Evidence suggests Apple's ‘AirPods' could happen, we just don't know when

With leaks continually suggesting that the iPhone 7 could be released without a 3.5mm headphone jack, the idea of Apple releasing fully wireless ear buds isn’t entirely impossible. In fact, the tech giant has filed trademarks in the US with the name “AirPods”.

MacRumors performed some research and found that the agency who files patents for Apple has recently submitted paperwork signed by an Apple employee. This document was spotted just one day before the 6 month deadline to respond to a request to clarify some broad descriptions of what the trademark name covers.
