Apple would work on new generation, water-resistant AirPods

Apple would work on a new set of AirPods, probably more expensive, with noise suppression, according to Bloomberg.

The report quotes people aware, who said that Apple is exploring the possibility of making the AirPods water resistant. That said, you still do not want to go swimming with these things because the water resistant AirPods would be more likely to resist sweating and rain rather than being submerged.

Bloomberg said that a source suggested that Apple could add biometric sensors to next-generation AirPods, thus promoting efforts to monitor the company's health. Sources also claim that the updated AirPods would come with a new box compatible with Apple's new wireless charging pad.

At present, AirPods cost $ 159 in the United States. The new pair of wireless in-ear headphones will likely cost more, allowing Apple to price the AirPods in the same way as iPhones, offering a higher-end, more expensive model and a low-end model like the iPhone. IPhone SE.

This news comes in the middle of a great year for the hearing efforts of Apple.

On the one hand, Amazon Echo's competitor, Apple's HomePod, was delayed after its announcement. Bloomberg says Cupertino is already at work to develop a new model.

Apple would also work on earphones on the ear. The headphones would be Apple brand, and would be on the upper end of the spectrum with Boze and Sennheiser. The company already sells headphones through Beats, which Apple acquired in 2014 for $ 3 billion.
