    To add you can trigger Siri from the airpod by tapping it.

    I feel like they could add in some different tap combinations to make it work. It's two taps for Siri, maybe three taps to skip the song? They wouldn't need to add play/pause if they already do that when you take them out of your ear. If they don't add audio controls then I can always use my Apple Watch.

    As ugly as these are it seems like Apple doesn't employ any designers.

    I'm hoping for something like that too.

    Single tap on one side for play/pause, the other side for mute microphone.

    My airpot can only dispense hot water. No playback controls of any kind. image.jpeg

    I hated the ear buds as one size does not fit all. People ears are as different as finger prints and I do not expect a good fit on these either.

    thats valid. I do hear though (no pun intended :) ) that these stay in and are more comfortable from those on the demo floor despite their heritage.

    You'll find it can also dispense colder beverages and other drinks of different temperatures.

    This is what Apple's AirPods look like from the front.

    I'm not following your logic.

    They're shaped like the inside of a human ear. Don't blame Apple, blame evolution.
