Wireless headphones. Finally untangled.
After a simple one-tap setup, AirPods are automatically on and always connected.* Using them is just as easy. They can sense when they're in your ears and pause when you take them out. And the AirPods experience is just as amazing whether you're listening to your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac.
Tap into Siri.
Talking to your favorite personal assistant is a cinch. Just double-tap either AirPod to activate Siri, without taking your iPhone out of your pocket.†Then, tell Siri what you need, such as "Turn up the volume on my favorite playlist," or "Call my brother Brian."
What's a chip doing in there? A whole lot.
All the groundbreaking things AirPods can do are driven by the custom-designed Apple W1 chip. It produces extremely efficient wireless for a better connection and improved sound. And the W1 chip manages battery life so well, you can listen for 5 hours on a single charge.‡ It's performance that's unheard of in a device this small.
Knows when you're talking.
A voice accelerometer recognizes when you're speaking and works with a pair of beam-forming microphones to filter out external noise and focus on the sound of your voice.
Knows when you're listening.
Optical sensors and motion accelerometers work with the W1 chip to automatically control the audio and engage the microphone, giving you the ability to use one or both AirPods. They also enable AirPods to play sound as soon as they're in your ears.
The power of 24 hour battery life.
AirPods deliver an industry-leading 5 hours of listening time on one charge.‡ And they're made to keep up with you, thanks to a charging case that holds multiple additional charges for more than 24 hours of listening time.‡ Need a quick charge? Just 15 minutes in the case gives you 3 hours of listening time.‡ To check the battery, hold the AirPods next to your iPhone or ask Siri "How's the battery on my AirPods?"
