AirPods: Ruthless Battery Killers

AirPods are an Apple sensation and everybody wants them. Before the creation of the wireless earbuds, the brand’s EarPods was the only choice available. Their design was standard with connected wires and a volume remote. EarPods met all the requirements of normal earbud functions such as listening to music or making phone calls. Why then did Apple need to upgrade?

New Frontier of Headphones: AirPods

After the release of AirPods, customers were delighted by the change especially because the earbuds came with a tiny wireless charging compartment. Barring the wires, AirPods have the same design as EarPods. What makes the design irritating is the fact that the phone must have the Bluetooth feature switched on for the earbuds to work. Active use of the Bluetooth feature wastes significant amounts of phone battery. When using EarPods the battery life is not sucked dry because the Bluetooth function is not needed.

Everyone should reconsider buying AirPods because they will find that the Bluetooth upgrade can kill their phone battery faster. Since customers receive EarPods with every iPhone purchase, nobody needs wireless earbuds that cause battery life issues and cost too much.
