APPLE has revealed the new and improved AirPods at its latest event.
The new earbuds have longer battery life and spatial audio for a better listening experience.
Apple promised more control over your music and phone calls with better sensors.
It said the third-generation AirPods can deliver a powerful base and “crisp, clean, high frequencies.”
AirPods are sweat and water resistant.
They’ve also got a new contour design that delivers sound straight to your ears.
The sound should be optimized for you in real time so that you can hear the music as it was intended to be heard.
There’s also one-touch setup, which will automatically pair your AirPods with other devices.
Battery life has increased to six hours.
The case will cost you an additional four full charges.
MagSafe and wireless charging have been added to the case.
You can order the new AirPods on the Apple website today and they’ll be available in stores on October 26.
They cost $179/£169.
Greg Joswiak, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, said: “AirPods forever changed wireless headphones with their stunning design, incredible sound and magical feel.
“We are excited to introduce the next generation AirPods, which feature unmatched sound through Adaptive EQ and spatial audio with dynamic head tracking, as well as seamless connectivity between Apple devices – the world’s best-selling headphones makes it even better.”
What is local audio?
Spatial audio is what Apple calls the immersive sound feature of its AirPods.
It works by using sensors and directional audio to track where your head is in relation to the device you’re listening to content on.
This essentially creates an immersive sound experience.
This is great when you’re watching a movie or TV because you can sense the direction of the sound as if you were yourself in a movie or TV series.
To take advantage of spatial audio on AirPods while watching TV, you’ll need to watch content from a platform that supports it.
