Two years after the successful introduction of AirPods, AirPods 2 came and the excitement continues.
Probably it's because you can have your name engraved on it, or you can wireless charge it in your bedside table, whatever the case it, people are buying AirPods 2. While Apple doesn't traditionally disclose sales figures for its accessories, movements of its supplier indicate that Apple is struggling to meet the demands for AirPods 2.
Taiwanese manufacturer Unitech Printed Circuit Board will be increasing its production of rigid-flex boards by 30 percent. It is widely assumed that it is due to demands from its biggest client: Apple.
Moreover, the Apple Accessory is getting big enough to get its own "AirPods Meet-up." It's also a frequent subject of memes, reports iJustine.
Prior to the release of AirPods 2, Apple is reported to have a share of 60% in the market for true wireless stereo (TWS) headphones. We can definitely guess that the Lion will keep on devouring more shares, reports WCCFTech. The new AirPods is also well-received for its better features including the new H1 chip and hands-free 'Hey Siri' support.
Meanwhile, as early as now, rumors regarding AirPods 3 are surfacing, with people saying it will have a longer battery-life among others. Huawei, Samsung, and Google just an immersed in innovating TWS, but as of now, they don't seem to post a challenge to Apple.
AirPods came to the market in 2016. Upon its reveal, people were raising eyebrows whether an Apple wireless Bluetooth earbud was necessary. Turns out, it is and fans are willing to shell out over 150 USD for hassle-free music.
AirPods were a replacement for EarPods, Apple long-time accessory for listening to music privately. Both gizmos were followed for their highly effective built-in microphone that filters out background noise.
AirPods are compatible with all BlueTooth 4.0 devices, including Android.
