Apple has officially refreshed their wireless earbuds, which now offer "Hey, Siri" support, a new H1 chip that promises better battery life and, perhaps best of all, a case that now supports inductive charging. From the product page:

Lay it down, charge it up.
With the new Wireless Charging Case, charging is as simple as placing the AirPods case on a Qi-compatible charging mat. That’s it. The LED indicator on the front of the case lets you know that your AirPods are charging. And when you’re away from a charging mat, you can use the Lightning port to charge.
The case is also backwards-compatible with older AirPods, and can be purchased separately. Alternately, you can get the new earbuds with the old case, since Apple has yet to release a first-party wireless charging mat. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Pricing is as follows:

AirPods with standard case: $159 USD / $219 CAD
AirPods with wireless charging case: $199 USD / $269 CAD
Wireless charging case: $79 USD / $99 CAD

The new AirPods can be ordered online now, and will be available for purchase in-store next week.
