Apple plans to introduce a new HomePod, higher-end AirPods, and studio-quality over-the-ear headphones in 2019. Details are slim on the new HomePod, but sources did tell Bloomberg a little about next year’s AirPods refresh:
The Cupertino, California-based company is working on new AirPods with noise-cancellation and water resistance, the people said. Apple is trying to increase the range that AirPods can work away from an iPhone or iPad.
The over-the-ear headphones will be higher quality than Apple’s Beats line and compete with high-end models from Bose and Sennheiser. This all follows an AirPods refresh coming later this year with hands-free Siri support and a wireless charging case. Apple seems to be staying busy in the audio market.
