Is Apple to introduce wearable technology in next gen headphones?
Apple’s long awaited break into wearable technology is reported to be close to an end and not with the iWatch as many would have thought – although this is still likely to happen. Instead it is thought Apple will release a new range of headphones with their next gen gadgets, which will incorporate sensors to measure heart rate and blood pressure.
This information was picked up by an anonymous post on the website Secret, where other undisclosed information spilled out from commenter’s including iBeacon also being featured to help those who loose their headphones. Some of the people commenting are reportedly those who were let go by the company last week. It is also claimed that Apple are working on the iWatch and iOS 8 which will include the new Healthbook and feature on the next version of the iPhone and iPad.
Many people will ignore the information since the website allows commenter’s to be completely anonymous. However the site has been credited for a number of leaks in the past which have turned out to be spot on, including Nike Fuelband being discontinued, Google+ chief Vic Gundotra leaving as well as others.
It must be taken into account that this is not the most ludicrous idea as well, considering rivals Samsung recently released a heart-rate monitor with their latest Galaxy S5.
Apple refused to comment on the rumours, so for now we will just have to wait and see.
