There’s a chance that the wait for the new AirPods will soon be over. According to a rumor that has not been verified, Apple may release the earbuds on March 29, which is the last day of this month.
The information was originally posted on the Spanish site Applesfera. It would appear that they are familiar with an internal Apple communication that refers to that date. In the event that this turns out to be the case, the buds might be presented to the public at an event that the corporation is rumored to be organizing for the 25th of March.
It is widely known that AirPods 2 are now in the development stage. In November, Apple was able to prove that their device was compatible with Bluetooth thanks to the Bluetooth Special Interests Group. Before this, the tech giant had already sent in two patents for the buds to be able to track fitness, which would be a big change from just being an audio player to being a fitness tracker.
According to DigiTimes, “In terms of wireless headphones, Apple is planned to launch AirPods 2 sometime in the first half of 2019, and it is predicted that the new wireless headphones would have a larger battery life than the previous wireless headphones.” Regrettably, there is no information regarding the specific features that will be included in the health monitoring. What about your pulse? How active are you? How stressed are you? The possibilities are endless. Earbuds, as opposed to watches, are typically the devices that provide the most accurate readings of a person’s heart rate; the performance of traditional chest straps is the only thing that can beat them.
According to DigiTimes, “In terms of wireless headphones, Apple is planning to debut AirPods 2 sometime in the first half of 2019, and it is predicted that the new wireless earbuds with distinct designs to carry health monitoring capabilities would garner enthusiastic market responses.”
When it comes to the design and the music, there is also potential for growth and development. According to a report that was published by Bloomberg in June of last year, the buds will incorporate water resistance to defend against rain and splashing. According to several other rumors, the handling of ambient sound will be improved. It’s also possible that Apple will release an improved wireless charging case alongside improved integration of Siri.
But at this point, everything is just conjecture. The company based in Cupertino has not disclosed a release date, nor has it even stated that it is working on a product that is of a subsequent generation. Despite this, rumors are making their way through a number of different channels. Since the initial release of the product exactly two years ago, there has not been a single iteration of the product since then.
