Apple has just released a set of catchy new TV commercials featuring the new Apple AirPods.
One of the things that people worried about most with Apple’s new earphones was them not sitting in the ear very well because they are wireless and naturally appear like they might fall out of the ear when you tilt your head.
That could be the reason why Apple decided to feature people dancing wearing the new AirPods—and not just dancing with feet firmly on the floor but rather defying gravity almost always and standing on the side of cars, walking on shop windows and propelling down buildings.

It would’ve been nice to fit more into the commercials that let people know about how cool these AirPods are going to be because there is much more to them than just the fact that they sit in the ears without any wires connecting them. Some of the features you need to know about are when you take the AirPod out of the ear, the song automatically pauses without you pressing anything on the AirPod itself or the phone. Additionally, placing the AirPod back in the ear resumes the music you were listening to automatically. You also get to active Siri—your personal voice assistant by Apple–just by double-tapping on them. Once Siri is activated, you can ask her to do things like turn up the volume.
Most people don’t enjoy talking to phones in public and often resort to doing much more challenging things like texting at times when it isn’t ideal, but at least Siri gives you a chance to adjust things like the volume without having to take your iPhone out of your pocket while you are walking (if nobody is around.)
