An updated version of the Apple Airpods has been expected for a 2019 release for some time, however, it is speculated the second iteration of the popular earbuds is set to arrive within the first six months of this year.

The Apple AirPod 2 is speculated to include biometric sensors that allow the buds to dual function as a fitness tracker as well, according to a patent filed in July. It would also be able to measure stroke volume that allows it to calculate a user’s cardiac output. These features fall in line with the health features highlighted in the new Apple Watch Series 4. This patent was followed by rumors of the next Airpods that are waterproof as well as having noise-canceling capabilities and improved Siri communication.

In related Apple news, the company is inviting iPhone users to compete in a “Shot on iPhone” challenge.
