Apple Shares New AirPods Ad Highlighting Wireless Charging

Apple today shared a new AirPods ad called "Bounce," which is meant to highlight the ‌AirPods‌ Wireless Charging Case that launched in March alongside the second-generation ‌AirPods‌.

In the spot, which was shot in black and white, a bored man pulls his ‌AirPods‌ off of their wireless charging pad (an Apple exclusive Belkin model) before he pops outside and begins bouncing over normal street items that are inexplicably bouncy like a trampoline. The song "I Learnt Some Jazz Today" plays while he runs through town.


Apple has shared ‌AirPods‌ ads in the past, but this is the first ad that is specifically aimed at highlighting the wireless charging capabilities of the ‌AirPods‌.

Apple sells the AirPods 2 for $199 with a Wireless Charging Case included, which is able to charge on any Qi-based wireless charging mat. It's also available on a standalone basis for $79.

Update: Apple has also shared another short ad highlighting the Screen Time feature on iPhone.

I think it's dumb.


But of course! How can it not be? This is MacRoumos community where everything should be disliked!

What’s the point of wireless charging if it’s sitting on your dresser and the plug reaches it anyway?

The failure of AirPower to come to market has made the wireless charging AirPods unnecessary.


Because who wants to fiddle with annoying cables when you can just put it on the charger and not worry about finding a wire

I use my desk many times a day but I rarely spend much time at it. I used to wait until my battery was dead before I plugged it in, but with wireless charging the convenience allows me to take advantage of shorter charging periods throughout the day. It's easier to use, and more importantly, I use it.

This is barely confirmation of a few issues and it’s just as likely the Qi Charger itself has issues as the AirPods case having an issue.

If this were truly a design flaw, there would be way more backlash.

Nice ad. And to it's credit... all those trampolines would for real not budge the airpods out. I have obviously not tried, but hey, they stay firm in my ears through an Insanity workout. Can't imagine doing something more jumpy while having bluetooth ear buds in my ears.
