    Apple Music’s ‘automatic pause when you press play on another device’ is still a hit-or-miss for me; but, in theory, the same process could potentially help iOS, macOS, and tvOS figure out when to switch out your AirPods to the device (iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV) currently being used to play music. That’ll make AirPods the perfect go-to pair of wireless earbuds for anyone heavily invested into Apple’s ecosystem.

    I just discovered improved range using the AirPods and iPhone 8 Plus. I'm thinking this is due to the glass back. I walked away waaaay too far and the music was still playing. ~ 2 rooms across. My iPhone 7 can't do that previously. I assume it'll be the same with 8 and X.

    Is this the new version already? The one that has the LED indicator outside the case and supports wireless charging?

    Not yet, that release will coincide with the AirPower Mat (or earlier).

    2017 - iMac Pro
    2018 - AirPower and HomePod + Qi Charging case for AirPods.

    Is the Qi charging case confirmed as sold separately? Will not come with a pair?

    Sold my Jaybird X2 a couple of month ago to find a new pair of buds. Lazada’s Airpods price finally hits the spot. Was able to get it at 7450 php, then still got a 300 refund so more or less, got one at 7kphp. Not bad i guess...
