Apple AirPod is in the hot news lately. As it has already been years since the company released the first version. A lot of people have already owned this wireless earphone that can be automatically paired with iPads, Macs, Siri and most of all iPhones. 

AirPods are known to be interesting however pricey. It is Apple's substitute for wired headphones. They introduced this new product with some practical feature. Of which is that, it can automatically pause the music once the user removes the earbud. Thus, the competition for Apple is quite heating up already. Big companies such as Samsung has introduced some compelling substitute.

Now, Apple is speculated to be working on two new sets of AirPods. It is rumored to have a slight update that could launch later this year. It will have a Bluetooth upgrade and support for wireless charging. Also, a revamped model will be released by 2020, as per Minh-Chi Kuo who is a reliable analyst with TF international Securities, according to Business Insider.

Thus, Apple has already focused on health with their Apps, in recent years. It is seemed possible for the company to work with similar features into the wireless headphones. However, it is still not clear if the company has a plan of doing so, but according to Bloomberg, this may not be impossible. 

As follows, consumers would love to see features such as putting into the AirPod's dual-beamforming microphones to additional use. This is to call on Siri without tapping the earbud. Also, given its smooth button-less design, consumers will feel more natural to call on Siri by speaking compare to tapping.

In line, Apple has been looking at the possibility to turn the Apple Watch into a separate device quite than an iPhone partner. Thus, AirPods is not far from being independent. Also, the company already has a phone that is water-resistant and so is their watch. So, it is not impossible for them to have their wireless pods to be water-resistant also. Especially when the consumers wear it outside and a sudden rain will happen. 

Furthermore, Airp\Pods can be used everywhere depending on the consumer and using it on the public is very common. Thus, Apple should step up their game. The company sells one color options and it is only white. the competitors on the other hand, especially Samsung just announces that their Galaxy buds will be available in yellow, black and white.
