BREAKING: Apple Releases New AirPods With Wireless Charging

The product release parade that Apple has been on over the last couple of days continues today as Apple just dropped a press release announcing new AirPods which will retail for an eye watering $269.00 CDN with a wireless charging case. Yes you read that correctly. Wireless charging which is Qi compatible has finally arrived for the AirPods. If that doesn’t interest you, $219.00 CDN gets you these AirPods without the wireless charging case, and $99.00 CDN gets you the wireless charging case alone.

So what’s different about these AirPods?

  • An Apple-designed H1 chip that enables hands-free “Hey Siri” functionality and up to 50 percent more talk time compared to the original AirPods. The H1 chip in the new AirPods makes switching between the iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac up to two times faster, and enables up to a 1.5x faster connection time for phone calls and up to 30 percent lower gaming latency.
  • Hands-free Siri allows AirPods users to say “Hey Siri” to change songs, make phone calls, adjust the volume, get directions, and more.
  • Up to three hours of talk time per charge, compared to up to two hours with the previous generation.

The new AirPods will be available in store next week and they are available to order now.

I guess this means that the rumors of AirPower being released in the spring might actually be true.
