Apple‘s AirPods have become a remarkable fixture in the company’s portfolio, regularly selling well and earning praise for their economic designs. And rumors seem to foreshadow that a revised version of the ear buds will soon hit the market.
While all unconfirmed, health monitoring is one component Apple was hinted to be looking into, and supposedly the AirPod successors will have an easier time staying in your ears.
However, Twitter user Steve H.McFly emerged to offer the tidbits he’s heard regarding new AirPods, noting the machines will “likely” be revealed in the fall. Although he admits he cannot verify these details with 100 percent certainty, he did notably correctly leaked the design of last year’s iPad Pro.
Some #AirPods2 details I got from a new and yet unconfirmed but seemingly reliable source. Thus, I can’t vouch these at 100%…

While this is all still unconfirmed, it does sound plausible. Apple previously confirmed a wireless charging case for the AirPods was coming over a year ago, and it makes sense Apple would hesitate to release an updated AirPod model alongside a wireless charging case for the current one.
Apple frequently holds conferences in the spring, usually in March, meaning tech aficionados may not need to wait too long to see some of what the hardware giant has planned for 2019.
