Apple AirPods price cut by 15% ahead of Black Friday deals
With Black Friday just around the corner, it's surprising to see Apple's second-generation AirPods with a price like this. Savings of up to 15% can see you rocking the wireless buds far sooner than you might have planned if you've been holding off for the deal of a lifetime.
Walmart is currently offering AirPods for just $144 ( with the standard charging case) and $169 (with the wireless charging case) in the US. Meanwhile, the UK sees prices down to £140.99 and just £169 respectively.
Already sporting first-generation AirPods? Amazon is also discounting the wireless charging case by itself across the US and UK. You can pick it up now for $69 at Walmart / £69 at Amazon to give your existing buds a new lease of life.
With Apple's H1 chip under the hood and hands-free access to Siri, the latest generation of AirPods pack a punch in streamlined usability over their predecessors. Simply pop the wireless headphone buds into your ears and enjoy seamless integration with all your Apple gadgets at double the switching speed – no more waiting around to connect to a new device, second-generation AirPods swap easily.
That H1 chip serves its purpose, too. Apple originally planned to double the talk time of their first-generation buds, but in reality you'll get around an hour extra – not bad for three hours instead of two. You will, however, notice the boost in your call performance, essentially reducing the time it takes for you to connect and improving both incoming sound and outgoing speech quality. Plus, 30% lower latency will keep things running smooth and snappy.
There's never been a better time to scoop up an AirPods deal. This outstanding price comes just after the release of iOS 13, which opened up AirPod functionality to iMessage and other third-party messaging apps as well as shared listening, a nifty new feature that allows you to pair two sets of AirPods to a single device.
