Accordingly, the new model will likely be more expensive than Apple's wireless earbuds. There is also no word on whether they will be wireless but it is safe to assume they will and will possible utilize the updated technology that will live in AirPods 2. Besides all that, it is said that Apple is actually working on brand new over-the-ear headphones to be released in 2018 as well.

Apple is also rumoured to working on a second-generation pair of AirPod earbuds, which include an always-on Siri. AppleInsider first reported the news.

Apple AirPods, which were launched about two years back, are one of the most successful products of the company. The great thing about W2 is that it offers greater speed but not at the expense of battery life.

Apple could be updating its hardware line with a new pair of over-ear headphones.

According to a report by Bloomberg, Apple's forthcoming iOS 12 mobile operating will bring a new tool dubbed as Digital Health, which enables parents to monitor the time their kids spend on their iPad and iPhones. Admittedly, tapping the Airpods twice to activate the personal assistant doesn't sound like too much work, but they still decided to make it even easier. Does that mean that the microphone is actually constantly recording until it recognizes the phrase?

Apple to have own-brand, high-end over-ear headphones with all-new design; to be as convenient as AirPods with better sound quality; shipments to begin 4Q18F at earliest; Primax & SZS will be the key suppliers & will benefit from high ASPs.

While not stated, there's a good chance these would be wireless (possibly using the AirPods' rumored wireless chip upgrade) and would rely heavily on Siri voice integration. The note suggests that, at the earliest, the headphones will come out at the end of the year, though that leaves room for the cans to slip until 2019. Before you ask, no, you won't be able to dive in the ocean with them, but you won't be bothered by the pouring rain.
