Order TODAY 12/10 and ships 12/15. As of Dec. 12 AirPods Max are currently sold out until the end of March.
So here is a playlist where you can learn more about Apple’s Christmas surprise.
During Episode 5 of the Apple Guide Talks Podcast, there was some confusion about the ports on the AirPods Max. So, here’s what you need to know.
On the headphones is a lightning port (like what is found on your iPhone. In the box, you will find a lightning to USB-C cable which can be used for recharging your headphones.
When it comes time to connect the AirPods Max to your device the easiest way to do so is via Bluetooth. However, if you don’t have Bluetooth or maybe you prefer a wire you will need to purchase some adapters to go along with your expensive headphones. If you want to use the AirPods Max with a device featuring the old but reliable 3.5mm headphone jack you can pick up Apple’s Lightning to 3.5 mm Audio Cable for $35. If you want to plug into an iPhone that doesn’t have a 3.5mm headphone jack then you will need to get Apple’s Lighting to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter for $10 in addition to the previously mentioned Lightning to 3.5 mm Audio Cable.
Now there is another way you can do this and save a couple dollars. Get two of Apple’s Lighting to 3.5mm headphone jack adapters. Then get a cheap 3.5mm audio cable, from some where like Amazon or Best Buy, to bridge the gap between the two adapter. From there you can mix and match adapters and cables as needed.
THIS IS SO STUPID. If Apple would have just added USB-C to the headphones we would not have to daisy chain adapter. However, if this is a problem for you it may just be simpler to look elsewhere.
