I live in an all-Apple household. Both my fiancé and I rock iPhones, Macs, iPads, and Apple TVs in our home; the only major non-Apple gadgets are our myriad Amazon Echo and Dots. But I'm not exactly most people.
Many of my friends are in a different bubble: They may like their Macs and iPads, but they also use Android phones on a daily basis. It's easy to see why a product like Apple's AirPods appeals to people completely in Apple's sphere, but it's a harder sell to folks who live between device lines.

yes, there's three options: Siri, Play/Pause, and Off
