Apple’s wireless ear buds can be used as standalone devices, or paired with the Apple Watch, but many users have been disappointed with the latter’s lack of connectivity.
Now Apple is addressing the complaints by offering a wireless ear bud with built-in Bluetooth.
The Apple Wireless Earbuds are Bluetooth earbuddy headphones that can be worn as standalone accessories.
These buds feature a sleek black aluminum frame with an ear-cup holder and a single microphone, as well as an 8mm speaker in the ear canal.
The earbude itself is a plastic case with a flat metal band.
A small speaker in each earcup is used to play music.
The buds also feature a built-ins Bluetooth connection, so they can work with the iPhone or Apple Watch.
However, there are drawbacks to these earbuses.
For one, the Apple Wireless earbudes don’t come with a built in mic.
You need to download a separate app to listen to the iPhone’s audio.
This can take a few minutes to download, so the Apple buds are not suitable for those with limited battery life.
The other drawback is that Apple doesn’t support Bluetooth 3.0, which means that the Apple wireless buds will only work with Apple Watch and Apple TV.
Apple says the buds are compatible with “a variety of devices including phones, tablets, smartwatches, and cameras.”
The Apple wireless headphone buds also don’t work with iOS 8, which is a huge departure from the standard earbunny.
The company is promising a firmware update for iOS 9, but the official announcement of this update hasn’t been announced.
For now, the company is focusing on releasing the Apple iPhone 5S and Apple Watch Series 4 with Bluetooth headphones.
This will be the first time that the buds will be compatible with iOS 9.
In addition to the new Bluetooth earband, Apple is also introducing a new Bluetooth Earpad accessory, the Bluetooth Earplug, which includes a microphone and a power adapter for use with iOS devices.
The Earplug is available in silver and black.
