You know how Santa is famous for knowing if you've been bad or good? He's got nothing on Apple's wireless earbuds that are "always on and always connected." They know when they're in your ear, when you take them out, when you're talking--Hey Siri!--and when you're listening. They connect to your iPhone and your Apple Watch at the same time, so you can...get confused about which device is playing? These earbuds sound almost too smart for their own good. Either that, or they really are magical as Apple says.

What could happen if something went wrong

Things that go in your ears that are always on, always connected, and always listening--seems like there's the possibility something could go wrong. Fortunately, Apple has a pretty good record when it comes to privacy and security.
