Tera on AirPods 2 and why she plans to wait it out:
Apple stuffs so much technology into AirPods that battery life cycle does not match a Mac, iPhone, or iPad. The new models cannot improve on what is already a negative. AirPods 2 have optical sensors and motion accelerometers to handle microphones and phone calls and Siri.
What’s not to like?
My original AirPods are not quite two years old. Instead of playing music for four hours at a time, the best I can get is about an hour on a complete recharge… Mine are not dead. Yet. But they’re dead to me. But only because the battery does not last very long after less than two years of usage.
