The 2018 hardware refresh would include not only an improved W chip (possibly the W2 added to the Apple Watch last year, or perhaps even a W3) the notable point is it will also carry the ability to activate Siri just by voice, rather than by physically tapping the AirPod in your ear, similar to the way iPhone and HomePod users invoke the virtual assistant.
Like with Amazon’s Echo devices or the iPhone, a user would be able to trigger the virtual assistant simply by saying the wake word aloud – “Hey Siri,” in this case. That would indeed to a step-up in terms of shifting AirPods to a voice-first interface device.
The idea behind the second iteration of AirPods said to be coming in 2019, is for the headphones to “survive splashes of water and rain”, although they likely won’t be designed to be submerged in water, according to Bloomberg‘s sources.
The last year Apple’s AirPods update did well, so reviving the update cycle seems coherent and need of time. it’s just like Apple keep updating its iPhone and other of Apple’s high-demand products.
it’s kinda alluring to observe the change in a number of users with this update and all other upcoming amends as they do with other high selling devices of the company.
Pay Warm welcome to this intelligent tech update 😉
