How Will Much Will Cost To Replace One Of The Pair Of AirPod Earphones


Apple has finally revealed how much it will cost to replace one of its new AirPods .

In a statement on the company's support site , it revealed that just one of the little earphones will cost £65 to replace if you lose it.

Customers will also be charged £65 to replace a lost charging case, and £45 to service the battery in a single AirPod or the charging case itself.

The wireless earphones, which went on sale for £159 in the UK this week , have been the subject of much debate since they were unveiled alongside the iPhone 7 in September.

The headphones are completely independent of each other, and can be used individually as well as in a pair.

Many people have expressed concern they will lose the tiny devices, and some companies have gone to great lengths to come up with solutions to this problem.

Phone case company Spigen has made a white strap to link the earphones together in a loop around your neck, while 3D-printer company M3D came up with some bucket earrings designed to catch the AirPods if they fall out.

However, Apple's chief executive Tim Cook insists the iPhone 7's new wireless AirPods won't fall out of your ears - even if you use them on a treadmill.

"The wires tend to help the ear bud fall out right because it applies weight on the earbuds," he said in an interview with ABC News .

"By snipping the wires, I have never personally had one fall out since I have been using them."

Originally scheduled to go on sale in October, Apple has left it until just a week and a half before Christmas to launch its AirPods.

The earphones were delayed several times , with Apple claiming it needed more time to iron out issues with the devices, which link up to the iPhone via a Bluetooth connection.

While Apple did not revealed the reason for the delay, the Wall Street Journal reported that the issue may have been to do with the AirPods being more complex than other Bluetooth headphones.

Regular wireless headphones receive the Bluetooth signal in one earpiece, but AirPods receive independent signals in both, so Apple must ensure they are perfectly synchronised to avoid distortion.
