Apple will radically change the design of AirPods and AirPods Pro

According to Bloomberg, Apple plans to release an updated model of AirPods wireless headphones – their design will be improved. The new AirPods model will be released in 2021, the exact date is still unknown.

Bloomberg sources claim that the “base” model AirPods will have about the same design as the more advanced and expensive AirPods Pro – with a short “stalk” for the microphone and replaceable silicone ear pads of different sizes. Active noise cancellation will not appear in this model, but the battery life will be increased.

Apple also wants to redesign the AirPods Pro to be more rounded without a stalk, like most TWS headphones from other manufacturers.

These changes may introduce a bit of confusion, as regular AirPods in the new design will look like AirPods Pro. But the updated AirPods Pro model cannot be confused with other Apple headphones, because they will receive a completely new design and get rid of the case sticking out of the ear, which has been criticized since the release of the very first AirPods.

Bloomberg also reported that Apple has postponed the release of its full-size AirPods Studio headphones. It was originally planned that they will be presented on October 13 along with new smartphones, but they had to be sent for revision. Now Apple engineers are redesigning the headband – it should be more comfortable, comfortable and reliable. AirPods Studio release has been pushed back to late 2020.

Another novelty that, according to insiders, Apple is thinking about is the intermediate model of the HomePod speaker. It should sit between the $ 299 flagship version and the $ 99 mini version. There are no details about this device yet.
