After announcing its refreshed iPads, Apple has now rolled out its second-generation AirPods. The wireless ear buds are now improved in terms of features and capabilities.
The second-gen Apple AirPods come with a wireless charging case and a new H1 chip that promises improved battery life. The automatically-on AirPods can sense when they are plugged in and when they have been taken out.
One of the interesting additions is the support for Siri. Simply call out ‘Hey Siri’ to control your music, make a call, and so on. To enable the wireless charging mode, you need to set the case on a Qi-compatible charging mat and let it charge.
The new AirPods with wireless charging case will retail at $199, with the standard charging case, it will cost $159. The wireless charging case is available separately at $79.
