Waterproof AirPods to be released with voice command feature

Future Apple AirPods

The current charge of all devices on the AirPower mat will also be displayed on the iPhone 8/X if it's also on charge, another feature not offered by other wireless chargers. The AirPower was inveiled alongside the iPhone 8 and iPhone X in September 2017, and can be used to charge iPhones, Apple Watches, and AirPods simultaneously.

MacOtakara suggests that extra engineering was needed to enable Apple Watch Series 3 charging using the Qi-based AirPower. Pricing for the accessory has not been announced.

With the Airpods doing pretty well as of lately, placing them on an similar update cycle as other Apple devices makes ideal sense.

Other than that, Apple is also said to be planning on making it easier for users to interact with Siri on the new Airpods. Now Apple may be working on upgrading the AirPods and hoping to launch the next generation of wireless headphones as early as this year. The company reportedly plans to add a new wireless chip to the AirPods this year, and add water resistant capabilities, allowing you to take a walk in the rain with music still playing in your ears. The new update will allow users to use the "Hey, Siri" command, without having to tap the headphones first, which users now have to do. If the report is true, soon you'll be able to wake Siri just by saying those magic words - "Hey Siri" - and command your way to carry out various operations.

As 9To5Mac reports, Apple is now expected to launch the AirPower at some point in March.

Apple's first AirPods landed alongside the iPhone 7 and since then have been selling like crack cocaine ever since.

New models could start appearing later this year.

Apple also might be looking to upgrade the gaming capabilities of its Apple TV set-top box.

Apple was not immediately available for comment.
