Apple AirPods Likely to be Revamped with New Features in 2019

AirPods

The Apple AirPods are almost two years old and the Cupertino giant still hasn't released a new version. The AirPods came out in 2016.

Further, Kuo forecasts that Apple is planning a major design upgrade for the AirPods, ready for launch in early 2020.

Kuo writes that their "growth momentum" will be the "fastest among Apple products" and that they will grow by almost 80% and 90% over 2018 and 2019.

Additionally, the analyst predicted strong growth in sales of AirPods. A new W-series chip has also reported to be found in the next AirPods, and we believe that this will allow for faster pairing with iPhones and iPads.

AirPods are today one of the most popular wireless headphones. The former is more likely to have such capabilities, though.

In order to support the thermal requirements of wireless charging, the case hinge will be redesigned causing a cost increase of that particular component of 60%. Incidentally, we've also seen reports that the next-gen version of AirPods will include noise cancellation features, improved water resistance, and hands-free support for "Hey Siri". The technology means you can rest your iPhone on a charging pad and not have to plug it in to juice the battery. That revision will have an unspecified "all-new design", Kuo said. The earphones themselves could very well get redesigned. It may also have better integration with Apple Watch. As always, take everything with a grain of salt. AirPower was rumored to debut in September, but we haven't seen any announcement yet. It was introduced in April 2017 as a device that can charge up to three wireless charging-capable devices at a time, but Apple hasn't said anything about it since. "This summer, reports suggested that AirPower's release was pushed back due to ".

Apple and its history of promises is a rocky road filled with delayed products, cover-ups, and false timelines.
