Make multimedia consumption, calls and conferences a high-quality experience with Apple AirPods. This second generation model includes the Apple H1 chip, which introduces a number of improvements over the older generation. The range and wireless connection are better, the game delay is reduced and calls are connected faster. The "Hey, Siri" function makes operation easier.
If you love the EarPods, you will love the sound of these AirPods. Instrumentals are smoothed with soft and pleasant warmth, the bass is rich and full, and the midrange and treble are clear. And because these earphones sit gently on your ears, they stay comfortable for long hours while minimizing the intrusion of unwanted ambient noise.

Opt for the AirPods Pro if you want more frills. This model offers all the good features of the original AirPods in combination with a number of upgrades that outperform the older models. They come with soft and flexible earplugs that not only provide a secure and comfortable fit, but also provide a better seal, resulting in improved sound reproduction, bass reproduction and noise suppression.
From sound performance to noise cancellation, the AirPods Pro do everything and do it well. The sound comes with melodic and punchy bass and fine details, while unwanted background noise can be easily dampened with effective noise cancellation. They are actually in the same league with premium options from Sony, Bose and Sennheiser.

If you're looking for a great, budget-friendly tablet for productivity, learning, and entertainment, we recommend the latest model of the standard iPad. This model has improved support for Apple Pencil and is compatible with the smart keyboard (accessories sold separately). This makes the tablet a powerful portable workstation and, in combination with the new iPadOS, enables convenient operation at the desktop level.
The iPad 10.2 has the A10 Fusion processor with an embedded M10 co-processor and 3 GB RAM. This combination may not match the hideous hardware of the iPad Pro, but it does the job smoothly. Surfing the Internet, watching movies, playing games and getting in and out of apps are no problem. The overall experience is enhanced by the tablet's larger screen, which provides additional space for multitasking and other activities.

The iPad Air is the ultimate compromise between the entry-level iPad and the more powerful but more expensive iPad Pro. The iPad Air is not a normal tablet, but works with both the Apple Pencil and the Smart Keyboard (both sold separately) to cover the work faster and more efficiently. This means that you can do writing jobs and do some creative projects like sketching.
In terms of performance, the iPad Air turned out to be fast and seamless. All thanks to the A12 Bionic processor, which allows you to run numerous apps without sweat multitasking and zip. Other features you'll love are the fantastic LCD screen, which displays razor-sharp details and rich colors, as well as small touches on the user interface such as the split view, which makes working on the tablet more comfortable.

The latest MacBook Air offers the sleek build quality and aesthetics that the MacBook line is known for. However, what makes it different from the older model are the improvements made under the hood. One of these improvements is the screen. Apple's True Tone technology ensures that images appear more natural and with more accurate colors.
In addition, there is the tenth generation dual-core Intel Core i3 processor. This chipset has 8 GB of RAM and a fast solid-state drive (SSD) and enables the laptop to perform reliably in everyday computing tasks such as word processing, internet surfing, video streaming and PhotoShop. There is a slight delay when multiple browser tabs, applications, and programs are open at the same time, but not enough to slow you down significantly.
