Apple is working on a new generation of wireless headphones AirPods, which will be protected from moisture and equipped with noise cancellation. The new model will be more expensive than the previous model, but how much is not specified. This was reported Bloomberg, citing its own sources in the company.
According to the interlocutors of the publication, Apple is studying the possibility to make the AirPods protected from moisture, but not from diving: they will not be able to float, but they will withstand the rain and rinsing under the faucet. One source specified that the company can add biometric sensors to the next generation of headphones. AirPods can present in a new case to achieve compatibility with a rug for wireless charging Apple AirPower.
The current version of AirPods costs $ 159 in the US (12 thousand rubles in Russia). Apple will use the same principle on headphones as on iPhones: the latter model will be more expensive, and the previous one will be cheaper and more affordable. According to the publication, the company is also working on a new version of the “smart” column HomePod.
In February 2018, Bloomberg reported that Apple was working on overhead headphones. According to sources, all new products will not be submitted until 2019.
Apple introduced AirPods in September 2016 at the annual presentation. Due to production problems, sales began in the US only two months after the release, and other countries had to wait for the beginning of 2017.
