Evidence Suggests Apple’s ‘AirPods’ Could Happen, We Just Don’t Know WhenBy cheatmaster 04:49 Wed, 04 Aug 2021 Comments
With leaks continually recommending that the iPhone 7 could be released without a 3.5mm headphone jack, the concept of Apple releasing fully wireless ear buds isn’t entirely impossible. In fact, the tech giant has filed trademarks in the US with the name “AirPods”.
MacRumors performed some research and found that the agency who files patents for Apple has recently submitted paperwork signed by an Apple employee. This document was spotted just one day before the 6 month deadline to respond to a request to clarify some broad descriptions of what the tradeimprint name covers.
This could mean that Apple is still interested in keeping the tradeimprint name instated and perhaps could mean that the company indeed intends to create these AirPods. Apple took its time to respond likely to create time before the product could be developed. (The exact details of the filings including signatures and documents can be found in the source link)
Wireless earbuds aren’t cheap and, well, we are dealing with Apple here, so it’s quite likely (if the product was to actually come to fruition) that these “AirPods probably won’t be bundled with an iPhone. The iPhone 7 could be bundled with some EarPods that connect via Lightning port.
