AirPods 2! The case now comes with Wireless Charging!
https://www.apple.com/sg/shop/select-airpods





AirPods users can buy just the AirPods Wireless Charging Case itself too for S$119. Yikes!

I think cause now Apple is ‘applying’ the licence with IMDA to sell them. So once it’s approved, they will start selling.

Guess now it is just the announcement first.

I see. Thanks for the info.

US, HK, JP, etc. all got stocks already. I thought SG OOS already. Fingers crossed for the launch in Singapore.

Faster connect (useless), longer battery (also useless)

Same battery life. Just improve talk time

https://www.tomsguide.com/us/airpods...ews-29677.html

Sadly no black option and no new design for battery life.

Shall skip and wait for new revision.

As a fan of matte black, thumbs down lol. But honestly, the price is just ridiculous. I know the software integration of AirPods and iPhone/Apple Watch are great but $300 really?

Anyone knows if thereís any difference between SG & Japan art?

Japan is approximately 10% cheaper.
