AirPods Pro Review: Almost Perfect

Apple AirPods Pro Buds Charging
Justin Duino

I’ve reviewed a lot of truly wireless earbuds over the past year, and I’ve seen a lot of progress made in this particular niche. But the Apple AirPods Pro are on a whole different level—they completely obliterate anything else on the market.

I’m not talking about a small margin here either—AirPods Pro are significantly better than anything else I’ve tried for several reasons. From the active noise canceling to transparency mode, the vents on the sides, and the interchangeable tips, these are not only a big step up from AirPods, but game-changers in the entire category of truly wireless ‘buds.

The Case Is Still the Best in the Game

If you’ve seen AirPods, then you already have an idea of what the case is like. It’s the same basic thing, but a little shorter and a little wider (to accommodate the wider overall profile of each individual AirPod). Either way, it’s still just as pocketable as the original AirPods case.

And really, that’s one area where AirPods, in general, have always been better than the competition. Say what you will about the fit and feel of the ‘buds themselves, the size of the case has always been a winner. The same is true for the AirPods Pro.

Like with regular AirPods, the Pro will request to pair with your iOS device as soon as you pop open the case. Once paired with one device, they’ll also be paired with all the devices connected to your Apple ID, and you can easily switch between them in the Bluetooth menu. Easy peasy.

But you can also manually pair AirPods Pro with other, non-Apple devices (like Android) by long-pressing the button on the back of the case, then pairing as you usually would for your particular device. I’ve been using the AirPods Pro on the iPhone XR, iPad, and Google Pixel 4 XL, switching between them as necessary with absolutely no issues. It’s so nice to have one set of earbuds that seamlessly work across multiple devices.

But none of that is what makes Airpods Pro special. It’s not until you stuff these little white gadgets into your earholes that the real magic happens.

Next-Level Comfort

Once you get them inserted, it’s immediately noticeable how comfortable they are. If you’ve used AirPods (or even Apple’s wired earbuds), then you know how uncomfortable they can be—especially during extended use. The design isn’t great on those because they’re hard and not customizable, so unless they just happen to fit your ears perfectly, it’s a pretty lousy experience.

But the AirPods Pro change that (finally). They feature silicone tips, not unlike the ones that other manufacturers have been using since the dawn of time, so you can (mostly) customize your fit. I mean, there are only three different tips (small, medium, and large), but by golly, I bet one of them will fit your little (or big!) ear holes.

How to Take Better Photos with Your iPhone

iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro camera lenses.

Your iPhone takes great photos, but you can always improve them. For example, you can control the exposure, take more time to compose before you hit the shutter, and make better use of the tools available to you.

In fact, you could take a crash course in iPhoneography right now.

How to Launch and Use the iPhone Camera

You can use the shortcut in the bottom-right corner of the iOS Lock screen to launch the camera. Either press hard and release the icon (if you have an iPhone with 3D Touch) or swipe upward. You can also launch the camera via Control Center or ask Siri to launch it for you.

When the camera opens, you see all the available features at the top of the screen (as shown below).

The iOS Camera Features.

From left to right these are:

  • Flash: Choose between Auto, On, or Off.
  • Live Photos: Tap the yellow icon to capture Live Photos alongside your still shots. Live Photos capture a small amount of video and audio when you press the shutter.
  • Timer: Choose three or 10 seconds or Off.
  • Filters: You can preview filters while you shoot. You can also disable them in postproduction if you want.

At the bottom of the screen are the various modes in which you can shoot. If you leave your camera settings in the default, it resets to Photo mode every time you relaunch the Photos app.

You can swipe left or right to access the following modes:

  • Photo: Still photos with the option of Live Photos.
  • Video: Shoot videos at the quality stated in the Camera settings.
  • Time-Lapse: This is an automatic time-lapse mode that shoots still images at “dynamic intervals” to create time-lapse videos.
  • Slo-Mo: Record slow-motion video at the quality stated in the Camera settings.
  • Portrait: Devices with more than one camera can use this mode to add depth-of-field and lighting effects to portraits and other objects.
  • Square: Capture square-format images.
  • Pano: Shoot panoramic images by moving your phone horizontally. Your device automatically stitches the images together.

At the bottom of the screen, you see the shutter button (white for stills, red for video). There’s also a shortcut to the last photo you took in the Camera Roll at the bottom left, and a button to switch to the front-facing camera at the bottom right.

