Back in September, Apple launched its new wireless headphones, AirPods that match with the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus smartphones with no headphone jack. Basically, the new AirPods include the ability to play or pause music, answer calls as well as talk to Siri. Besides, Apple’s new wireless headphones also detect your ears when you put them in your ear thanks to its infrared sensors.
Apple is officially selling its long-awaited wireless headphones, AirPods in the market following the launch delay in October. If you are planning to pick up Apple’s new wireless AirPods, chances that you will need to buy the AirPods Strap to make sure that you never lose your AirPods while also adding the convenience of being able to rest your new AirPods around your neck.
Have you ever wondered what happens when you lose your new AirPods? In reality, Apple offers a one-year warranty for its new wireless headphones. The warranty involves audio defects and free replacements for faulty batteries. However, if your AirPods are not under warranty, Apple will charge 69 USD for each AirPod or charging case if they get damaged or lost.
Apple’s move brings in relief to Apple fans who are planning to pick up the company’s new wireless headphones while worrying that their new headphones become useless if one part is lost or broken.
Apple is also replacing broken or damaged charging case for 49 USD and this can be done at Apple Store. However, the replacement fee is actually high, while you can buy Spigen’s $10 AirPods Strap for just 10 USD that attaches one AirPod to the other, minimizing the chance of losing both of them. It is really a small price to pay to protect your $159 gadget.
