Apple Finally Brings Its Airpod Wireless Headphones


Apple finally brings its Airpod wireless headphones.

The earpieces are similar in shape to the tech giant’s traditional EarPods, but connect wirelessly to the iPhone 7, which does not have a headphone jack for wired headphones.

The AirPods launch had been delayed having previously been expected in October, with Apple saying it needed a “little more time” before launching them.

The technology giant announced the AirPods in September after it famously ditched the iPhone 7 headphone jack.

Apple included a small adapter in the box for the iPhone 7 that enables traditional headphones to be connected via the iPhone’s Lightning port.

The wired EarPods that come in the iPhone 7 box as standard have also been converted to fit the Lightning connection.

Apple confirmed the AirPods would be available online from today and in their retail stores from next week. They cost £159.

The earpieces contain a microphone so users can make and receive phone calls as well as speak to virtual assistant Siri.

They also contain sensors that know when they are removed from your ears, pausing any audio at that point, while the small carry case doubles as the AirPods charger.

Opening the lid also serves as the connection trigger with a user's iPhone, and any other device signed in to their iCloud account.
