Last week, Apple announced AirPods 2, the second-generation of their ubiquitous wireless headphones, with their anticipated Wireless Charging Case.
For Canadians that placed pre-orders, they have shipped already and are destined to arrive either this week (or by April 1 in our case to B.C.), according to email notifications from Apple this morning. AirPods 2 are set to arrive in Apple Stores this week according to Apple.
AirPods 2 are powered by Apple’s new H1 chip, with faster switching between devices and new always on “Hey Siri”, to go with increased talk time and now Bluetooth 5.0. Here’s a list of all the changes with AirPods 2 compared to the original AirPods.
AirPods 2 with the regular charging case cost $219 CAD, the same as before. If you want AirPods 2 with the new Wireless Charging Case, it’s $269, while a standalone Wireless Charging Case retails for $99 in Canada.
Did you order AirPods 2 from Apple? With or without the Wireless Charging Case?
Update: UPS tracking shows our AirPods are set to arrive on Wednesday, March 27th, an earlier date compared to Apple’s buffer of April 1 delivery.
