As expected, Apple has unveiled its new generation iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The new device has dumped widely-used humble headphone jack in favor of lightening-connected and wireless audio. Insteadly, a first-ever pair of Bluetooth headphones – AirPods was released, which arouses heated discussions. Hence, it is necessary for you to know some detailed information about how to use iPhone 7 AirPods.
Why did Apple change its EarPods?
On the one hand, the 3.5mm connector requires an internal-to-analogue converter (DAC) that not only can limit sound quality but also takes up precious space inside the iPhone. On the other hand, it is unrealistic for smartphone manufactures to put the high-quality DAC at a top priority with margins to take account into. Thus, it deserves to win our praises that Apple makes such a bold yet unrelenting decision to push the industry toward wireless industry. Obviously, what Apple has done shows great ambitions to exert an implicit control on its users and it will for sure bring great changes to user experience.
How to connect AirPods to iPhone 7 and other Apple devices

As for making phone calls, a voice accelerometer detects vibrations and recognizes when you are speaking with a beam-forming focused on your voice and filtering out external noise. What’s more, if you want to activate your favorite personal assistant – Siri, just double-tap either AirPod without the necessity to take your iPhone 7 out of your pocket.
How to charge the AirPods
AirPods deliver an industry – leading 5 hours battery life on one charge, which is quite impressive for wireless headphones. Besides, AirPods match a magic charging box at the bottom of which there lies a lightning port for charging.
