the latest rumors of all versions

Details, possible release date, updates and other rumors of the new AirPods.

The AirPods have been a success, and with them, Apple has dominated the headphone market in recent years, which is why there are more and more rumors and the hype among the followers does not stop increasing, and one of the most repeated questions is: when will we have the new generations of apple headphones?

When will the AirPods Pro 2 be released?

A month ago it was rumored that the AirPods Pro 2 might be available by the end of the year; that rumor remains and besides, it is possible that Apple will not change the design of the headphones, or at least not too much.

As believed, possibly the second generation of AirPods Pro will keep its current designbut with a little touch up on the tips of the ears.

On the other hand, the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo – who has a huge track record of success – and Mark Gurman, from Bloomberg. They agreed that the design of the headphones could be similar to the design of the Beats Studio Buds.

As for his sensors for training, it was rumored that could include sensors to monitor respiratory rate according to a Apple and Cornell researchers reportwhere they used continuous listening technology with which the respiratory rate could be passively estimated even in very noisy environments, being a very cost-effective way of doing it compared to traditional healthcare.

However, later the rumor was dismissed by Gurman. So we shouldn’t expect the new AirPods Pro 2 to bring health sensors this generation.

Other details we know about the AirPods Pro 2

USB-C y Lightning

Is Apple excited to switch to USB-C?

Now Let’s talk about the charging case of the new AirPods. Its thickness is expected to be the same (21 millimeters), but this time, it will be 46 mm high and 54 mm wide, which if we compare it with the current AirPods Pro charging case, it will be a little taller and less wide, since the latter have dimensions of 45.2 mm high and 60.6 mm wide.

Kuo indicated that Apple could make the jump from Lightning to USB-C in terms of its charging cases by 2023. For this reason, it is possible that AirPods 2 models released in 2022 include a Lightning portor at least that is what is expected.

AirPods Pro 2 will have a “significantly improved” chip

The changes of the AirPods Pro 2 will be more noticeable inside

According to what Kuo and Gurman indicated in December, the new models will have an improved chip and will also be able to support the Apple Lossless format (ALAC). Additionally, support for the LC3 codec in the AirPods Max beta firmware hints that AirPods Pro 2 could be the first to add Bluetooth 5.2 support.

And finally, we also hope that the charging case is capable of emitting a sound so that users can locate them more easily, in case of losses.

When will the AirPods Max be released?

Although we will surely be a little disappointed, Apple has no plans to launch a second generation of the high-end models of the AirPods Max for now.

Many users had faith that Apple would offer a new generation of these headphones, as the company launched support for Lossless quality with Apple Music last June. This gave the idea that a new version was possible, since the AirPods Max are technically not capable of playing audio in this quality, even through a wired connection.

Since the AirPods Max recently turned a year old, we do not expect a new version in a while, but what is possible is that Apple plans to release new colors for this version soon. In addition, it has been reported that Apple is working on a higher quality Bluetooth codec, and while this will allow better audio enjoyment, a firmware update is needed. hardware in order to maximize this potential.

When will the AirPods 4 be released?


Will we see the next generation soon?

There is not much information about the new AirPods 4, since Apple launched the AirPods 3 in October last year, with a renewed design, with a design without silicone tips, unlike the AirPods Pro.

Recall that October headphones they do not have ANC or transparency modealthough this version has achieved an increase in bass, or at least that is what the company indicates.

Also, they have a autonomy of 6 hours with a single charge and its new MagSafe charging case, and of course we can’t forget the support for Dolby Atmos with Spatial Audio; It has really come with interesting changes. So we hope your update will be this big too.

However, as we mentioned, It’s also unclear when Apple plans to release the next generation. of the AirPods, but due to the introduction of the new codec, it would not be crazy to assume that the new AirPods 4 will support Bluetooth 5.2 and the LC3 codecbut beyond this, there are no rumors or much to comment on.

Other data and some recommendations

As we wait for Apple to introduce its new devices and work on future generations, we need to think about which AirPods are the most suitable for us, since each model is ideal for a different type of user, and making the right choice is the best way to enjoy multimedia content while not hitting our pockets so hard.

On the other hand, it is also interesting to mention that Apple may launch AirPods Pro 2 with new outlets, so that it is possible to facilitate the purchase of these devices. So it will always be more reliable to buy the headphones directly from selected stores, since they are usually highly counterfeit devices, so we will not have the doubt: will they be my original AirPods?

Furthermore, Kuo indicates that Apple is likely to discontinue AirPods Pro after its second launch. This is because Apple will try to solve its error of cannibalizing its own devices, since according to the researcher: “demand for AirPods 3 is significantly weaker than for AirPods 2”. In this way, it would not be a surprise that they apply this strategy to avoid repeating the same mistake.
