New AirPods this Christmas? So we can restore the old ones and remove them from our Apple ID to sell or give them away

With the arrival of Christmas, many of us consider getting new AirPods, either for ourselves or as a gift for someone else. Now, with the 25th already behind us, it is quite possible that let’s have two pairs of AirPodsso it is important to be clear about how to restore the old ones and remove them from our Apple ID in order to sell or give them away.

Keep in mind that, like all Apple products, AirPods are linked to our Apple ID and our iPhone, so we can’t just delete them from our phone and stop using them. Let’s review, then, how to restore the AirPods to leave them to the factory settings and, later, how to unlink them from our Apple ID.

Two key steps before you stop using AirPods

Let’s start with the restoration, which in the case of AirPods is really simple. Whether we’re talking about AirPods Pro or AirPods 3, the steps are always the same. Specifically these:

  1. We put the AirPods in the charging case and close the lid.
  2. We wait 30 seconds.
  3. We open the lid of the case.
  4. On our iPhone or iPad we enter Settings > bluetooth and, if they appear, we press the “i” next to our AirPods and we touch on skip device.
  5. Continuing with the lid open, we keep pressing the rear button of the case until the LED indicator blinks red and then starts blinking white.
  6. We release and close the case.

With this we will have unlinked the AirPods from our iPhone and we will also have restored them to the factory settings. It might seem enough, but there are a couple more details to take into account. If we use more than one Apple device, it is a good idea that we enter Settings > bluetooth too and let’s verify that the AirPods have disappeared. If they are still there, press the “i” and touch on skip device.

The other detail is that the AirPods are registered in our Apple ID. It’s not a Bluetooth connection issue, it’s a device ownership issue. Thus, to be able to give them away or sell them calmly, we have to remove them from the account. The steps to follow are those:

  1. We open the app Seek on our iPhone or iPad.
  2. We enter the tab Devices.
  3. We touch the AirPods that interest us.
  4. Click on delete this device.

The best thing, to avoid that the new owner has to repeat the steps that we have indicated before, is that Let’s do this while we have the AirPods in the iPhone’s bluetooth radius. If it were not possible, as we say, restoring the AirPods again after we have carried it out should be enough.

Once we have removed the AirPods from our Apple ID and from our iPhone, we can now sell or give them away with complete peace of mind. We will do it with AirPods completely restored to their factory state and without any of the settings and preferences that we would have established in them. perfect for that a happy new owner enjoys them as we already did.

Apple explains why only USB-C AirPods Pro support lossless audio with Vision Pro

Apple is today marketing a revision of the AirPods Pro which has the particularity of having a USB-C port on the charging case. But that’s not the only change: the headphones also support lossless audio with the Apple Vision Pro headset.

Why can’t the second generation AirPods Pro with the Lightning Charging Case also support lossless audio with the Vision Pro? Brian Tong did an interview with two Apple executives to get the answer. Ron Huang, Apple’s vice president of sensors and connectivity, gives the answer.

Ron Huang says the H2 chip in AirPods Pro with the USB-C port supports the 5GHz wireless frequency band for ultra-low latency and less interference, while the H2 chip in AirPods Pro with the Lightning port is limited to the 2.4 GHz band. Apple says it’s this support for the 5GHz band that allows the updated AirPods Pro to support lossless audio with the Vision Pro.

The Apple Vision Pro headset will be available in early 2024, first in the United States. The price will be $3,499. Apple has already planned marketing in other countries, but this will happen later at a price that is currently unknown in euros.

It would (already) be a hit for the iPhone 15 Pro Max, and a small disappointment for the iPhone 15 Pro

After just a few days of pre-orders, the lively Ming Chi Kuo can already give the main trends in iPhone sales for the current and coming quarter. For the analyst, there are no doubts: the new iPhone 15/15 Pro range is a huge success, and Apple should distribute 80 million copies until the end of the year compared to 76 million for the iPhone 14/14 Pro range. Surprisingly, the 15 Pro Max model is popular with buyers, and Kuo estimates that Apple will sell 35 million of this model (Q3 and Q4), or 7 million more 15 Pro Max compared to sales of the 14 Pro. Max over the same period.

On the other hand, sales would be a little below expectations for the two most “standard” models, namely the iPhone 15 and the iPhone 15 Pro. Kuo does not give figures, but specifies that without a drop in prices (via occasional promotions for example), the volume of these sales should not change much in a few months. The surprise is undoubtedly on the side of the iPhone 15 Plus, which would sell beyond the stock capacities initially planned by Apple. The factories will have to operate more vigorously…
