Apple planning implants for third-generation AirPods
CUPERTINO, CALIFORNIA — Apple may have just dropped its much anticipated second-generation AirPods, but according to Wired, the third-generation iterations could be the real game-changers.
According to 9to5Mac, Apple engineers have been working on radical new design method, which involves implanting AirPods subcutaneously into the ear canal.
According to TechCrunch, Apple stores in select cities like New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Chicago have begun outfitting facilities to handle the implant procedure.
The third-generation AirPods will be designed with the new Apple H2 wireless chip, which delivers clearer and crisper acoustic sounds.
Battery life lasts approximately 13 hours on a single charge, but when paired with the Apple Pillow wireless charger or AirPoles wireless zones, recharging only takes 10 minutes.
The AirPod 3s supports hands-free Siri, as well as the option to change the voice setting to a female Siri, a male Siri, a cis trans non non binary Siri or an otherkin Siri.
Apple plans to offer the third-gen AirPods for $1099.
The release date has yet to be announced, but many analysts believe they could hit the market as early as late 2019.
