AirPods 2 with Wireless Charging Case Has Been Officially Announced


The internet has been buzzing with rumors and speculation in anticipation for Apple to announce its highly anticipated AirPods 2 and now, the wireless earbuds have been officially revealed today. Apple announced AirPods 2 earlier today and said that the wireless earbuds are scheduled to launch during a press conference that will take place on Monday. Nonetheless, today we are going to check out everything there is to know about Apple’s new AirPods 2.

AirPods 2

Even though there aren’t that many changes that Apple could make to AirPods 2 in order to make it significantly better than the original version, Apple has found a way to do it. The Cupertino based tech giant has equipped AirPods 2 with a better wireless charging case, improved battery life and to top it all off, AirPods 2 will introduce hands-free access to the Siri voice assistant.

Price Tag

AirPods 2 will be available in two options. The first one bundles the AirPods 2 with a wireless charging case for a total of $199 and the second option ships with a normal case and it costs $159 which is the same price as the first AirPods. We should note that the wireless charging case can be purchased separately for $79 by Apple fans who already own the first version of AirPods.

Faster Performances

AirPods 2 is going to be equipped with Apple’s brand-new H1 chip that provides faster performances. Not only that, but the addition of the H1 chip is also making it possible for the AirPods 2 to offer up to 50% more talk time than the original AirPods.

The voice assistant can be activated hands-free by AirPods 2 users by simply saying “Hey Siri”. This is a nice feature because the only way to access Siri’s features on the original AirPods is to tap one of the ear buds.
