Many of us expected the third generation of AirPods to launch at Apple’s September “California Streaming” event; however, they were released this month with the MacBooks. The AirPods haven’t had an upgrade in two years. The latest version sports a much shorter stem and improved touch capabilities by including a new sensor. In addition, these AirPods will include Spatial Audio support, which Apple developed with Dolby Atmos to deliver a greater music quality. 

Back in May, Apple’s vice president of Apple Music and Beats, Oliver Schusser, said: “Apple Music is making its biggest advancement ever in sound quality. Listening to a song in Dolby Atmos is like magic. The music comes from all around you and sounds incredible. Now we are bringing this truly innovative and immersive experience to our listeners with music from their favorite artists like J Balvin, Gustavo Dudamel, Ariana Grande, Maroon 5, Kacey Musgraves, The Weeknd, and so many more. Subscribers will also be able to listen to their music in the highest audio quality with Lossless Audio. Apple Music as we know it is about to change forever.”

HomePod Mini

Apple has released the HomePod mini in three new colours: yellow, orange and blue. It will be released in November and will retail at US$99.
