    Handy little tip I didn’t see in the vid: to tweak volume (and be specific) you can say “hey Siri turn volume up/down” & “hey Siri change volume to x%”

          Please please answer..what is difference between active noise cancellation & transperancy mood.

            transparency mode lets ambient noise in so you could hear people talking around you and such as well as what you are listening to in the buds. Noise cancellation silences outside noise such that you only hear what is coming through the ear buds. So say you're on a plane. In transparency mode you would hear your music as well as the faint noise of the plane engines and the flight attendant speaking to you. In noise cancelling, you'd only hear your music, no plane sounds or people talking.

                Lol tips and tricks? Please .......this is click bait.... any one that has AirPods pro have more then likely read or figured out every thing here either for the tool tip that pops up when you first connect them to your iPhone or from using previous gen AirPods.

                      Martin ivanitskiy you just need to have iOS 13 downloaded to have all the features that come with the pro’s. It will work with an iPhone 6.

                    I’ve had them for 2 days only.. But damn they are amazing! The last year I’ve become very happy with Apple. I use the Xs and thinking of buying the watch as well now.

                    Andrew, thanks for the review and honest opinion. I do not and have never owned AirPods . I’m one of those folks that just can’t find a good fit for the earphone without a seal cup thingy. But finally Apple has released a product worth considering. However, I have the Bose QC30 Bluetooth noise cancelling headphones and have been very happy with them for a few years. Now that Apple has a product that can compete with a product like Bose and others, can you put a review or comparison of the AirPods Pro with other pod type headphones out there? I love the Apple landscape and am Apple centric in my personal convenience things, but I am also well entrenched in the Bose Lifestyle products as well. Thanks for your work and the things you and AppleInsider bring into visibility! -Bud

                          Kevin PAZ yes it would technically work but the sound quality is worse and there is a major discomfort. But in my experience I feel that the ear-tips are very good!

                        Instead of pulling on the ear attachments just a slight twist will cause them to pop off.

                            I hate the loud screech when you go to push them back into your ear due to covering the transparency mic and it gives loud feedback! Can’t grip them to get out of the case is hard also.

                                      You can use a reg one but just a heads up you can use that cable to us usbc-Pd and quick charge an iPhone 50% in 30 mins with a usbc-Pd Charger. This cable is a little more expensive than a reg one.

                                                Why is no one talking about the fact that there's no VOLUME control?!

                                                  I don’t find myself needing to change the volume constantly anyway. I’ve gotten used to recognising my environments & telling Siri which volume level to set the Airpods at before entering the environment. For eg. Gym’s ideal volume is 88%....They become ‘pre-sets’ over time that you don’t need change much, if at all.

                                                  @DCM I know right like these people do NO physical activities all day so they might aswell take 5 seconds to reach into their pocket and turn up/down the volume. Like, it's so simple people!

                                                Would be nice to have a security lock on similar to activation lock that way if it gets lost no one else can use it.

                                                    Why would you leave them out??? You’re more likely to lose the earbuds
