While it's the likes of the iPhone 14 and Apple Watch Series 8 that were grabbing the headlines in the lead up to Apple's event this evening, Apple's headphones have also seen an impressive update. It includes all the improvements you'd expect – longer battery life, two-times more active noise cancellation, incase speaker and is now compatible with Apple Watch charger.

But the feature we're most excited about is the ability to change the volume using touch controls. We've been waiting for this feature since Apple first launched these impressive little headphones. Maybe we're just lazy, but not having to use an iPhone to adjust the volume is a game-changer for us. Now all we need is for them to release them in black. Please, Apple?
