Apple just released the all-new Airpods 2 that is more magical than ever. The new AirPods now comes with a wireless charging case that now allows users to get 24 hours of listening time. Thanks to Apple for adding fast charging technology in the wireless charging case, now you can get 3 hours of listening time or 2 hours of talk time with just a 15 minutes charge.

Apple has made the AirPods setup much simpler and easier. Setting up the new AirPods just needs a single one-tap setup and is ready for use. That being said, now you no longer need to pause your favorite music manually. Apple has added a new feature that detects when the AirPods are in your ears or not. As you take them out of your ears, whatever you are listening to are auto-magically paused.

With the new AirPods, now you can communicate directly with Siri to adjust the volume, making a call, changing a song and get directions. All you have to say is “Hay Siri”, and let Siri know how it can help you.

The new AirPods price starts at $159. However, that comes with a normal charging case. The AirPods that comes with a wireless charging case costs $199.
