Bloomberg report reveals three new Apple products launching next year

The pricier model is expected to feature noise-cancelling technology, as well as water resistance. "During the development of the iPhone X, Apple weighed removing the wired charging system entirely".

Sources familiar with the matter tell Bloomberg that Apple is actively developing new AirPods featuring noise-cancellation and water resistance.

Apple is also said to be internally thinking about adding biometric sensors for new AirPods, including a heart-rate monitor. It's hard to get that much expertise in audio engineering in one place, even when you've got Apple's giant pile of money, and Apple may be relying on their name and the fact that you have to use wireless headphones or that bad dongle with your iPhone. These are supposed to cost more than the current models that cost $159 and could be coming in 2019. This morning, Bloomberg reported that the company plans to double down with a set of new devices that could launch as early as next year.

Apple is reportedly working on a trio of improved audio products that'll take existing offerings to the next level.

The over-ear headphones will reportedly have higher sound quality than Apple's Beats line.

Apple is also working to increase the distance that AirPods work away from devices like the iPhone or iPad.

There's likely to be another pair of headphones on the way from Apple.

New headphones and a HomePod, too?

Apple expects to launch another version of the HomePod by next year, Bloomberg said.

Finally, the Bloomberg report claims that there is potentially a new HomePod smart speaker on the way.

It doesn't include any details about the product's price or features, however. Unlike Beats headphones, they'll be Apple-branded and marketed as a higher end kind of headphones in comparison to the already exorbitantly priced Beats headphones.

Apple didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
