Apple possibly working on AirPods upgrade

Future Apple AirPods

Sources also told Bloomberg that AirPods may get another update in 2019, making them water-resistant enough to survive one foot of water for five minutes.

Per a research report by Canalys, Apple was the market leader in the wearables bands space in the third quarter of 2017, benefiting from the launch of Watch Series 3.

Apple introduced the first AirPods in September 2016 alongside the iPhone 7 as a way to replace the traditional wired headphone jack. If true, this will make the interaction seamless than before and make AirPods truly hands-free. Are you willing to spend as much as $200 for a wireless charging mat?


That is what's expected this year. Considering AirPods cost a rather hefty US$159 from Apple's online store at the moment, it's prudent for users to take great care of their product. That report additionally noticed that Apple was going to just offer the refreshed AirPods case with remote charging through its retail locations, not outsider venders like Best Buy. This version of the wireless earphones will apparently arrive with an upgraded wireless chip, which will manage Bluetooth connections. Henceforth Apple AirPod users may never have to worry about those occasional splashes or maybe they can even swim with the Pods. A Bloomberg copy reports that Apple is working on AirPods 2 and it could launch this year.

A model to be released "as early as next year" is set to be water-resistant. But that doesn't mean you can submerge the device in water. The original Apple wireless headphones doesn't have an IP certification and it's still a bit of risk to expose it to water. The idea was later used by many big names like Google and Samsung. And according to earlier reports from multiple sources previous year, it's going to cost $200 when it's released. The first party wireless charging matt was created to charge iPhones, Apple Watches, and Airpods at the same time.
