In line with the rumors, Apple apparently deliberate to launch three AirPods fashions this yr. Through the early a part of the yr, Apple launched the AirPods 2, however apparently there are plans to launch two extra within the later a part of the yr. That is in accordance with notable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Kuo claims that one mannequin might be an iterative replace to AirPods whereas the opposite is rumored to be an even bigger replace with a model new design, water-resistance, and energetic noise-cancelling. Now in accordance with a report from DigiTimes, Apple’s next-gen AirPods are mentioned to be deliberate for manufacturing as early as October.
At this level it’s unclear as to which mannequin this might be, however there’s a good likelihood that this might be the iterative replace mannequin. It’s because in accordance with a Bloomberg report, the AirPods with noise-cancellation and a brand new design will most likely solely arrive in 2020. We’re unsure why Apple would launch an up to date AirPods this yr, particularly for the reason that AirPods 2 was launched about half a yr in the past.
Take this report with a grain of salt for now, particularly with DigiTimes’ observe report in the case of Apple-related rumors. Within the meantime, Huawei has really crushed Apple to the punch in the case of noise-cancelling earbuds with the FreeBuds three that was launched at IFA 2019 final week.
