Apple is working on an updated version AirPods, which will be presented this year. The new ones AirPods will run on an improved 'W series' chip. The main function of the new headphones will be the ability to activate Siri with the voice command 'Hello Siri'.
On the original AirPods you can also use Siri, but to do this, you need to touch the headphones. The updated model will be able to hear the command 'Hello, Siri' at any time, as new iPhone and iPad. Apple is already working on another model AirPods, which will be released next year and will be somewhat waterproof. The earbuds won't be completely water resistant, but they can survive rain and splashes.
This year's model will allow users to activate the virtual assistant Siri with one voice without having to touch the headphones. The function will work in the same way as on new ones iPhone or wireless speaker HomePod.
It is not yet known what other improvements the W-series chip will receive in the new ones AirPods, but we should expect better sound quality and longer battery life.
Initially AirPods was criticized for its high price and ridiculous design, but after the release of the headphones, they immediately became one of the most popular wireless headphones on the market. Users stood in huge lines in front of stores Apple to have time to buy headphones on the day they were released. Even after a year and a half AirPods they continue to sell well. Apple has only recently been able to adjust production to meet high demand.
Let's see if the updated AirPods sounds better. This became especially interesting after the release of the column HomePod, which everyone praises so much precisely for the quality of its sound.
