New Ad : iPhone 7 + AirPods – Stroll
Apple has released four new ads showcasing the AirPods. Starring Lil Buck, a LA-based dancer joking to the tune of Down by Marian Hill. Defying gravity, the main ad – Stroll – showed how it magically stays in place while he danced. The other ads also show how you interact with the AirPods and also how easily it pairs with the iPhone. See all of them above.
Currently there’s a 6-week wait for the AirPods if you want to buy them via Apple. I’ve tried it briefly and they stayed snuggly within my ears although I didn’t do anything physical to try to dislodge it.
One thing which I can vouch for is the new W1 chip definitely extends both the range and the battery life. I bought the Beats Solo3 Wireless headset when it was first launch in September. With an average two-hours plus usage daily during commute, I only need to change these cans once every two weeks. As for range, you can read the test by iDownloadblog to see how far the W1 extends the coverage. Lastly, if you’re using the iPhone with a Mac, and owns an iCloud account, pairing is done once you do on one device. It syncs across your other Macs or iOS devices via iCloud and just need to select it via the Volume control to play music to your W1-powered device.
Wireless earphones are the way to go – whether Apple killed the 3.5mm jack or not – once you go wireless, you’ll never look back, especially ones with the W1 chip.
