Rumor Has It- Apple's New EarPods Will Have a Health Monitoring Component

Secret, the new platform for sharing secrets anonymously, is known for having all kinds of rumors circulate about any new technology that is being planned or developed. This time “rumor has it” Apple's EarPods will have biometric sensors built in to measure the wearer’s heart rate and blood pressure. The new earphones will feature a redesigned remote and a microphone with even better noise cancellation. Also, they will include iBeacon sensors that will prevent them from getting misplaced.

Even though it is just a rumor, and has yet to be confirmed by Apple, this product is even more interesting because of the patent applications that Apple has had on this device throughout the years.

Firstly, starting back in March 2007, Apple applied to the U.S. Patent Office for a patent that proposed the use of sensors integrated into various accessories, or even devices themselves, to collect physiological data.

Adding to the rumor, their first patent application dating back to February was a biometric headphone system that can measure temperature, heart rate, and perspiration levels. As Apple points out, “the headphone unit may be wired or wireless, with the latter leveraging Bluetooth connectivity to transfer data back to the host device like an iPhone.”

 

Lastly, there comes their latest patent application in April, a “headphone device that can recognize a user's voice, activates multiple on-board microphones, turns on a noise suppression system, and directs beamforming mics toward a user's head.”

So, should we take this rumour seriously? Only time will tell. Having had so many patent applications by Apple that haven’t made it to a final product makes this patent questionable as well. However, taking into consideration Apple's dedication to health and the activity-tracking research that it has been doing, this is one likely patent that might finally come to fruition.
