Apple described its decision to remove the 3.5mm headphone jack from the iPhone 7 as one that took a lot of “courage,” and the company also introduced its new wireless headphones at the same stage. The wireless headphones, called AirPods, look quite like Apple’s normal EarPods sans wires. Many have expressed concerns that they will simply fall out when they’re doing physically intensive activities like running or dancing. Apple CEO Tim Cook wants to reassure you that you don’t have to worry about the AirPods falling out of your ears.


Cook was on ABC’s Good Morning America where he said that AirPods don’t fall out even if you’re doing physically intensive activities. Cook explained that it’s actually the wires in a wired headphone that makes the earbud fall out as they apply weight which forces it out.

“I’ve been on treadmills, walking, doing all the things you normally do. You know how you walk around with the earbuds and they’re constantly getting caught on something? You never have that problem,” he added.

Cook reiterated during his talk with the morning show that he’s never personally had an AirPod fall out of his ear. One could suggest perhaps he knows of other people who have faced this problem, but for the CEO to publicly address a concern that has been gaining steam on social media ever since the AirPods were announced goes to show that Apple did think about this when it was making these wireless headphones.

If all else fails, you can always count on Apple selling you an individual AirPod.
