iOS 14 to extend AirPods life with optimized charging

iOS 14 to extend AirPods life with optimized charging

Concern or sometimes even obsession over battery life sometimes nurtures habits that ironically degrade battery capacity over time. While devices today are smart enough not to overcharge, some practices like keeping the battery at 100% for a long time will eventually kill the battery anyway. That's true for laptops and smartphones but it is also true for the tiny earbuds some wear day in and day out. That's why Apple is apparently rolling out in iOS 14 optimized charging to extend the longevity of its smallest smart products.

AirPods 3 release date tipped just before WWDC

AirPods 3 release date tipped just before WWDC

Today AirPods 3 were tipped for a release inside the first half of the year 2021 with a design similar to that of AirPods Pro. This would essentially negate the need for future AirPods Pro units, unless a significant set of upgrades were implemented in the next several years.

iPhone 12 axe of EarPods could lead to all-wireless device

A tip this week said that the next-generation iPhone 12 collection won't necessarily include EarPods as past models have.

HTC U Ear could be the black AirPods you’ve always wanted

HTC's new CEO promised last year that the company would go back to making premium phones after admitting it failed to innovate in that market. Half a year later, that promise has yet to materialize even while HTC's Vive VR platform tries to steady its boat. There have been several whispers about HTC's next product but few if not none have come to light. Yet another rumored product joins the train and it could be the most disappointing even if these "U Ear" TWS earbuds try to fill what has been an old demand of AirPods fans.

AirPods Studio to have neck detection, no wrong way to wear it

Apple has helped push the Bluetooth audio accessory market forward by banishing the headphone jack and creating the AirPods TWS earbuds.

That day could be coming close and the AirPods Studio could soon be on your heads or around your neck. And, it turns out, there will be a difference where you do place them.

AirPods single replacements ship with new, incompatible firmware

True Wireless Stereo or TWS earbuds like the Apple AirPods are convenient and handy when you don't want to bother with wires but they also have their downsides exactly because of that. It's easy enough to lose one or both or hove one suddenly break while the other remains intact. Fortunately, Apple offers replacements for even just a single AirPod. Unfortunately, the single replacements it has been shipping apparently can't work with an older AirPod because of a mismatch in the firmware the new ones are running.
