If you're an Apple fan, AirPods are the indispensable wireless headphones. You know, when they're in your ears, the music stops when one is taken out, and when you pair them with your iPhone, they already work on your Mac, iPad, and iPod touch with the same Apple ID. However, if you're using it on another device, you'll need to manually reconnect it to your iPhone later.
When you play audio from your iPhone on these tiny, white earbuds, you'll pause the next time you play an audiobook, song, lecture, podcast, or other audio file or stream on the AirPods, it works immediately.
