Apple Preps Upgraded AirPods With New Features Ahead Of 2019 Release

Those same sources added that Apple is putting together AirPods with water resistance (mainly against rain or sweat, not for swimming or anything like that) and noise-cancellation.

Apple's also looking into giving upcoming AirPods some kind of biometric sensors, to add health-tracking features to the device.

The Apple Inc. division responsible for accessories such as the AirPods wireless earbuds recorded $12.9 billion in revenue during the last fiscal year. Apple also wants to ensure that these new AirPods can work even when relatively far away from their companion smartphone or tablet. However, users won't be able to swim wearing them. Given all of these new features, it's very likely for the pair of new earbuds to cost more than the current $159 model. Apple is apparently thinking of working with audio system manufacturer Tymphany as a production partner for the headphones, though the deal has not yet been finalized and production has not yet begun.

Apple wanted to release them at year's end, but it struggled to develop them, which forced the company to push back the launch to 2019, according to Bloomberg. In addition, the company is working on wireless case charger headphone that will be compatible with the charger AirPower.

Apple is also said to be preparing to put out a set of high-end, over-the-ear-headphones that will have the Apple brand and be marketed as an option to Apple's line of Beats headphones, and is said to be preparing to put on sale an upgraded version of its HomePod home speaker.

Not much is known about the other two products in Apple's reported 2019 audio game plan, but studio-quality over-ear headphones could help the company target a certain segment of users that its products aren't effectively reaching now. Originally, this product was expected to launch before the end of the year.

Apple is also said to be in the process of developing a new version of its HomePod smart speaker. For all the valid criticisms you could level at the HomePod, poor sound quality is certainly not one of them.

Apple did not immediately reply to a request for comment. Apple said Other Products revenue was up 38% year-over-year in its second quarter, reaching almost $4 billion in total revenue for the period.
