Smart Hearables... Apple 'AirPods'

In September 2015, Apple filed a trademark for a wireless "airpods" version of its bundled EarPods

According to sources at  9To5Mac  the earbuds - which are rumoured to launch alongside the iPhone 7 will be completely wireless and will feature a noise cancelling microphone to make calls and command Siri.

Earlier reports indicate that the iPhone 7 will not have a headphone jack and the Airpods will connect via the Lightning port. To charge the AirPods, users need to place them in a charging box that contains a rechargeable battery. 

The iPhone 7 is expected to launch later on this year.

Chances are they will be sold separately and not given away with every iPhone. Well what did you expect, this is Apple.
