KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has stated that Apple will look to make inroads into the Bluetooth headphone market.
According to MacRumours, Kuo said Apple was working on a Bluetooth-like communication chip and its own Bluetooth headphones.
This follows reports that Apple will remove the headphone jack from the iPhone 7.
The company is also working on wireless earphones, stated the report, which may be released today alongside the iPhone 7.
The “AirPods” are expected to look very similar to the Bragi Dash earbuds – pictured above.
The AirPods will be targeted at the high-end market, above Apple’s Beats headphone range.
