“Should I buy AirPods in 2020 or should I wait?” is a question we are hearing as people are wondering what’s next from Apple, and what will happen this year. There are a lot of reasons to buy the AirPods today, even if you already own the first-gen AirPods, but there are some good reasons to wait — including for the 2020 AirPods.
Yes, some buyers will be fine with upgrading to just the wireless case, but if you bought your AirPods when the first model went on sale, this is a great time to upgrade. AirPods are $159 with the normal case and $199 with the wireless charging case. You can buy the wireless charging AirPod case for $79 as a standalone upgrade for AirPods 2 or the original AirPods. We’re seeing AirPods deals that cut the price down to $129.00 at Amazon and $139 at B&H Photo.
Are the AirPods worth buying? Yes, the new AirPods last longer, let you use Siri without touching an AirPod and connect faster thanks to the new H1 chip. Here are the reasons to buy the AirPods;
- Buy for Hey Siri Hands-Free
- Buy for Better AirPods Battery Life
- Buy for Faster Switching and Better Connectivity
- Buy for Wireless Charging
- Buy if You Game With AirPods
Here are a few reasons to wait;
- Consider AirPods Pro
- Wait for Bigger AirPods Deals
The AirPods 3 rumors are across the board right now, so it still feels early to wait for the new AirPods. You can hang on if you already have a good set of earbuds, but for many users, it’s worth buying now.
If you’re looking for truly wireless earbuds, the AirPods are at the top of the list and for a good reason. The current generation is one of the best wireless earbud experience on the iPhone or iPad.
Here’s a closer look at the reasons you should buy AirPods right now, and why you might want to wait before you upgrade.
- Automatically on, automatically connected
- Easy setup for all your Apple devices
- Quick access to Siri by saying “Hey Siri”
- Double-tap to play or skip forward
