Quick Answer: What’s The Difference Between 1st And 2nd Gen AirPods?

What is the difference between 1st and 2nd generation AirPods?

AirPods 2 uses Apple’s new H1 chip, whereas the original has a W1 chip.

Both these allow the AirPods to pair seamlessly with Apple devices, but Apple claims AirPods 2 can connect up to 1.5 times faster, provide a more stable wireless connection, and switch between active devices up to twice as fast.

How can you tell the difference between AirPods 1 and Airpods 2?

Yes, laid side-by-side there’s no way to tell the AirPods 2 apart from their predecessor. There is a new wireless charging case that’s fractionally heavier (40 g), but that is an upgrade option for AirPods 2 and can be purchased separately for AirPods owners – more on that later.

How do I know if my AirPods are Gen 1 or 2?

Look in Settings

  • Go to Settings > General > About.
