Wireless Beats headphones reportedly coming as an AirPods alternative

Apple's Airpod Wireless Earphones Get a Makeover

Best Buy: Apple AirPods $199.99 (regularly $219.99)

Apple says switching between an iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac is two times faster with the new AirPods and connection time for phone calls is one-and-a-half times faster than first-generation Airpods. It'll charge your Apple Watch and your iPhone or AirPods (in a wireless charging case) at the same time, and it won't cost anywhere near as much as the AirPower pad inevitably will. Multiple sources are reporting that Apple's previously previewed AirPower charging mat may finally be releasing after all.

Of course, one of the best new features is the wireless charging case. Apples AIrPods are quickly becoming the most popular pair of Bluetooth earbuds and a new Beats alternative could reportedly launch in April. The older AirPods required tapping on it to launch Siri.

The case-friendly charging pad uses a micro USB, has anti-slip rubber on the surface plus on the bottom, along with an LED indicator. I love those details, that you've had no idea how fabulously we got that wrong, for so long, as we were designing and developing it. If you thought that the first generation AirPods were slightly slower to connect and switch between devices then Apple claims the new AirPods offer two times faster connect times. The Wireless Charging Case is compatible with any Qi wireless charger.

Better battery life You can expect the same battery time of around 5 hours but it now "offers 50% more talktime". The charging case other than getting wireless capability also has a small change with the charging light now sitting up front.

Users who aren't interested in the new wireless charging case could get their second-gen AirPods a bit sooner.
