  • Bloomberg: Premium AirPods, next-gen HomePod and new over-ear Apple headphones coming in 2019

The biometric sensors and extended range may not make it into the next AirPods should Apple move to release it in 2019. Apple could release its new over-the-ear headphones as early as late 2018 or by early 2019.

The Apple Inc. division responsible for accessories such as the AirPods wireless earbuds recorded $12.9 billion in revenue during the last fiscal year.

Bloomberg also reports that the HomePod will be updated as well, but nothing has been said regarding creatures other than Apple is has been discussing internally nether it intends to change suppliers away from Inventec. When the earbuds first came out in 2016, they were delayed, and there was limited supply after the product finally went on sale. Unfortunately, it might not be possible to give them Ingress Protection, but it means that they will be able to keep out water from light rain and perspiration.

With the AirPods, Apple has created a bold new kind of wireless headphone, removing the annoyances of struggling to pair and remembering to turn them off to avoid battery drain. Given all of these new features, it's very likely for the pair of new earbuds to cost more than the current $159 model. An in-house audio product team is run by Gary Geaves, formerly an engineer from B&W, a maker of speaker systems and headphones.

Saudi Arabia lifts ban on women drivers
The number of new drivers remains low, as women with foreign permits were only able to convert them starting this month. Many Saudis celebrated on social media, but some reactions were derisive or expressed concern about the social impact.

The pricier model is expected to feature noise-cancelling technology, as well as water resistance. The current AirPods will be refreshed later this year with a new chip and support for hands-free Siri activation, Bloomberg News reported.

Apple is also working on a wireless charging case for the AirPods that would be compatible with its yet-to-be-released AirPower charging mat. We don't know much about these, but Bloomberg's sources say that they'll be Apple-branded.

The over the ear headphones will be a premium offering targeting the likes of Bose and Sennheiser. These are said to have Apple branding and will be the high-end alternatives to the firm's Beats line. A spokesperson for Apple declined to comment on the leaked information.
