The report has a new HomePod, updated high-end AirPods, and all-new over-ear headphones shipping at some point in 2019.

The next-generation version of AirPods, which are slated for a release sometime next year, could include several new features over its predecessor, sources familiar with Apple's plans told Bloomberg. AirPods are a part of it: Apple is making them water-resistant so they're less vulnerable to sweat, and building in noise cancellation, although that won't be arriving until 2019.

Canada votes to legalise recreational cannabis
Erik Altieri, the executive director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, echoed Hetzer's sentiment. So far, the United States has yet to respond to Canada's historic move to make marijuana a part of legitimate commerce.

Apple is also working to increase the distance that AirPods work away from devices like the iPhone or iPad. They will use Apple branding and be a higher-end alternative to the company's Beats line. Apple's audio products aren't considered "audiophile", and these new headphones could appeal to Apple users that want better sound quality.

While none of this is unexpected as such, the timescales may be of note. Specifics as far as the release schedule weren't offered in the report, but it's possible that Apple itself doesn't know exactly when the new products will be ready. Apple said Other Products revenue was up 38% year-over-year in its second quarter, reaching almost $4 billion in total revenue for the period. "During the development of the iPhone X, Apple weighed removing the wired charging system entirely". Two years later, Apple bought headphone maker and streaming-music company Beats for $3 billion, its largest acquisition. Apple is said to be dealing with Tymphany, the audio subsidiary of computer peripheral manufacturer Primax Electronics, to produce the new model.

Iran to reject Saudi-Russia proposal to increase oil production

On the one hand, Apple's Amazon Echo competitor, the HomePod, was delayed quite a bit following its announcement.

Apple is reportedly working on a number of more ambitious features as well. The current HomePod was built with Inventec but production has since expanded to Foxconn. The production however, has not been started.
