The second, more ambitious, pair is expected to launch in 2019 for $159 (the same price as the current model), and feature noise-cancellation and water-resistance, as well as increased wireless range from iOS devices.
In addition to three or four new iPhones, a couple of upgraded iPad Pros with Face ID support, a revised MacBook lineup and a largely mysterious Apple Watch Series 4, several improved AirPods variants and entirely new "studio-quality" over-ear Apple headphones are reportedly in the pipeline.
That product could be released as soon as the end of this year, Bloomberg said. The brand is said to be developing a wireless charging case which will be compatible with the AirPower charger, although the latter is reportedly still facing issues.

Apple is primed to launch new AirPods in 2019 with some big features that should make its toothbrush head-looking buds a whole lot smarter.
They're not flawless, but for a first generation product, they're pretty good. The wireless earbuds are powered by Apple's W1 SoC, provide decent audio quality, and allow you to access the Siri digital assistant without pulling out your iPhone. However, users won't be able to swim wearing them. These were supposed to come out later this year, but they ran into issues and the release was pushed back to early next year.
