What’s a chip doing in there?
A whole lot.
All the groundbreaking things AirPods can do are driven by the custom-
designed Apple W1 chip. It produces extremely efficient wireless for a
better connection and improved sound. And the W1 chip manages
battery life so well, you can listen for five hours on a single charge.3 It’s
performance that’s unheard of in a device this small.
The power of 24-hour battery life.
AirPods deliver an industry-leading4 five hours of listening time on one
charge.3 And they’re made to keep up with you, thanks to a charging
case that holds multiple additional charges for more than 24 hours of
listening time.5 Need a quick charge? Just 15 minutes in the case gives
you three hours of listening time.6 To check the battery, hold the AirPods
next to your iPhone or ask Siri “How’s the battery on my AirPods?”
Clearly superior sound.
It’s great-sounding music, movies and more to your ears. AirPods provide
rich, high-quality AAC audio. And when you want to be heard, dual
beamforming microphones filter out background noise when you make
calls or talk to Siri.
