I’m praying that the new AirPods Max won’t have touch controls


They say it’s a person’s flaws we fall in love with. That explains how I feel about the AirPods Max then.

Apple’s over-ear headphones are one of the more intriguing products the company has released in recent years — and I’ve found them both wonderful and frustrating.

Yet, I find myself feeling warm towards them. For every misstep with something like that appalling case, there’s a positive point. And one of those was the digital crown, a little control dial on the headphones.
