The news about the disappearing headphone jack was hard to swallow for some, but a new set of high-performing wireless headphones might go a long way to ease the pain. Here are the top lines:
• The phone can communicate with each AirPod independently
• Sensors detect when the phones have been inserted, then start playing music
• AirPods run on a new type of Apple-baked chip
• You can activate Siri by double-tapping on the phones.
• Battery life is 5 hours. They recharge when placed in their carrying case.
• You can pair the earphones with your Apple device with a single tap.
The new Apple-designed wireless AirPods including charging case will be available for $159 from apple.com and Apple Stores beginning in late October.
