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.

Apple is planning to upgrade camera resolution and setup in iPhones, to be unveiled this year.

While the front camera would be upgraded from 7MP to 12MP, triple-camera setup would be implemented in the 6.5-inch and 5.8-inch OLED iPhones, along with a new super-wide 12MP lens, according to Ming-Chi Kuo, famous Apple expert and predictor.

Both super-wide and front camera lenses will be coated black to make them blend better with the surrounding bezel for an “inconspicuous” look, 9To5Mac reported on Saturday. Thus, it would be almost impossible to see the new lens, improving the apparent aesthetic symmetry.
