Introducing its second generation of wireless headphones, Apple on Wednesday launched new AirPods designed to deliver more talk time.

The new AirPods come with either a standard charging case or a new wireless charging case.

Apple said the AirPods with standard charging case will be available for Rs 14,900 and those with wireless charging case for Rs 18,900.

They will be available to order through Apple authorised resellers later this spring, the company said.

Powered by Apple-designed H1 chip, developed specifically for headphones, the new AirPods now feature the convenience of “Hey Siri” – meaning users could invoke the assistant without touching the earbud.

With this feature one would be able to change songs, make a call, adjust the volume or get directions while keeping their hands in pockets.

The second beta version of Apple’s iOS 13.3.1, released earlier this month, now includes a toggle for disabling the Ultra Wideband chip in the device. This comes after privacy issue reports around the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro that they still tracked location data even when users had turned off location services.

When that led to more questions and debates, the iPhone maker stated the behaviour was due to the fact the UWB chip in the new iPhones isn’t approved broadly around the world, so the iPhone 11 uses location services to check if UWB can be used or not, 9to5Mac reported on Friday.

“We do not see any actual security implications,” an Apple engineer was earlier quoted as saying by KrebsOnSecurity.

“It is expected behaviour that the Location Services icon appears in the status bar when Location Services is enabled. The icon appears for system services that do not have a switch in Settings.”

After giving an unsatisfactory answer, Apple had said in December that it would bring a dedicated toggle in location services to allow customers to completely turn off the feature. (IANS)
