New Apple AirPods will come with Siri integration this year

New Apple AirPods will come with Siri integration this year

According to a new report from a Japanese Apple blog, Apple's AirPower wireless charging mat will finally be released next month.

Bloomberg later suggested that Apple will make the AirPods water-resistant next year. The report tallies with the previous report from the Apple Post that launch will occur sometime in March.

Apple has said it will release an upgraded case that allows the headphones to be charged wirelessly.

Macotakara doesn't make any cases with respect to the AirPods remote charging case.

That means that if you're charging both your AirPods and iPhone 8 on the AirPower, the devices should communicate with each other and "decide" how much power each device requires. In order to access Siri, users should manually tap once on it and it will access the voice AI from the iPhone.

Apart from the wireless chip, the report states that Apple's upcoming second-generation AirPods will also add support for the "Hey Siri" wake command. However, the report notes that the water-resistance would just be enough to protect the earphones against "splashes of water and rain", unlike the full submersion, like with the current Apple Watch. However, it is not envisaged that they will be created to be fully submerged in water or used while swimming, surfing, or playing water sports. The company is also planning to include the AirPods in the yearly update cycle, which translates to a new set of AirPods every year. Those rumours also claim the upgraded earbuds will come with an Apple-made wireless chip to improve how Bluetooth connections are managed. Software trickery to connect them all together and lets you check up on how each device is doing from the phone's screen. The idea was to replace the traditional wired headphones with a wireless headphones. The charging mat will enable Apple clients to charge their iPhone, AirPods, and Apple Watch on a similar surface.
