AirPods 2: News

The AirPods is a series of true-wireless Bluetooth earbuds designed by Apple. The AirPods Max is an exception since it has an over-ear design. All other AirPods feature an in-ear design. The first-generation AirPods were released in 2016 and the second-generation AirPods debuted in March 2019. The AirPods were Apple’s entry-level earphones alongside the AirPods Pro and AirPods Max. Compared to the first generation, the second-generation AirPods feature a new H1 chip, longer talk time, Bluetooth V5.0 support, and hands-free “Hey Siri” support. The second-generation AirPods retained the design of its predecessor. The AirPods are compatible with devices using Bluetooth version 4.0 or newer including Android and Windows devices although some features may not work. As for iOS devices, second-generation AirPods are fully compatible with devices using iOS 12.2 or newer, macOS Mojave, and watchOS 5.2 or newer. The advertised five-hour battery life of the AirPods is prone to severe degradation with two-year-old AirPods lasting less than 2.5 hours on a single charge.
