FAQ: Tips, Tricks and Facts to Know About Your AirPods or AirPods Pro By Mike Peterson Apple's AirPods are wildly popular wireless headphones. That means that there's a good chance you already own them or are possibly thinking about buying them. But while they're pretty simple to use, you may still have questions about certain aspects of the AirPods experience. Here are some frequently asked AirPods questions that you should know the answer to. How Are AirPods Different Than Other Wireless Headphones? AirPods are Bluetooth wireless headphones. But they're actually a bit different than most options on the market — and may be a better choice for Apple users. That's because AirPods have proprietary Apple wireless tech inside of them, which offers nearly instant and seamless pairing. Once paired, users can also take advantage of options like hands-free Hey Siri and strong wireless performance. What's the Difference Between AirPods and AirPods Pro? Apple currently has two versions of its popular wireless headphones available: AirPods and AirPods Pro. AirPods are the cheaper of the two. They o' er great sound quality and a fi t that's similar to old Apple EarPods. AirPods Pro, on the other hand, feature interchangeable silicone ear tips, increased water resistance and Active Noise Cancelation. Can I Charge AirPods with a High-Wattage Charger? AirPods and AirPods Pro can be charged via Lighting cable or wirelessly (although you'll need to have the Qi- compatible charging case for standard AirPods). That's pretty simple, but some users may be wondering about more powerful or higher-wattage chargers. Higher-wattage chargers can put a strain on your AirPods battery over time, so lower- wattage ones like Apple's 5W charger are probably best. With that being said, you can use any charger — as long as it's a well-made one from a reputable company. How Do You Know If AirPods Have Water Damage? AirPods and AirPods Pro have varying levels of water resistance. But that doesn't mean they're waterproof. Images courtesy of
