Apple will reportedly release over-ear headphones this year

Rumor: Apple Pondering Premium Branded Headphones

Apple said to be working on high-end over-ear headphones, says KGI analyst

According to a report by Bloomberg, Apple's forthcoming iOS 12 mobile operating will bring a new tool dubbed as Digital Health, which enables parents to monitor the time their kids spend on their iPad and iPhones. We believe that after AirPods and HomePod, Apple's next addition will be high-end over-ear headphones, making its acoustic accessory lineup more complete.

When it comes to Apple, it is the only brand which keeps on appearing in the rumor mill quite often. Besides all that, it is said that Apple is actually working on brand new over-the-ear headphones to be released in 2018 as well. The report goes on today that the new 'phones might be as ready as the fourth quarter of this year. It's possible that Apple's own branded headphones could co-exist with Beats, but this rumored move could also be signalling the beginning of the end for Beats. Lately this morning, we have gathered all predictions and anticipations about the upcoming Apple's iPad models which the company registered as "tablets".

The Bluetooth headphones include an Apple-built W1 chipset that handles seamless pairing with compatible iOS devices. The components for the new AirPods, however, will be supplied from Unitech, Compeq, TXC, and HLJ, said Kuo. Although, there have not been any issues reported with the current set-up, just saying the magic phrase "Hey Siri" would be a welcome change.

Apple AirPods, which were launched about two years back, are one of the most successful products of the company. Moreover, the company is also expected to release an updated version of AirPods in the second half of 2018.
