Seems that Apple has planned all along to release new products each day this week ahead of next week’s “It’s show time” event. This morning Apple launched the long-rumored new AirPods. They allow users to speak commands using Hey Siri instead of tapping. Battery life for phone calls is slightly better, but it is the same for audio playback.
The price for AirPods remains the same at $159, but for $40 more you can get them with a wireless charging case. This case is available separately for $79 and works with the first-generation AirPods as well.
