Apple Announces New AirPods with ‘Hey Siri’ Support, Wireless Charging Case Option


In a surprise announcement following a string of daily releases this week, Apple today announced a major update to AirPods, the company's wireless earbuds. As widely speculated over the past several months, the new generation AirPods come with support for hands-free 'Hey Siri' activation, feature improved performance over the original AirPods (which launched in late 2016), and support wireless charging (using the Qi standard) via an optional case.

The Air Power charging pad is also expected to ship at the end of March. The wireless charging pad will be able to charge multiple devices at once (iPhone, AirPods, Apple Watch).