Kevin Hart opens up needing help to use the toilet amid recovery from car crash

Kevin Hart spoke about the hardships he faced during his recovery from a major car crash less than three months ago - including how he felt needing a helper to use the toilet.

'It is the most humbling thing in the world,' he said while appearing Tuesday on his SiriusXM show Straight From The Hart. 'You really are helpless. There was nothing I could do.'

The Ride Along actor continues his physical recovery from a September 1 crash which required him to have three areas of his spine fused in an emergency surgery.

Hart was a passenger in his own 1970 Plymouth Barracuda when it veered off Mulholland Highway and careened into a ditch in Malibu Hills, California.

The vehicle was being driven at the time by Jared Black, 28, the fiance of Rebecca Broxterman, 31, who is the personal trainer of his wife Eniko Parrish, 35.

Hart delved into detail about the physical misery he experienced from severe stomach issues during a time he was largely immobile following surgery in the days following the crash.

'To move is a Goddamn event,' Hart said, recalling one instance in which he was awakened by the severe urge to defecate early in the morning while he was hospitalized. 'In my mind, I'm gonna f***ing s*** out my mouth - it's trying to come out!'

Hart said he 'sat up out that bed like the Goddamn Undertaker,' referring to a fast sit-up move from the WWE wrestler.

'My stomach felt like somebody lit dynamite and threw it in my f***ing stomach and ran,' said Hart.

The comedian said he found relief from a healthcare professional named Jose who was quick to help as his urge to move his bowels worsened.

'Here's the most humbling thing in the world: Eniko is sitting on the Goddamn couch; Jose was my nurse, he's like, 60 years old, Mexican dude,' the comic recalled. 'Jose comes in and don't ask me no questions.

'Jose grabs the gauze, puts this spongy soapy s*** on the gauze, turns me round and starts wiping my a**. He said, "It's OK man, I've been doing this for 40 years ... keep it coming man."'

Hart lauded his nurse for his professionalism, adding the real takeaway was the despair he felt as his body remained immobile during his recovery.

'It was humbling how it happened,' he said. 'You really are helpless. There was nothing I could do - there was nothing I could do to stop that.'

Nigerian man, Kenyan woman arrested and charged for preaching in Kenya without permit

Authorities in Kenya have charged a Nigerian pastor and a Kenyan woman with engaging in evangelism without a permit.

According to Kenya newspaper, Daily Nation, Mr Joseph Ifeanyichukwu Ezeking, 39, and Alice Kawira, 35, on diverse dates between January and September this year preached without work permit in Embu and Meru counties.

Ms Kawira was charged with harbouring the foreigner at her place while knowing that he was illegally engaging in the evangelism.

Appearing before Isiolo Principal Magistrate Evanson Ngigi on Wednesday, the duo was also charged with obstructing police officers from arresting them in Meru County.

The suspects, who pleaded not guilty to the charges, were each released on a Sh100, 000 bond.

Troubled Edo PDP also mocks troubled Edo APC... and the mockery is legendary...

All hail politicians! Troubled Edo State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that on Tuesday suspended its former governorship candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, is now mocking Edo APC which is also deeply troubled (open secret).

PDP mocked the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), over the gale of suspension rocking it.

The state chairman of PDP, Dan Orbih, who was reacting to the crisis, while addressing journalists in Benin, said that it is only in APC that the national chairman, the state chairman and the secretary, would be suspended in one day.

Orbih, who described APC as a disorganised party, wondered how it could rule the state and be expected to restore law and order.

He denied allegation that Governor Godwin Obaseki gave PDP the sum of N6 billion to enable him defect to the party.

He said: “Governor Obaseki has no business giving anybody money to join the PDP. If he has N6 billion to join PDP, I will advise him to spend that money to address the problems of the state.

“We don’t need any money from anybody to join our party. Our party is open to all those who are interested in joining us as member including Governor Obaseki. I know very well that the problems facing his government is that they don’t have a proper party structure. I see APC as a disorganised party in Edo State.

“We have heard that they have suspended the state chairman, Barrister Ojezua and another report said that the new chairman, Col David Imoise was not properly elected. The truth is that you cannot put the state in the hand of people who cannot manage themselves.”
