The publication claims that Apple is expected to launch an AirPods 2 in the first half of the year, and that the AirPods 2 will come with health tracking features. “In terms of wireless headsets, Apple is set to release AirPods 2 sometime in the first half of 2019, and the new wireless earbuds with discrete designs to carry health monitoring functions are expected to receive enthusiastic market responses.”
DigiTimes has a mixed record when it comes to such reports so take it with a grain of salt for now. We have heard rumors of some of the features Apple could be planning to include in its AirPods, but whether or not they will debut so soon is a different story. There are some rumors that claim that the device might not even be launched this year, while others are insisting that it will be.
Some rumored features include better water resistance, improved battery life, and also potentially noise-cancelling.
