    will the new airpods be compatible with iPhone 6s or other earlier iPhone or iPad models. Just wondering in particular if the quick connect feature will work with the iPhone 6s rather than going through the whole Bluetooth setup process.

    Thank you!

    Wondering the same
    Perhaps with new iOS upgrade they may do this with 6/6S or SE

    Even if they don't do the easy link up will they still work with Bluetooth on these other I phones
    As I quite like them and would get them for my SE which is just a few months old and not ready to change phones yet

    I think it's a matter of what ios you have
    Ios 10 will support the quick connection with the airpods

    After reading some information the connection with older devices will be regular Bluetooth

    I don't see why they wouldn't support the quick connect on other iPhones. The compatibility mentions having an iCloud account, and the device needs to use: MacOS Sierra, iOS 10, or WatchOS 3. Quick connect on a watch or computer I wouldn't be too confident about.
