AirPods 3: It looks like Apple may be planning to launch new AirPods later this year, reports MacRumors. According to recent rumors, the tech company is planning to have the AirPods 3 ready for the 2019 holiday shopping season. The rumor says that these new earbuds will feature water and dust resistance. The current versions of the AirPods don’t offer this, which makes them less than ideal for use while working out. Other rumors claim this update isn’t coming out until next year.
New iPads: Apple is apparently preparing to put out several new iPad tablets this year, 9to5Mac notes. Regulatory filings overseas have the company planning to release five new tablets.
