Without any rumors or anticipation, our first view at Beats new earbuds came out of nowhere with the release of iOS 14.6. Hidden between the Release Candidate versions of Apple’s new software, we got some renders and high quality images of them, reported by journalist Steve Moser.

After finding these renders in the last few days, we have gotten a slew of new details and pictures of these new totally wireless earbuds by the Apple owned company.
First, came the FCC filing. This confirmed the existence and name of the earbuds, as well as some details about them. The official product model numbers are set to be A2512 and A2513, according to the FCC ID website.
But then, news outlet MySmartPrice, with a 100% positive track record on AppleTrack, leaked live pictures of the new earbuds yesterday, as of the writing of this article. These show a 1:1 match with the FCC filing shown before, confirming the design of the Studio Buds and the fact that production has started.
And if if that wasn’t enough, LeBron James, professional NBA player and Beats Ambassador was spotted with the white version of the Studio Buds on one of his recent Instagram posts.
While there are some specific features we don’t know about, these will be similar in functionality to AirPods Pro, with silicone tips and the H1 chip. According to Moser, these will retail for around $200 USD. But we are still waiting out for official information about the price and features of Beats Studio Buds.
By now, it feels extremely uncommon from Beats to leave this product in the wild without a proper announcement. This just makes us think that we will get our first official look in the upcoming weeks.
In the meantime, we will keep our readers updated about the latest leaks, rumors and news about Apple and the industry.
