What Carphone Warehouse says
“AirPods are the smallest wireless earphones available from Apple, offering a top quality audio experience as well as voice-control with Siri.”
AirPods will forever change the way you use headphones. Whenever you pull your AirPods out of the charging case, they instantly turn on and connect to your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac.1 Audio automatically plays as soon as you put them in your ears and pauses when you take them out. To adjust the volume, change the song, make a call, or even get directions, just double-tap to activate Siri.
Driven by the custom Apple W1 chip, AirPods use optical sensors and a motion accelerometer to detect when they’re in your ears. Whether you’re using both AirPods or just one, the W1 chip automatically routes the audio and engages the microphone. And when you’re on a call or talking to Siri, an additional accelerometer works with beamforming microphones to filter out background noise and focus on the sound of your voice. Because the ultralow-power W1 chip manages battery life so well, AirPods deliver an industry-leading 5 hours of listening time on one charge.2 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.3 Need a quick charge? Just 15 minutes in the case gives you 3 hours of listening time.
Connecting your AirPods to your iOS device is easy. To start, unlock your phone, open the AirPod case, and place it next to your device.
An automatic animation will then appear on screen displaying the battery levels, and all you have to after that is click ‘Done’. If they won’t connect to your Apple device, make sure you’re running the latest software.
To find out how charged your AirPods are, hold them next to your Apple device.
Apple AirPods are designed to work with Apple products alone.
Apple AirPods can absorb up to five-hours worth of listening time, or two-hours worth of talk time, on a single charge. After being plugged in for just 15 minutes, you get up to three hours listening time, and around one hour of talk time.
