Apple-branded over-ear headphones could arrive alongside iPhone XI
As reported previously, the headphones will allegedly make use of Apple’s dedicated audio chips and incorporate noise cancelation technology in addition to always-on Siri. Apple may also include some health-related features, although this remains purely speculative at the moment.
If Apple goes ahead with its 2019 release, the new headphones could arrive alongside the iPhone XI series and an updated HomePod. The Cupertino giant is also said to be working on next-gen AirPods which will include always-on Siri, water resistance, an improved audio chip, and potentially a built-in heart rate monitor. But according to recent reports, this accessory will arrive within the first half of the year, possibly at Apple's expected March event.
