Rumors of higher-end AirPods 2 have also been circulating online since a year ago, suggesting that the new in-ear audio accessory from Apple will be noise-canceling, over-ear headphones.

The new AirPods will be available in India later this spring. AirPods with the wireless charging case will cost Rs 18,900. You can now say "Hey Siri" and give it numerous commands between changing music, to calling someone and asking it to "Turn down the music". Apple also claims that the AirPods know when you're talking and filters out external noise so your voice is clear when on calls.

In addition to the existing wireless charging input that the latest-generation iPhones already support, Apple's smartphone will also launch with reverse wireless charging. Then again, if Apple plans to position these as a more feature-rich pair of wireless earphones, we could see them priced even higher. Among other things, that means these new PowerBeats will sport "Hey Siri" functionality when they arrive, just like the new AirPods do.

What's more, Powerbeats are sweat-resistant which is a must-have for people who exercise frequently.

The new Apple-designed H1 chip was built specifically for headphones and delivers performance efficiencies, faster connect times, and 50% more talk time compared to the first-generation AirPods. And the AirPods 2 price is $159 with the standard charging case (Lightning cable) or $199 with the Wireless Charging Case.

The AirPods 2 can be purchased from the apple official website and selected stores. While Apple is offering the AirPods 2 with a Qi wireless charging case, it is charging extra for it.

This past Wednesday, Apple unveiled and released their second generation wireless AirPods 2, which they claim are "More magical than ever".
