Bloomberg just flipped the lid on a bunch of Apple‘s hardware plans, including the 2019 iPhones and the all-important fashion accessory – the AirPods.

The 2020 model should come with one feature that Apple fans have been clamoring for, noise cancellation.

Noise-canceling AirPods are coming in 2020

So among the usual leaks of Apple’s upcoming hardware, was a section with information about upcoming accessories. That includes things like a cheaper HomePod, with fewer speakers inside, and revamps of the Apple Watch with new casings.

Their sources also added a few snippets of AirPod knowledge, as the bulk of the tips were to the iPhone/iPad/Mac ranges.

New features of the next-gen AirPods will include:

  • Water-resistance (although to what IP level is unknown still)
  • Noise cancellation (hopefully active and not just passive with some silicone ear tips)
  • A higher price than the current $159 MSRP

Noise cancelation would go perfectly with the new waterproofing for gym use. Then all Apple needs to fix is how easily they drop out of most people’s ears…
