How Apple designed the Airpod to stay securely in your ear
- A proximity sensor that would activate each earpiece only when placed in-ear.Earpieces could be used individually.
- A touch sensitive back casing on earpieces that could be used to summon siri or answer calls.
- Apple claims that its airpods would be able to filter background noises.This remains to be seen.
You see the earpods and the airpods look practically the same and there is hardly any change in the basic earpiece design. Yes the wired cord in the conventional acts as a little bit of a supporting element for the earpieces, but ultimately when you are running or working out, the cords tend to sway to and fro every time (unless you have a clip attached to your tee shirt!) and that could loosen the grip of the earpods, otherwise they ought to remain intact.
So basically if you haven’t faced problems using earpods then the same could be applicable to airpods as well; the only difference is if any side of the earpods falls out accidentally, it still remains attached to the wire/iPhone and if you happen to drop an airpod and don’t realise it sooner, well $159 it is!
AirPods Are The Beginning Of Apple’s Audio Augmented Reality Platform
What Is The Technology Behind AirPods?
With AirPods, Apple is moving to a platform that will augment reality in a material way by presenting Siri in a more direct and personal way, directly in your ears with a simple double tap to the Pod. The instant on-demand Siri information presented to you throughout the day will become as valuable as using the touchscreen on an iPhone, allowing even more effortless access to your calendar, notepad, text, tweets, email and of course interaction with phone calls and music. With a 5 hour battery life and a 15 minute quick charge giving a interim 3 hour boost allowing for virtually all day use with a minor break.
- The pairing is crazy simple, and the fact that it then automatically pairs to your other Apple devices via iCloud is pretty sweet. Apple did a great job taking advantage of their eco-system here.The headphones are pretty sleek looking, which of course you expect with an Apple product.
AirPods Are A New Device Platform
AirPods are truly self contained computers that soon will have their own apps primarily centered around the Siri Intent Domains and soon other innovations. A rich development environment will grow around Siri and include unique features that only in-ear devices like AirPods can create. The double tap to activate Siri will over time become one of the most powerful aspects to AirPods and it’s successors. At some point this will morph into an entire device platform of its own and ultimately require less or no tethering to an iOS device or a computer. It all started with AirPods.
