Apple is developing a new version of its popular Powerbeats earbuds with support for Hey Siri. Evidence found within iOS 13.3, which was released to the public today, indicates that “Powerbeats4” are likely coming soon.
Strings found within iOS 13.3 explain that you will be able to talk to Siri using the Powerbeats4 by simply saying the “Hey Siri” trigger phrase. This also means that they will likely use Apple’s proprietary H1 chip for connectivity.
Apple currently sells the truly wireless Powerbeats Pro, which also offer “Hey Siri” support. The Powerbeats4 will likely be a lower-end option for customers and come as a followup to the Powerbeats3 wireless in-ear headphones, which are still sold by Apple.
