Apple officially announced today that it will be offering free AirPods to customers who purchase the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini during an India-exclusive promotion.
AirPods will be presented to all residents and visitors of India who buy any model of iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini from October 7 to November 4, 2021. Apple did not specify what kind of headphones it is going to give users. It is not known if this is the first or second generation AirPods, however, an advertising poster has confirmed that these are standard AirPods and not AirPods Pro.
The second-generation AirPods were introduced in 2019 with the Apple H1 SoC and improved connectivity. The second generation Apple AirPods have 5 hours of talk time and 24 hours with the charging case.
As it became known, the standard delivery of the iPhone 13 in France includes EarPods.
AirPods Pro 2 showed on renders. The headphones will remain virtually unchanged, but the charging case will receive built-in speakers.
A source specializing in leaks about various Apple devices has published renders of possible Air Pods Pro 2 headphones. The person who merged the pictures said that they were obtained from “a source within Apple”, but without any specifics on this score. But if AirPods Pro 2 really will be as shown in the images, then we will have the usual shape of the headphones themselves and a modernized case.
There are various rumors regarding the design of AirPods Pro 2: some sources say that there will be no legs, others believe that it will still remain. The leg is present on these renders. And if you consider what the AirPods 3 turned out to be like, it is likely that the current form of Pro headphones will still remain. But one optical sensor has disappeared, but this is not surprising, since in AirPods 3 Apple switched to sensors that detect skin contact. And the same can happen with AirPods Pro 2.
More innovations in the charging case: on the underside of it there are loudspeaker slots. According to an insider, in iOS 16, the Find My function can be applied both to the headphones themselves and to the case. And this is exactly what loudspeakers are for: if the user cannot remember where he put the case, it will be possible to use Find My – and the charging box will start emitting sounds by which it will be possible to determine its location.
Interestingly, on the side edge of the case, there is a metal fastener for the lanyard, which is not in any case of any Apple wireless headphones. And at the moment there are big doubts that it will appear in the production model. There is no specifics regarding the release dates for AirPods 2 Pro, but it is logical to expect a new product as early as next year.
Huawei Unveils Active Noise Canceling Fashion Headphones – FreeBuds Lipstick styled like lipstick
Huawei has introduced an unusual fully wireless Huawei FreeBuds Lipstick in Europe.
The name of the model is quite consistent with reality – the headphones themselves are made in bright red, and the charging case is stylized as a tube of lipstick, and made of stainless steel.
According to the technical characteristics, Huawei FreeBuds Lipstick corresponds to the already familiar FreeBuds 4 model (review) – active noise reduction, up to 24 hours of battery life (including the case), touch control, support for Bluetooth 5.2, 14.3 mm emitters, protection against moisture (IPX4).
Huawei plans to release a limited edition FreeBuds Lipstick at a price of 249 euros, they will be delivered in a specially designed box. This is almost double the price of FreeBuds 4, which are offered for 129 euros.

The Beats Fit Pro headphones we learned about a few days ago are already being tested by celebrities. At least one is Kim Kardashian.
The star was photographed with new Apple headphones, made in pink. For the Cupertino giant, this practice of testing and, at the same time, advertising is not new, if we are talking specifically about the Beats brand.
Beats Fit Pro should receive active noise cancellation, Apple H1 SoC, and autonomy will be six to seven hours for headphones and up to 30 hours with the case. The announcement of the novelty is expected on November 1, but there is no confirmation of this yet.
