AIRPODS 2 COMING THIS FALL

THE STORY

Apple is ready to launch its wireless earbuds next edition, AirPods 2.

WHAT IS NEW?

Apple introduced AirPods in 2016 and according to the latest reports just like other products, the next edition will come on the market soon. The highlighted feature of the new model will be a better wireless chip for managing Bluetooth connections.

The predecessor AirPods, it has W1, a custom in-house Bluetooth 4.1 chipset which made connecting to iOS devices quick and dependable. Well, there is no confirmation that the next AirPods will have W2 (similar to Apple Watch Series 4) or will be upgraded with a new chip.W1 is one of the most reliable wireless chip in the market, and it is going to be difficult to top that.

Apple is also planning to introduce the ability to activate Siri by saying “Hey Siri” rather than tapping on the earbuds. No matter how funny or awkward it seems talking to your headphones but it is pretty helpful in making calls and changing songs when you are kneading dough or hitting the gym.

WHAT ARE THE DRAWBACKS OF FIRST EDITION THAT NEEDED TO BE OVERCOME?

One of the biggest disappointment with the AirPods is even if the headphones are suitable to use in the gym but it lacks water-resistant. Apparently, Apple is also working on an athlete-focused version Apple AirPod 3 set for 2019 which is supposedly water resistant. Water resistant feature is enough to protect your AirPod from sweat.

Well, why only water resistant, why not waterproof! Don’t you think Apple should focus on making its devices waterproof? As for the price quoted for its devices, a user should get a waterproof device after paying so much.
