Apple seems to be working on a new version of its popular wireless earphones – Apple AirPods. This new version will likely be known as Apple AirPods Pro. Another important point here is that the company plans to launch this undeclared version in late October. Additionally, the report also outlined potential pricing for the upcoming AirPods Pro. Talking about the new design, the company claims that Apple will adopt a new “in-year” design. This new design will have the power of the new noise-canceling feature.
Apple AirPods Pro Description
According to a report by MacRumors, all this information came from the China Economic Daily. The report also claims that the new design will “enhance the listening experience”. Beyond this, the company earphones will cost $ 260 (about Rs 18,500). In addition, another report from the same publication indicated that the AirPod Pro would come with a metal design. This design is expected to increase heat dissipation. To prepare for production, Apple AirPods supplier Inventec is said to be working with Chinese manufacturer Lixun.
According to previous reports, Apple will likely roll out two new AirPods models for mass production between Q4 2019 and Q1 2020. These reports have also indicated that Apple will use Luxshare, Goertek and Amkor as primary suppliers. The new information is consistent with information from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Kuo also said that the second model will feature more conservative upgrades with similar pricing. We are unsure whether the company will add any new features to this second edition.
Apple suppliers are also getting ready to start assembly of the next generation AirPods Pro by this month. This possibility means that Apple may launch a new version just before the holiday shopping season in the United States. We’ve also seen references to this redesigned pair of AirPods in the beta version of iOS 13.2. Taking a closer look at the leaked icon, it is likely that they will feature “rubber ear tips”.
