Priced at $249, and the earphones will start shipping on Oct. 30, Apple said, adding that the new AirPods are also sweat-and water-resistant.

The company is doubling down on wearables and the services units in order to increase revenues, as it faces a slow down in iPhone sales in the last quarter.
