Rumors have been swirling about new AirPods since past year, when it was thought that Apple would release a new model before the 2018 holidays. Google and Amazon are recognized as Apple's main rivals in this field have sold 10 to 20 million units.
DigiTimes affirmed yesterday that Apple would launch a second-generation AirPods with health monitoring functions during the first half of this year. "This means you'll be able to use Siri while your iPhone is in your pocket without having to tap on your AirPods". The report also conveyed that the AirPods 2 will be safeguarded during rains and from sweat due to its water-resistance technology.
9to5Mac has a report out on Thursday following the seed, indicating that Apple is indeed working on a new pair of truly wireless headphones. Bluetooth 5.0 offers four times the wireless range of the Bluetooth 4.2 standard used in the original AirPods, so you won't be tethered to your iPhone quite as tightly with the next-generations earbuds. That report did say that AirPods 2 will have built-in health features. Apart from that, the batteries inside the AirPods are tiny so while integrating the health monitor feature might as well increase the size of the battery, nevertheless, given Apple's reputation for style over substance it is unlikely that we see any battery changes on the device.
