Apple To Launch Airpods 2 By Mid-Year

Just to change, the news comes from the authoritative colleagues of 9to5Mac, who have stumbled upon a secret screen of the beta iOS 12.2 that allows you to configure the voice start of Siri through the AirPods. Also, it's unclear whether Apple is waiting for AirPower to be ready before bringing AirPods 2 to market.

The first beta of iOS 12.2 contains strong indications that we are approaching the launch of new AirPods.

The next generation of Apple AirPods are expected to be unveiled during the first half of 2019.

The White House has identified 17 priorities for building barriers to discourage illegal crossings. The deal resolved the crippling 35-day closure but not the fight over his proposed border wall.

This screen notes that users can talk to Siri with AirPods or iPhone by saying 'Hey, Siri, ' a feature that is reportedly included in the often-rumoured second-generation headphones. As per the listing on the site, the AirPods 2 will come with the latest Bluetooth standard - the Bluetooth 5.0.

Along with the brand new health monitoring features, Apple will also refine the design of the earbuds.

Now, it seems the AirPods 2 themselves will perform the speech recognition, making them a much more powerful prospect than previously. After all, each iOS update goes through several stages before being rolled out to the public, so people could be looking for a month or two, perhaps even longer. Last June, Bloomberg reported that the Cupertino brand was in preparation for a slight AirPods revamp that has new chip and "Hey Siri" support to be released by the end of 2018. That's already ancient in tech years, where products usually get upgraded every year. It was widely expected that Apple would launch the latest iteration at the iPhone XS event held past year but it made a no-show on the grand stage.
