Apple Releases AirPods Just in Time for Christmas

This week Apple made its AirPods available to order from its online store, with the product slated to reach retail stores next week.

“AirPods introduce an effortless wireless listening experience packed with high-quality audio and long battery life,” says Apple.

With AirPods, setting up and using wireless headphones has never been easier. Just open the charging case near your iPhone and with a simple tap, AirPods are immediately set up with all the devices signed into your iCloud account, including your Apple Watch, iPad and Mac. Advanced sensors detect when AirPods are in your ear and can automatically play and pause your music. Double tapping on AirPods activates Siri.

A pair of AirPods cost $159 and, if ordered online today, will ship before Christmas.
