Nice, we’re getting noise-canceling AirPods in 2019

Bloomberg: Premium AirPods, next-gen HomePod and new over-ear Apple headphones coming in 2019

Apple originally meant to introduce the headphones by the end of 2018, but faced development challenges and was targeting a launch in 2019, the people said. As for this year, the company will reportedly be updating the earphones with a new chip and support for hands-free Siri activation.

The Bloomberg report also references "a new version of the HomePod for as early as [2019]", though it doesn't specify what Apple is thinking of adding to the speaker. And while you won't be able to jump into a pool wearing the AirPods, Apple hopes that you'll be able to go on a long run (even in the rain) without having to worry about sweat or precipitation damaging the earbuds. The new earbuds could also come with health features like a heart rate sensor to further the company's reach in the health market. A new report claims that Apple is also developing a new set of wireless AirPods which will feature noise cancellation. Given all of these new features, it's very likely for the pair of new earbuds to cost more than the current $159 model. Apple is also working on a wireless charging case that's compatible with the upcoming AirPower charger.

Wimbledon 2017: Cilic shares reason for injury in final against Federer
While Kyrgios will be frustrated, his level during the week augurs well for his Wimbledon prospects. The win was the Croatian's 18th ATP title and just his second win against Djokovic in 16 matches.

The Other Products division, which develops devices such AirPods, complementing the ecosystem of Apple, brought the company in 2017 of $12.9 billion in revenue and compensated for the slowdown in the sector iPhone, reminds Bloomberg. Apple might be working with Tymphany for the new over-the-ear headphones. Apple could release its new over-the-ear headphones as early as late 2018 or by early 2019.

The wireless AirPods are an improvement over the previously popular Apple EarPods which were wired and offered a similar sound signature with crisp audio. Described as a "higher-end alternative to the company's Beats line", the no doubt costly Apple-branded audio accessories should compete against similarly premium Bose or Sennheiser products.

Turkey's Erdogan faces resurgent opposition in twin election test
Opposition parties and NGOs have deployed up to half a million monitors at ballot boxes to ward against possible electoral fraud. They have said election law changes and fraud allegations in the 2017 referendum raise fears about the vote's fairness.

The first product on the docket is the AirPods.

While we don't know much about the second-gen HomePod, the sources note that Apple could be looking to expand its partnership with Foxconn, which mainly helps manufacture the iPhone, and simultaneously lessen its reliance on Inventec, which helped supply AirPods and HomePod. Apple is working on a new version of the HomePod for 2019. An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment.
