New Apple AirPods with noise cancelling coming in 2019, says report

Sales of Apple's Home Pod speaker have reportedly fallen below expectations

The report also talks about Apple's plans to launch a new Homepod and a studio-quality over the ear headphones as well.

The new AirPods will feature noise cancellation and will be water resistant (sweat/rain, not for swimming). A new report suggests that true next-generation AirPods won't arrive until 2019.

Reports of new Apple audio gear have circulated for a few months now.

You've probably seen people walking around with Apple's AirPods sticking our of their ears and wondered how someone doesn't just lose the wireless earbuds. Now, Apple, being Apple, the brand both wants to improve on them and to offer listeners a few more options, according to a new report. When the earbuds first came out in 2016, they were delayed, and there was limited supply after the product finally went on sale. It won't enable users to swim with the next-generation AirPods.

The earbuds will likely be a premium version that will cost more than the existing $159 pair. Apple is apparently thinking of working with audio system manufacturer Tymphany as a production partner for the headphones, though the deal has not yet been finalized and production has not yet begun. The original goal was to get those out by the end of 2018, but development-related challenges have pushed them back to next year. Also underworks is a wireless Airpods charging case that would work with the upcoming AirPower charger. As for this year, the company will reportedly be updating the earphones with a new chip and support for hands-free Siri activation. Sources said the device will directly compete with models from Bose Corp. and Sennheiser and will use the Apple branding because it is going to be the higher-end alternative to the Beats line.

Last but not the least, Apple is also said to be developing a new HomePod speaker that it will launch in 2019 but there are no details available at this point in time about what it might bring to the table. A spokesperson for Apple declined to comment on the leaked information. Two years later, Apple bought headphone maker and streaming-music company Beats for $3 billion, its largest acquisition.
