We all know that the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus don’t come with a 3.5 mm jack and to fill this gap Apple Inc. unveiled a new in segment wireless earphones that are more of like an ear plug called “Apple Airpods”. The main problem here is that still the Airpods are under construction and haven’t been launched. Read my report for the reason behind it.
Apple recently launched the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus and that too without a 3.5 mm earphone jack. While for most of us the story ends here only but for those who have bought one of those iPhones, the story has just begun. Apple stated that to fill the gap there is going to be a new in range product named, “Airpods” is going to launch which would be able to let the user hear music as well as would also be available to receive calls. Well, this seemed like the perfect ending but no, the problem is that the Airpods have not yet arrived and a source familiar to the same has spoke up on the matter stating the possible reason behind the delay.
We all know that most of the wireless headsets are made in a way so that one ear piece receives a signal from a gadget via Bluetooth, and then transmits the signal to the other earpiece.
But with the Airpod earpieces the scene would be different; Apple stated that the Airpods would be independent to receive signals, which will ensure that both of the plugs receive audio at the same time without any distortion. According to the report this could be the possible reason one.
Secondly, the problem is the Airpods are so small, much of like an ear bud which makes them to easily be lost, what would happen if the battery runs over or the user loses one of them?
The third problem is that to make the built-in microphone able to transmit a user’s voice without picking up excessive background noise in the process because again they barely cross the earlobe then distortion might occur when the user would speak, the source states that this is also the problem Apple is facing.
Apple has not really given an official statement on the same but the company spokesman spoke a few words. He stated, “We don’t believe in shipping a product before it’s ready, and we need a little more time before Airpods are ready for our customers,”
Some reports state that these Airpods can be seen by January 2017 and their arrival in the lucrative Holiday season is near to impossible.
