Apple’s Next Gen Airpods

Even seven years after their initial release, AirPods are still among Apple’s best-selling goods. Now, the business might be getting ready to improve the market even more by bringing some significant improvements to its well-liked wireless earbuds.

Mark Gurman of Bloomberg claims that Apple is developing a number of ground-breaking capabilities for AirPods. Advanced hearing health features have been integrated, allowing AirPods to evaluate a user’s hearing capacities through a specialized hearing test. This is a big addition. The earbuds will be able to offer insights about a person’s aural wellness by playing various tones and sounds, much like how the Apple Watch’s ECG app checks for heart issues.

Apple is looking for ways to offer AirPods as an alternative to conventional hearing aids in addition to hearing health. Apple is actively working on integrating hearing-aid-like functions into its wireless earphones in order to compete in the $10 billion hearing aid business.

With AirPods, Apple is also stepping into the world of health monitoring. The business is looking into adding sensors to the earbuds so they can assess body temperature through the wearer’s ear canal. This method is thought to be more precise than the wrist-based temperature monitoring that is currently used in Apple Watch models while they sleep.

According to the rumor, Apple would be able to use this data from body temperature monitoring to not only track fertility but also to identify early symptoms of illnesses like colds and other disorders. This functionality, according to the report, is still in the engineering stage.
