Increased Water Resistance
Apple’s upcoming higher-tier AirPods are also rumored to sport some type of enhanced water resistance. That’ll be a major upgrade compared to current-generation AirPods, which don’t have any type of water resistance rating at all.
Don’t expect them to be swim-proof, however. Most current rumors suggest that they’ll simply be resistant to splashes of sweat or rain. There’s also no word on whether they’ll actually have an official IP rating — or what that rating will be.
