    Hi All,

    I’m on my second pair of Airpod series 1, most of the time I do love them, however the magic always fades when I want to switch between my iPhone and iPad and it just doesn’t happen (either takes 15-20 seconds, and will fail from to time).

    So to those with series 2, hoping you can share any experiences you have switching between iOS devices. Especially if this was one of your complaints with series 1.

    Thanks in advance for any help - Steve

    Yes Steve, the switching between Apple devices with the Airpods 2nd generation and H1 chip is much faster. I would estimate 95% faster compared to my Airpods 1st generation (2+ years old) with the W1 chip.

    I concur with @Spencerdl that AirPods 2 are definitely faster compared to 1 gen AirPods.

    Thank you for the replies, looks like I’m off to the Apple Store for a re-fresh, these AirPods have served me well since December 2016, with both of the ear pieces been replaced under warranty by Apple early into the second year due to battery life issues (and yes I use them for 4+ hours per day, so would have expected them to have been having issues, but Apple replaced them anyway).

    I agree. My Airpods (1st Gen) served me well for a little over two years (purchased Jan 2017) and 4+ hours daily, I definitely welcome the 2 Gen with open arms and ears...LOL
