Apple to release ‘Airpods’?


A few days ago we mentioned that rumours were doing the rounds about Apple’s plans to ditch the standard 3.5mm audio jacks. The reports caused a worldwide uproar among Apple fans, leading to a massive online petition signed by 227,000 people.

But now, the newest rumours state that Apple might be finally be about to use their pre-registered trademark Airpods. Apple subsidiary Beats Electronics is said to be working on wireless earbuds that will launch along with the iPhone 7. If these rumours are to be believed, the earbuds will be completely wireless, just like the Moto Hint. The Airpods will have microphones for voice as well as noise-cancelation and Siri. Charging solutions are not mentioned but there will be some sort of dock that will come with the buds.

Prices can only be approximated at this moment, but one thing is for sure – Apple will never bundle these with the iPhone 7.
