The company has already removed audio products from Bose, Sonos, and Logitech

According to reports, Apple may venture into the over-ear headphone market following the success of its AirPods.

Bloomberg reported that since Apple has removed headphones and speakers made by companies such as Bose, Logitech, and Sonos, it is likely the vendor will extend its own audio range.

While this isn’t concrete evidence, Apple stopped selling Fitbit products in 2014 before launching the highly successful Apple Watch.

Business Insider has revealed that Apple had told them its stores offer a selection of third-party accessories meant to help customers get the most out of their Apple devices. The company also said it often changes its offerings as new third-party products are released.

Apple’s AirPods and beats have already shipped 23.7 million units in the second quarter according to statistics garnered by the International Data Corporation.

Appetite for Apple audio products is at an all-time high, and it could be as early as October 13 where Apple unveils its newest audio device.
