AirPods 2 could have 'deeper bass' and support AirPower wireless charging

A new report from My Smart
claims that the
Apple AirPods 2
will boast “superior audio quality” to their
predecessors, but will largely look the same as the
original AirPods

Citing a “trusted source”, Apple has apparently updated the
inner workings of its flagship wireless earbuds to allow for a
“more impressive bass response”, as well as a new coating on the
housing of the earphones for “improved grip”.

My Smart Price says that the new coating could be “similar to
the the one Google uses for its Pixel smartphones.”

The report also further backs up claims that the AirPods 2 will
have biometric sensors, allowing them to double up as a fitness
tracker. Back in July
Apple filed a patent
for biometric sensors which would
allow the AirPods 2 to take on fitness tracking capabilities like
those seen in the Jabra
Elite Wireless
. This followed
another patent filed in March

My Smart Price also suggests that we could be getting some new
color options with the AirPods 2, saying that Apple will be
offering the AirPods 2 in “two colors: Black and White.”

The report doesn’t offer any further news on a AirPods 2 release
date, but a recent report from Digitimes
claims that the Apple AirPods 2 will come out in the first six
months of 2019.

AirPower to the people

The report from My Smart Price also claimed that the
AirPower wireless charging mat
would finally be released in the
next few months, alongside a “wireless charging case for the
first-generation AirPods.”

The source says that Apple is working on a few “exclusive
features” for the AirPower, but that they will “not be available
until iOS 13 is released.” They also claim that, the AirPower
wireless charging pad is “likely to be priced around $150 (£115 /
AU$210) at launch.”

With any rumors, it’s important to take them with a pinch of
salt. Much of what has been reported on the Apple AirPods 2 is of
course, speculation. There has so far been no official comment from
Apple on the Apple AirPods 2, let alone a confirmation of a
released date. Still, everything is pointing to a 2019 release –
when exactly, remains to be seen.
