³Testing conducted by Apple in August 2016 using preproduction AirPods units and software paired with preproduction iPhone 7 units and software.
The playlist consisted of 358 unique audio tracks purchased from the iTunes Store (256-Kbps AAC encoding).
Volume was set to 50%. Testing consisted of full AirPods battery discharge while playing audio until the first AirPod stopped playback.
The drained AirPods were charged for 30 minutes, then audio playback was continued until the first AirPod stopped playback. This cycle was repeated until both the AirPods and the Charging Case were fully discharged.
Battery life depends on device settings, usage, and many other factors.
