New audio accessories also coming.
Apple is about to get serious on its audio accessories if these rumors turn out to be true. We’ve already seen Apple investing heavily on audio accessories first with the AirPods and most recently with the HomePod.
But Apple isn’t stopping there. Rumors have suggested that the Cupertino company is looking to release new versions of the AirPods, HomePod and new over the ear headphone.
The AirPods will most likely feature wireless charging support – a feature originally announced last year. While the new HomePod will come in a budget version that’s priced lower than the original release.
Additionally, while it is not confirmed, a new headphone is likely to be introduced by Apple next year. The headphones will most likely feature the same chip and technology as its current line and will join the AirPod and the HomePod as the next line of wireless audio products from Apple.
There was also talk of putting sensors on the AirPods for health monitoring functions, but there’s a good chance that wouldn’t come in the next couple of years.
