Bloomberg: ‘Hey Siri’ Coming to Future AirPods →

Mark Gurman is reporting that the AirPods are due for some exciting updates:

Like with its mobile devices — the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch — Apple intends to frequently update the AirPods with new hardware features. The Cupertino, California-based technology giant is working on a new version for release as soon as this year with an upgraded wireless chip, the people said. A subsequent model for as early as next year is planned to be water resistant, they added, asking not to be identified discussing private product plans.

The model coming as early as this year will let people summon Apple’s Siri digital assistant without physically tapping the headphones by saying “Hey Siri.”

I use Siri some with my AirPods, but really dislike tapping on them when they are in my ear. Is it too much to hope that they come in black this time around?
