It almost seems like they are part of the human body as the rise of Apple Airpods has reached fever pitch.  But two celebrities  -  who together have 322 million followers on instagram are facing questions over their promotion of what Apple calls rip off versions.

 

Kylie and Kendall Jenner are amongst dozens of influencers reported to be promoting so-called "clones" of the original tech - which in some cases can look eerily similar to Apple's product, although they may deliver a different experience.

 

The UK's National Trading Standards team's understood to be looking into a number of promotions on Instagram... the platform says it requires influencers to abide by local laws.

 

Kylie and Kendall Jenner have yet to comment.
