All-new contoured design
AirPods are lightweight and offer a contoured design. They sit at just the right angle for comfort and to better direct audio to your ear. The stem is 33 per cent shorter than AirPods (2nd generation) and includes a force sensor to easily control music and calls.
Spatial audio with dynamic head tracking
Sound is placed all around you to create an immersive, three-dimensional listening experience for music, TV shows and movies. Gyroscopes and accelerometers in AirPods work together to track your head movements — so it sounds like you’re in the centre of songs and scenes.¹
Music is automatically tuned to suit the shape of your ear. Inward-facing microphones detect what you’re hearing, then adjust low- and mid-range frequencies to deliver the rich details in every song.
Longer battery life
AirPods have an extra hour of battery life compared with AirPods (2nd generation) for up to six hours of listening time² and up to four hours of talk time.⁴ An enhanced skin-detecting sensor accurately turns AirPods on or off, preserving the battery when necessary. With just five minutes of charge, you’ll get around an hour of listening or talk time. And the MagSafe Charging Case delivers more than 30 hours of battery life and is compatible with MagSafe and wireless chargers.
