MacRumors Giveaway: Win Custom-Painted AirPods From BlackPods

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

For this week’s giveaway, we’ve once again teamed up with BlackPods to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a AirPods that have been custom-painted in black or space gray. We’ve partnered with BlackPods to give away several sets of AirPods, and they’re always our most popular giveaways.

If you haven’t come across BlackPods before, the company takes a regular set of boring white AirPods and then paints them in one of three sleek, unique shades of black or gray using a proprietary painting system.


BlackPods uses a multi-phase painting process for a high-quality coating of paint that’s not going to chip, fade, scuff, or otherwise get damaged from regular usage. Each set of BlackPods is completed by hand and given a rigorous inspection to ensure a flawless finish.


When BlackPods first launched, there were two colors — the BlackPods Classic with a high-gloss finish and the BlackPods Stealth, with a matte satin finish — but BlackPods this year introduced a stylish new Space Gray shade that has an iPhone-style metallic finish.


BlackPods cost $279 for the original high gloss finish or $299 for matte black or space gray, which is a $120+ premium over standard AirPods, but it’s one of the only ways to get AirPods in a darker shade that better matches Apple’s Space Gray iPhones.


If you already have AirPods, BlackPods has a service for the painting process alone. You can send in your AirPods and BlackPods will paint them for you. It takes about 10 days and it costs $99 to $119, with that price covering the cost of both the AirPods and the AirPods Charging Case.

BlackPods are repainted AirPods, so the full AirPods functionality remains intact, with a W1 chip for simple pairing, a long battery life, a built-in accelerometer for ear detection, iCloud support for device switching, and gesture support.


We have one set of BlackPods to give away to a MacRumors reader, with the winner able to choose a Stealth, Classic, or Space gray finish. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach winners and send prizes. You can earn additional entries by subscribing to our weekly newsletter, subscribing to our YouTube channel, following us on Twitter, or visiting the MacRumors Facebook page.

Due to the complexities of international laws regarding giveaways, only U.S. residents who are 18 years or older and Canadian residents (excluding Quebec) who have reached the age of majority in their province or territory are eligible to enter. To offer feedback or get more information on the giveaway restrictions, please refer to our Site Feedback section, as that is where discussion of the rules will be redirected.

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Huawei has unveiled what look to be the most expensive AirPod ripoffs yet, and they’re called ‘FreeBuds.’ These very familiar-looking, fully-wireless Bluetooth headphones only got a tiny mention in addition to the P20’s announcement, but Huawei had some units for event attendees to try on.

 

The Verge got some ears-on time with the FreeBuds and noted that they’re comfortable and fit well, but Huawei didn’t allow any listening to be done.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win a BentoStack Accessory Organizer Equipped With AirPods and Apple Pencil

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

For this week’s giveaway we’ve teamed up with Function 101 to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a handy BentoStack organizer for all of your Apple accessories, which will come equipped with AirPods, an Apple Pencil, and two Apple Watch bands.

The BentoStack, priced at $50, started out as a highly successful Indiegogo project, but it’s now available to anyone. Modeled after traditional Bento boxes that are popular as lunch containers in Japan, the multi-layered BentoStack is designed to hold and organize a variety of accessories. The BentoStack comes in three colors — Space Gray, Silver, and Rose Gold — and has a soft, smooth texture.


Each BentoStack consists of four storage compartments, a lid, and a silicone strap to hold it all together. The top lid (that can also double as a stand) holds an Apple Pencil or a standard pen, while the top compartment can hold an AirPods case, wound up iPhone cables, or similarly sized items.


A second lid in the middle can hold your Apple Watch bands, and the bottom compartment, which is the deepest, is able to hold a MacBook Pro-sized charger along with additional cables and accessories. For countries with larger MacBook plugs, there’s also a BentoStack XL that’s just a bit deeper.


Dividers in both of the two larger compartments allow you to arrange the BentoStack’s interior to meet your needs, and with these removable dividers, it can accommodate accessories in many sizes.


I reviewed the BentoStack back in November, and I was impressed with its capacity. I was able to fit three Apple Watch bands, an Apple Watch, a MacBook Pro power adapter, a USB-C cable, two regular-sized Lightning cables, a small Lightning cable, and an Apple Pencil.


Once filled up, the BentoStack fits all together in one neat little bundle, which you can leave on your desk or take with you anywhere. When you need to use it on the go, you can unpack whichever layers you need for a portable desk organization system. If you want to just take a single section of the BentoStack with you, you can do that too, as Function 101 includes an extra small silicone strap.


For all of our readers, we’ve got a special discount code that will discount the BentoStack by 40 percent. Just enter the promo code MacRumors40 when checking out on the Function website. That drops the price of the BentoStack from $50 to $30, with $10 shipping. The deal will be available through Thursday, March 22.

We also have one fully loaded BentoStack to give away to a lucky MacRumors reader. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach winners and send prizes. You can earn additional entries by subscribing to our weekly newsletter, subscribing to our YouTube channel, following us on Twitter, or visiting the MacRumors Facebook page.

While we all wait for Apple to release its wireless charging-capable AirPods case, which is rumored to cost $ 70, there are several solutions out there offering pricey cases for your AirPods that could easily be replicated for under $ 20. However, what most “cases” (which go for $ 30 or more) are doing is simply gluing a wireless Qi adapter to the case, and using a cheap silicone case.

Barclays analyst report suggests ‘AirPods 2’ with better noise cancelling coming in early 2019

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Barclays has released its latest analyst report. The analysts, who have a mixed track record of accuracy, indicate continued iPhone 8 and iPhone X ‘weakness’ is being partly offset by continued sales of iPhone 7. Most interestingly, the report says to expect new AirPods in early 2019 with noise cancelling features.

Due to the small form factor of AirPod earbuds, noise cancelling is very unlikely to rival bigger cans with active noise cancellation like the Beats Studio 3. However, Barclays suggests that there will be design changes and improvements over the current AirPods.

Next-gen AirPods will likely include noise cancellation features

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

AirPods 2

A new research report from Barclays (via MacRumors) claims that Apple is hard at work on a next-gen pair of AirPods that will likely see the light of day sometime in 2019. Feature wise, the second iteration of AirPods will reportedly include noise cancellation features and the introduction of a new W2 chip. Incidentally, previous reports have suggested that the next iteration of AirPods will be water-resistant and will feature hands-free support for “Hey Siri.” As it stands now, AirPods users have to tap the headphones in order to call Siri into action.

While AirPods were initially scoffed at, the tiny accessory has proven to be quite a surprising success for Apple. Not only has demand for Apple’s advanced wireless earbuds remained strong since first launching in December of 2016, customer satisfaction is said to be in the 98% range.

In stark contrast, Apple’s recently released HomePod does not appear to be faring as well in the marketplace, with Barclays claiming that demand has been “underwhelming.” Arguably, that’s not much of a surprise given the HomePod’s relatively hefty $ 349 price point. While the HomePod may sound better than any other speaker in its price range, it’s not yet clear if everyday consumers actually care about premium sound quality when cheaper smart speaker alternatives exist. On a related note, a recent rumor claims that Apple is planning to release a more affordable version of the HomePod later this year.

As for Apple’s 2018 iPhone lineup, Barclays believes that Apple will release three brand new iPhone models this coming September, including a more affordable 6.1-inch device with an edgeless LCD display. If this sounds familiar, it’s because it aligns perfectly with previous reports from Ming-Chi Kuo, largely regarded as the most accurate Apple analyst in the business.
