AirPods

Apple's wireless headphones introduced with the iPhone 7 in 2016. Somewhat similar to the shape of the corded EarPods that have been included starting with the iPhone 5, the Bluetooth-based AirPods are more sophisticated. When placed in the ear, the AirPod's W1 processor provides the intelligence to connect automatically to the iPhone or Apple Watch, and double tapping the AirPods activates Siri. See iPhone 7 and EarPods.
