Apple has announced the third-generation AirPods, but the second-generation earbuds remain in stock. Some may still prefer them if the fit is similar to Apple's EarPods. Walmart is offering the older-generation AirPods at $89, which is $70 less than their regular price and $10 less than last Black Friday. Sign in with your Walmart account to make a purchase. We expect these to sell quickly. Although Amazon currently doesn't match the deal, it will soon if the AirPods are available in stock.
AirPods, Apple's wireless earbuds, are a new category that has become very popular since their debut. Many people love them because they are easy to pair with and switch between Apple devices. The setup is quick and easy. Your iOS device will automatically recognize your earbuds once you open the case. Audio playback will then switch depending on the device you are using. This means that you can easily switch between listening to music on your MacBook and taking a phone call on your iPhone.
The AirPods 2nd-gen have an identical design to Apple's EarPods. They also have decent sound quality. They have a good range of wireless capabilities and a long battery life. You can use them for about five hours before you need to recharge. These buds, even though they are not the latest AirPods, are an excellent deal at $89 off. Apple's new AirPods are worth the extra money if you're willing spend more. They have a better fit, improved audio quality, and a longer lasting battery life.
