone calls with one AirPod. The AirPods have a magnetic carrying case that charges the earbuds.
Apple Device Switching
The new earbuds can last several hours between charges. You can listen to music for five hours before the earbuds will need to be recharged. The earbuds can be used with a MacBook, iPad or an Apple watch. If you are going to pair your earbuds with other Apple devices, the other devices will need to use the newest operating system. You can also switch devices. If you want to change devices, you need to click the AirPods icon. The new earbuds can be paired with any Bluetooth audio player. AirPods are not waterproof. You can use them at the gym, but you should not submerge them in water.
Siri and Volume Control
When you tap on the earbuds, Siri can follow your commands. You can play and pause your music with the double tap feature by simply changing the Bluetooth settings. The new earbuds do not have a sound control button. If you want to adjust the volume, you will have to activate Siri.
In many ways, the new earbuds are ahead of their time. The AirPods are multi-functional, and you do not have to deal with a tangled cord. The earbuds have a simple setup process. If you already own an iPad and an iMac, you should add the AirPods to your Apple collection.
