Apple is also rumoured to working on a second-generation pair of AirPod earbuds, which include an always-on Siri.

Apple has some very popular headphones on the market already with its Beats subsidiary being one of the hottest brands out there.

According to Kuo, the iPhone maker wants the headphones to offer high-quality sound and be "convenient" like AirPods as well. So, the question remains: is Apple creating these headphones with its own branding or using the Beats brand?

Since we do not have any idea about the design of the new headphones, it is not clear to us what Kuo meant by the "all-new" design that these new headphones would sport. The AirPods, Apple's Bluetooth earphones which do away with wires between the two earpieces completely, have been a stand-out win for the Cupertino firm, and are still in high demand even a year after they first went on sale.

Kuo has heard that Apple is working with metal injection molding company SZS. The components for the new AirPods, however, will be supplied from Unitech, Compeq, TXC, and HLJ, said Kuo.

However, the expected design language of the device is not yet known. These would be wireless and will also possibly incorporate AirPods wireless chip, reports Gizbot. The new chip would further improve the connection between the iPhone and headphones to make it more reliable. Currently, to activate the personal assistant, one needs to click on the AirPods. Expectedly, the headphone will be more expensive than the AirPods.

Rumours indicate that it could debut alongside the company's AirPower wireless charging mat for iPhones, Apple Watches, and AirPods in late March. The users will now be able to activate the little helper simply by saying the phrase "Hey Siri". Also, its ease of use and relatively affordable pricing is a major reason for its success.
