Apple plans to release an updated, second-generation AirPods Pro this fall, Bloomberg reported. First launched in 2016, Apple Airpods captured the market and created a whole segment of headphones.
In addition to the new design, the new generation AirPods Pro will also have improved sound quality and some possible health integration, Bloomberg Said columnist Mark Gourmet in his report.
“Expect new AirPods Pro in the fall (September-October in India),” Gourmet wrote in his column.
“The current model has been on the market since the fall of 2019, so the batteries already probably have problems with some first-time users. Also note the upgrade of the AirPods Max with new colors (and hopefully the price drop – $ 550 for these headphones is absurd) ”.
AirPods Pro has not been redesigned since its launch in 2019. Now, according to rumors, Apple is finally ready to step back and launch a new version.
Gourmet’s report on the autumn launch is consistent with information previously shared by Apple analyst Min-Chi Kuo, who said that any launch will take place in the second half of the year. The redesigned AirPods Pro can have a more compact design that removes the stock, combined with a new charging case and lossless sound support via the new protocol.
However, it is expected that the technology giant from Cupertino will not work on the second generation AirPods Max. Overhead headphones were released in December 2020. Instead, they say, the company is working on new color options. Gourmet said new colors are still being worked on. He also did not specify the date of the expected launch date.
Apple may offer some tips at the 2022 World Developers Conference (WWDC) in June. The annual event is Apple’s biggest show and will be held almost this year. Apple is showcasing the new features of iOS 16, designed for the year of release of the iPhone 14 series.
