Email startup Superhuman debuts a cheaper $10/mo tier for students and academics

Published

on

Email startup Superhuman has been lauded by plenty in the tech community as a simpler and faster way to navigate email, but at $30 per month, the service’s hefty subscription price has been out of reach for plenty of potential users.

Today, the startup is taking some aims to bring more users outside of the tech world into the fold of its “premium email” service, rolling out academic pricing for students and educators. The new, discounted $10/month plan is available for undergrad and graduate students and faculty members with a valid school-issued email address.

CEO Rahul Vohra says the effort is intended to bring their service to folks in the academic world who have seen their reliance on email grow even more amid the pandemic, he sees Superhuman as a natural fit for plenty of their needs.

“With academics, so much of their work runs on email collaborating on papers, collaborating with conference organizers, collaborating with journal and publications,” Vohra tells TechCrunch. “And with almost every single student attending their classes virtually… email is going to be critical for students, professionals and employers.”

The company still has a lengthy waitlist of potential users, some 350,000 people at this point, but many people are on the waitlist because Superhuman doesn’t work with the platforms they use yet. The six-year-old startup still does not have an Android mobile app and it only works for Gmail users, Vohra says that 61 of the top 100 universities are using G Suite. By the end of next year Vohra hopes to have rolled out both Office 365 support and the long-awaited Android app.

Students and faculty at colleges signing up with .edu addresses will notably be able to jump in front of the lengthy waitlist queue.

Superhuman’s features includes split algorithmic inboxes, a powerful set of keyboard shortcuts, reminders and, most recently, deep calendar integrations. The set of features has been enough to earn the service a $260 million valuation after raising a $33 million Series B led by Andreessen Horowitz last year.

The company has kept a singular focus on selling singular subscriptions. Asked whether this education pricing could one day become the service’s default pricing, Vohra insisted that $30/month was the right price point for their service today. “I would never say never, but I think superhuman is priced correctly, especially for where we are today,” he said.

The Superhuman for Education pricing tier rolls out today.

Apple will replace AirPods Pro for free with faulty noise cancellation, static or crackling

Published

on

Today, exactly one year after Apple first launched the AirPods Pro — and thus the same day the very first AirPods Pro owners will see their one-year warranties expire — Apple has launched a repair program that offers free repairs or replacements for another whole year if your AirPods Pro experience issues with noise cancellation or static.

Specifically, Apple will fix:

Crackling or static sounds that increase in loud environments, with exercise or while talking on the phone

Active Noise Cancellation not working as expected, such as a loss of bass sound, or an increase in background sounds, such as street or airplane noise

Apple says only a “small percentage of AirPods Pro” are affected by the issues, but it apparently wasn’t just an early batch — Apple says affected units were manufactured “before October 2020,” meaning every AirPods Pro ever made might be eligible. That’s quite a recall if so. Apple says it will repair faulty AirPods Pro for two years after you first buy them.

We’ve heard complaints about degraded noise cancellation before, and at least one Verge editor has replaced their AirPods Pro under warranty. It’s nice to hear that Apple isn’t just cutting buyers off as soon as that warranty expires.
