CUPERTINO, CALIFORNIA — 19 October, 2021 —Apple today announced the third generation of AirPods featuring spatial audio, delivering advanced features and a magical experience in a new contoured design. By combining the power of the H1 chip with an Apple-designed acoustic system, the new AirPods use computational audio to deliver breakthrough sound with Adaptive EQ. Users can enjoy spatial audio featuring Dolby Atmos in Apple Music, movies and tv shows, along with dynamic head tracking, across Apple devices. The new AirPods are resistant to sweat and water, and feature a force sensor for easy and intuitive control of music and phone calls. The extended battery life enables up to six hours of listening time1 and up to 30 hours of total listening time with the convenient charging case. AirPods (3rd generation) join the world’s most popular family of headphones and are available to order starting today, and in stores beginning Tuesday, 26 October.
“AirPods forever changed wireless headphones with their groundbreaking design, incredible sound and magical experience,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “We are excited to introduce the next generation of AirPods, featuring unrivalled sound through Adaptive EQ and spatial audio with dynamic head tracking, along with seamless interaction between Apple devices — making the world’s best-selling headphones even better.”
All-New Design The new design of AirPods is lightweight and contoured, sitting at just the right angle for comfort and to direct audio into the ear. For a more subtle appearance, the stem is shorter than the previous generation and features the same intuitive force sensor as AirPods Pro for media control. The new AirPods are resistant to both sweat and water, with an IPX4 rating for both the earbuds and the charging case.2
Breakthrough Audio Features AirPods (3rd generation) build on the great sound quality that AirPods are known for, starting with a custom driver and a high-dynamic-range amplifier that together produce powerful bass with crisp, clean high frequencies. The microphone is covered by an acoustic mesh to help reduce the sound of wind, so the speaker’s voice comes across distinctly on calls. AirPods also feature AAC-ELD, a superior speech codec that offers full HD voice quality, providing clear, natural communication for FaceTime calls.
The new AirPods use computational audio to bring the breakthrough experiences that customers love on AirPods Pro and AirPods Max — like Adaptive EQ and spatial audio with dynamic head tracking — to even more people.
For an optimal listening experience with rich detail, the new AirPods feature Adaptive EQ that tunes sound in real time based on how AirPods fit in the user’s ear. An inward-facing microphone monitors for sound, and then Adaptive EQ, powered by computational audio, tunes the low and mid frequencies to account for what may be lost due to variances in fit.
Spatial audio creates a three-dimensional cinema-like experience, placing sound virtually anywhere in space, and with Dolby Atmos, AirPods have never sounded better. Users can also enjoy this multilevel experience with dynamic head tracking, so music, video and even Group FaceTime calls feel more immersive than ever before. Using advanced spatial audio algorithms, and by applying directional audio filters to subtly adjust the frequencies that each ear receives, the new AirPods can place sound all around the user.
Magical Experience With one-touch setup that automatically pairs AirPods with other Apple devices, users can effortlessly enjoy music throughout the day. Audio Sharing allows listeners to share the audio stream between two sets of AirPods, AirPods Pro or AirPods Max, while using iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Apple TV.
A new skin-detect sensor accurately discerns if AirPods are in the ear — versus in a pocket or on a table — and pauses playback when removed. To help with sound clarity, beamforming microphones block out ambient noise and focus on the user’s voice, while users can also enjoy a hands-free experience by simply saying “Hey Siri” for requests.
Longer Battery Life AirPods (3rd generation) offer an extra hour of battery life over the previous generations, with up to six hours of listening time and up to four hours of talk time. Just five minutes of charging provides about an hour of battery life, and with four additional charges in the case, users can get up to 30 hours of total listening time.3 AirPods are now also part of the MagSafe ecosystem for convenient wireless charging.
AirPods with iOS and iPadOS AirPods offer exceptional convenience and sound quality, and with iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, users can enjoy the following features: With spatial audio and dynamic head tracking, voices in a Group FaceTime call sound like they’re coming from the direction in which the person is positioned on the screen, making it seem as if everyone is in the same room.4 Announce Notifications allows Siri to read important time-sensitive notifications, including alerts from Messages, Reminders, Calendar and calls, as well as any third-party apps that adopt the API. AirPods are now part of the Find My network of hundreds of millions of iPhone, iPad and Mac computers around the world, offering proximity view in the Find My app and Lost Mode, as well as separation alerts and sounds. Apple and the Environment AirPods are designed with numerous materials and features to reduce their environmental impact, including the 100 per cent recycled rare earth elements used in all magnets. The case also uses 100 per cent recycled tin in the solder of the main logic board and 100 per cent recycled aluminium in the hinge. AirPods are also free of potentially harmful substances such as mercury, BFRs, PVC and beryllium. For energy efficiency, AirPods meet US Department of Energy requirements for battery charger systems. Apple’s Zero Waste program helps suppliers eliminate waste sent to landfill, and all final assembly supplier sites are transitioning to 100 per cent renewable energy for Apple production. In the packaging, 100 per cent of the virgin wood fibre comes from responsibly managed forests.
Today, Apple is carbon-neutral for global corporate operations, and by 2030, plans to have net-zero climate impact across the entire business, which includes manufacturing supply chains and all product life cycles. This means that every Apple device sold, from component manufacturing, assembly, transport, customer use, charging, all the way through recycling and material recovery, will be 100 per cent carbon-neutral.

2021.10.18 22:20 beattraxx Just fucking move on already

Can we please stop talking about this miserable and failed company and their shitty dying game already?
I've been a dick sucker for 14 fucking years and I realized that I'm not into it. 6 years to late but you learn from mistakes so just please start moving on and let this game die already.
We all had our great times and memories and seeing them doing one ridiculous bullshit thing after another gets fucking tired.
It was funny in the beginning, sad in the middle and now it's just annoying.
Let them die in their own bubble and move on.
There are plenty more games which are better.

2021.10.18 22:20 Aiedail89 Max lvls who crash at Corp are disgusting

I am so tired of them, my CL is 117 so I can't outdps them and everyday there is at least one who crashes me. I just want to chill there while watching a movie. I usually don't mind as it happens maybe once or twice a day and I just hop and be done with it but today it happened 6 times. Six. Twice by the same guy, almost three until he apparently dc'd and stopped playing. I am so tired of it. And before anyone says it: I know that the private instance is a thing but I don't have the money to buy membership for an alt account.

2021.10.18 22:20 Th3_Accountant Issues when joining a game with friends

I can join a game by myself and so can my friend, but when we try to join a casual match together we both get the message "connection failed after 4 attempts".
It happened yesterday for the first time. I read something about DDOS attacks today but I doubt that is the cause since we can join individually but not as a party.
Any reason what might be the cause?

2021.10.18 22:20 matsp888 Possible military surplus

Is there perhaps anyone who is able to identify the brand and model of one or more of these radios? The pictures are from catalogs by the Swedish mail order company Hobby-Förlaget in 1959 and 1960, but I suspect they might be military surplus.

2021.10.18 22:20 Slipped-up Does a townhouse with a Torrens Title have similar ongoing costs as Strata?

I’m a FBB and looking at a townhouse. The last few townhouses I have looked at have had strata. This current one has a Torrens Title. Is there a quarterly fee involved like there is for Strata? Are there any negatives with Torrens? My understanding with Torrens is that I would own the land and would not need approval from a body corporation to make any changes.
