AirPods Max wireless headphones from Apple are ready for pre-order. The high-fidelity, over-ear headphones come in five colors and arrive starting on December 15. AirPods Max seeks to deliver the "ultimate personal listening experience" along with the easy setup and convenience that in-ear AirPods are known for. Advanced software offers a variety of features thanks to computational audio.
While the AirPower charging mat never came to fruition, Apple has another option coming before the end of the year. The MagSafe Duo charger was first revealed at the iPhone 12 product launch. Production units have already made their way to reviewers. Apple has not officially discussed a release date for the MagSafe Duo, but at one Apple Authorized Reseller it can already be ordered.
Some AirPods Pro owners have had issues with crackling, static, or noise cancellation while listening to their earphones. Firmware version 2B588, which was rolled out in November seems to be the culprit behind some of these problems. Apple has since released updates for the AirPods Pro, with the latest firmware version 2D15. It's easy to check what firmware is installed on your AirPods.
All iPhones since the iPhone 8, including all of the iPhone X and 11 models, are capable of wireless charging. This feature, while by no means a necessity, is certainly a convenience - with a wireless charging pad on your bedside table you simply put your iPhone down on it, letting you avoid searching for your lightning cable which has probably fallen to the floor.
Navigate to Settings > Bluetooth to check if your device is connected to your iPhone. If it says "Not Connected" next to the name of the device then you must try and connect that device. Make sure that the device you're trying to connect is on and in range of your iPhone, then tap the name of the device in the "My Devices" section to try and connect.
