Wireless. Effortless. Magical.
AirPods will forever change the way you use headphones. Whenever you pull your AirPods out of the charging case, they instantly turn on and connect to your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad or Mac.(1) Audio automatically plays as soon as you put them in your ears and pauses when you take them out. To adjust the volume, change the song, make a call or even get directions, just double-tap to activate Siri.
Driven by the custom Apple W1 chip, AirPods use optical sensors and a motion accelerometer to detect when they’re in your ears. Whether you’re using both AirPods or just one, the W1 chip automatically routes the audio and engages the microphone. And when you’re on a call or talking to Siri, an additional accelerometer works with beamforming microphones to filter out background noise and focus on the sound of your voice. Because the ultra-low-power W1 chip manages battery life so well, AirPods deliver an industry-leading 5 hours of listening time on one charge.(2) And they’re made to keep up with you, thanks to a charging case that holds multiple additional charges for more than 24 hours of listening time.(3) Need a quick charge? Just 15 minutes in the case gives you 3 hours of listening time.(4)

Will the AirPods work with IPhone 6s? or Only with the new IPhone 7?

The AirPods will be able to pair the old fashioned way via Bluetooth pairing to any Bluetooth 4.0 de The AirPods will be able to pair the old fashioned way via Bluetooth pairing to any Bluetooth 4.0 device, so as long as you have a device that's compatible with Bluetooth 4.0 stereo headphones, the AirPods will be able to work with it. If you have an Apple device capable of pairing using the W1 chip, then that's great, but you don't *need* one of those devices to pair with the AirPods. If you're a rebel, you can even pair them to a Samsung Galaxy S7 or an HTC 10 phone.

From my experience and what I've heard/read, it totally depends on the shape of your ear and how wel From my experience and what I've heard/read, it totally depends on the shape of your ear and how well the AirPods fit for you. If you've noticed that your EarPods fit well in your ear you shouldn't have any issues with the AirPods falling out during sports or running. I have been using mine at the gym for the past week and a half and they haven't once fallen out of my ears.
