Apple AirPods Review – true wireless done right

2016 hasn’t been much of a year for Apple. The company’s biggest product announcement was the new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar – which reviews are calling it more of a gimmick with inconsistent battery performance. Its long awaited iPhone update was a similar looking iPhone 7 with incremental improvements.
