Always on Hey Siri. I never used Siri on AirPods as Play/Pause + Skip track / 30s in podcasts were more useful to me. Now taps are freed up for those and you can use Siri at any time. Also an extra hour talk time.Do the second generation AirPods add anything? Other than wireless charging.
I didn’t wanna just throw them away and my wife didn’t really want new ones because she didn’t even know if she would like them, so far she hasn’t had any issues with them, but she doesn’t use them for very long each session.Just told this to my wife and she can’t stop laughing
Not really. The new chip makes switching devices faster, but that’s about it. However, I didn’t get them for the new features, I got them because I loved my old ones but the batteries were shot.Was just about to start a thread on this.
I've noticed my AirPods are not lasting long. Took a phone call with them this morning and I got the sad tones after only about half an hour.
If I use them for listening to podcasts, they're lasting maybe an hour and a half. Am I doomed to have to think about replacing them. Do the second generation AirPods add anything? Other than wireless charging.
June 2017 purchase here, on its first year of usage, I’d use them at work charging them during lunch (no music or anything, just in my ears to answer calls that come in). I then use it for workouts for around 1 hour 5x a week after work.For those with severe battery degradation after 3 years, how long do you use them each day?
I’ve had mine for 14 months and think the battery may have degraded only slightly as I still get hours out of a charge but perhaps not quite as new.
I use them daily for less than 1 charge cycle (on average). Just wondering how long I should expect them to last. It probably doesn’t matter as I will replace them sooner rather than later with the new (rumored) ones. I also have my eye on those new Sony buds.
You may want to clean the contact points of your charging case with a dry Q-tip as dust might get in the way of it touching the lower tip of your right AirPod.My original ear pods are HORRIBLE!
Not only do they not hold a charge very long... the right one doesn't like to charge half the time! I'll stick them in the charging case and when I go to use them again it's at like 2%.... I have to take it out... put it back in... and THEN it will start charging. Happens constantly!
What's your replacement method? Replace two buds for $49 each or buy a new pair?Get about 35-45 minutes per charge. Replaced them and also purchased PowerBeats Pro.
