As we wait for the official release of the new Apple AirPods, we come across another latest report on Monday that outlines a new Bluetooth SIG certification for the two new AirPod models. The model numbers are A2031 and A2032, which seems to point to a specific model number for each individual truly wireless in-ear headphone.
The listing shows that the device also displays Bluetooth 5.0 as the standard for connection. The current pair of AirPods only features Bluetooth 4.0 compatibility. However, the certification listing doesn’t reveal any features or specifications of the next-generation AirPods. The leaked Bluetooth classification suggests that the new AirPods might have some sort of biometric feature.
The listing was first spotted by MySmartPrice. Earlier last week, renewed trademark filings from Hong Kong and Europe revealed that the new AirPods 2 will come with wellness sensors. However, there’s no report on how these sensors will function.
The certification site additionally reveals that the new Apple AirPods 2 will come with Bluetooth 5.0 support and offer more than just audio. The new AirPods 2 is expected to come with several health features, in fact, some previously leaked reports also suggested that Apple will add features like biometrics and noise cancellation to its new AirPods 2.
As of now, there’s no launch date revealed for the AirPods 2 but the first AirPods were added to the database on November 20, 2016, ahead of a December 13, 2016 launch date. If Apple follows the same timeline, we could see new AirPods in late November or early December.
