Apple Airpods 2: Dates, Price, Specifications and Rumors

Do you want to know when the new AirPods will be available? We have the latest news on Apple AirPods 2: release date, specifications, price and new tools of the Apple headphones.

Apple released its first wireless headphones in September 2016 with the iPhone 7 and, without a doubt, they were a success: they provide excellent sound, the auto play/pause function is the most practical, and the precision with the that allows you to control Siri is a very rewarding surprise.

However, almost two years after its launch, we still have not been able to enjoy an update of Apple’s AirPods. In this article, we will put on the table all the comments and rumors that have been leaking about the Apple AirPods 2: its launch date, its technical specifications, its price, and its new functions.

The release date of Apple AirPods 2

As we said before, the first AirPods appeared in the market in September 2016. We are many of us who were sure that Apple would launch an update of their AirPods in the fall of 2017, however, this did not happen.

In fact, if we take a look at previous years, the only product that Apple has updated every year has been the iPhone, so it does not make much sense to expect annual updates of each and every Apple device.

A Bloomberg report of 2018 explains that Apple AirPods 2 will not arrive until 2019 (this may happen earlier this year).

As you probably know, Apple offers several events throughout each year, but it is usually in the spring event where it usually announces its new releases.

Our analysis leads us to think that it is very likely that it will be in the spring event of 2019 when the arrival of Apple AirPods 2 is announced.

However, the belief grows that perhaps they will arrive even earlier. On the other hand, it is rumored that this update will be accompanied by a new helmet type headphone that could be called StudioPods.

New features for Apple AirPods 2

  1. Hey Siri!

To activate Siri on AirPods you have to touch them gently, however, according to Bloomberg sources, with the new Apple AirPods 2, you can use the voice control to activate Siri saying “Hey Siri!”, Just as you do with your iPhone, iPad or HomePod. If you want, you can find out what are the most fun questions to ask Siri.

  1. Noise Cancellation

A report from Barclays predicts that the new star feature of Apple AirPods 2 will be noise cancellation. To achieve this, Apple will have to change the design of the headphones.

  1. Wireless charging

It has been confirmed that Apple’s new wireless charger, AirPower, will be compatible with a new cover for AirPods. Images of the wireless charging case have arrived.

It has an indicator light on the back that will show if there is a lot or little battery available. You can take a look at the following image to get an idea.

  1. Waterproof

Bloomberg also predicts that the new Apple AirPods 2 will be water resistant, which does not mean “waterproof”. This means that they will not be designed to be submerged, but they will be able to withstand rain or light splashes.

  1. Health

Future Apple AirPods 2 may have biometric sensors to control heart rate, according to a Bloomberg report.

Technical Specifications of Apple AirPods 2

There is still nothing confirmed about the technical specifications of the AirPods2 although reports such as Bloomberg’s predicted the inclusion of a wireless chip (probably the W2 that debuted with the Apple Watch Series 3).

If this is true, the improvement will be fantastic since this new chip would make the Wi-Fi connection 85% faster, and 50% more efficient than with the W1 chip of the original AirPods.

Price of Apple AirPods 2

As of today, August 2018, AirPods cost $200 in the Apple Store, (you can also find them on Amazon for $145).

Normally, Apple AirPods 2 will be launched at a similar price, although Bloomberg’s June 2018 report states that if the update of AirPods is very noticeable, they may see a small increase in their price.
