"AirPods are the first headphones to deliver a breakthrough wireless audio experience. With the new Apple W1 chip, they deliver innovative features including high quality sound, great battery life and automatic setup.” - Phillip Schiller, Senior Vice President of Apple Worldwide Marketing.Schiller adds that AirPods are simple to use, with no switches or buttons. They automatically connect to all your Apple devices and let you access Siri with just a double tap. Let's get this out of the way, they look just like EarPods with the cable lopped off, that's it. No major redesign and that's the problem. EarPods can be slippery buggers, especially when working out. If a wired pair of earphones can fall out that easily, then what will happen to wireless ones with the same slippery design? Overall, the iPhone 7 is not a major change in design but does pave the way for 2017's 10-year anniversary iPhone which is expected to be the major design overhaul we're all so desperately waiting for.
