I haven’t been this impressed in a very long time.
Ok. I didn’t think I’d be stupid enough to let it happen, yet it happened : I washed a pair of jeans… with my AirPods Pro case still in them. I only realized it after the full, 1h30min, heavy-duty cycle was done. When I found the case, I was certain it was trashed, and yet to my surprise, after leaving it outside to dry for a while, I put my AirPods back in the case, opened it next to my iPhone… and it turns out it’s working 100%. I still can’t believe it ! It’s been a few weeks now, and I haven’t had a single issue with it since.
I think we often publicize our anger or frustration when products don’t work as they should, I thought it was only fair for me to do this post to tell the community how impressed I’ve been with this. To Apple : kudos, your build quality out-weighed my negligence !
