Clearly, the apple brand does not stop! After launching on his Apple Store online a new iPad Air 10.5 inches, a new iPad mini 5, and some new iMac with 4K and 5K screens, the Cupertino company has just revealed its new AirPods. A nice surprise, especially since we weren’t expecting them before their official announcement, which should happen on March 25, during a keynote event.
However, are these AirPods 2 that Apple fans are still impatiently waiting for? The announcement was made via Twitter from Apple CEO Tim Cook, who posted a photo of him holding an iPad. On this iPad, we can see a drawing of AirPods … strictly similar to the old ones. On the Apple Store, the new AirPods appeared, at an unusual price: € 229. Or 50 € more expensive than the existing AirPods.
Visually identical to the current AirPods, this new model justifies its price by its fast charging case and especially wireless! The box had to be connected via its Lightning port. From now on, it has Qi charging stations, AirPower, etc. With a single charge of 15 minutes, these new AirPods will be able to support 5 hours of listening and 3 hours of telephone conversation. The case will deliver 24 hours of autonomy.
Another major innovation: the possibility of triggering Siri via voice, whereas previously it had to be triggered by tapping one of its AirPods. Sold at € 229, they therefore bring undeniable novelties to the versions already released previously.
