Trademark filings hint at wireless EarPods, two new Apple Watch models

Russian trademark filings uncovered by mobiltelefon.ru show identifiers for 10 different individual versions of Apple Watch and wireless headphones referred to as “AirPods” designed for use with the iPhone 7. A leaked video of EarPods featuring a Lightning connector has led to speculation that Apple may package those with the iPhone 7, since they’re rumored to have done away with the 3.5mm headphone jack. These latest filings hint that Apple may be offering its first version of wireless earbuds for users who want to ditch the cord all together. The AirPods name implies that the accessory will be a first-party accessory, not branded through the company’s Beats label. But whether they’ll be in the box with the iPhone or sold separately is an open question.

The discovery of 10 different filings for Apple Watch hardware seems to support predictions that Apple will offer two versions of the device, but even with Apple Watch Sport, Apple Watch and Apple Watch Edition variants for two models, there’s still room for speculation about what the rest of the options could be. The filings also included model numbers for the two new iPhones expected to be revealed next week. [via 9to5Mac]
