So Apple just quietly released the very long awaited wirelessly charging AirPods.

On the really bright side, we don't have to buy a whole new set of AirPods to get wireless charging, just buy the new case. I'm not going to since I don't have anything that is Qi. I should note, those are the Veteran & Military pricing on the screenshot.

I ordered my pair this morning. Been waiting for what seems forever for this update. I am seeing a totally different price for all 3 though. I saw $199/$159/$79.

Instant buy for me with the wireless charging.

Only product I 100% use every day.

So, iPod touch tomorrow, new MacBook Friday?

This (three days in a row of Apple product announcements) never would have happened when Steve was alive!

I was really hoping for AirPower, but I guess that’s pushed back again.

AppleInsider is saying launching "possibly" in late March. Perhaps unveiled finally Monday? They are pricy but I could easily be in the market for 2 right off the bat to charge iPhone, Watch, and AirPods at the same time.

It’s weird because the image that was on the AirPods page for months with AirPower showed three devices and now the new image for AirPower is only showing two devices. That would make it a lot less useful to me.

Doesn’t really seem like something cool enough to hold for a special event (on a streaming service). Also seems to make no business sense to hold it a week when sales would surely have been a lot higher if it had been released with the new air pods and able to be ordered together.

I’m guessing we don’t see it until WWDC or September.

I got my AirPods on Wednesday and absolutely love them buuuuuut........they kinda fit loose in my ears, which is what I was afraid of. I feel like I have weird ears/ear canals. The right fit better then the left but even just walking through the grocery store, I felt like i was adjusting them every couple minutes. I contemplated sending them back but I did some research. Long story short, I found a thread on MacRumors from a couple years ago with a guy using a 3M Nexcare Waterproof Grip Tape.

I got mine in the mail today via Amazon and tried a couple different configurations for each ear and I'll be honest, they fit sooooo much better. They have no issue fitting in the case either.

I just wanted to throw this in here incase anyone has had a similar issue. I almost gave up on mine immediately but these will make them a daily fixture for me now.

Edit: This is the OPs picture from MacRumor. Mine look similar.
