This year, we are expecting Apple to launch the second generation of AirPods Pro. The new earbuds will have significant features to set themselves apart from the current generation. Now, according to Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, AirPods 2 are launching this fall.
In his latest edition of the Power On newsletter, Gurman states that Apple is gearing up to launch the new AirPods Pro 2, telling readers to look out for the new AirPods Pro in the fall:
“Look out for new AirPods Pro in the fall. The current model has been on the market since fall of 2019, so the batteries are already probably in trouble for some early adopters. Also look out for an AirPods Max refresh with new colors (and, we hope, a price drop—$550 is absurd for those headphones).”
Gurman also notes that Apple is planning to add new colors for AirPods Max – the highest-end audio product in the AirPods family. Finally, he wishes for a price cut for the headphones, saying that $550 is “absurd” for headphones.
Currently, AirPods Max is available in Space Gray, Silver, Green, Pink, and Sky Blue. We expect additional colors would be Red, Yellow, or Purple as these are colors Apple has a history of adding in products such as the iPhone and the iMac.
Numerous rumors cited that Apple will release a new AirPods Pro product in 2022, Twitter user @FronTron claimed that the company is debuting the product during the third quarter of this year. Earlier this year, reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo stated that AirPods Pro 2 will arrive with Lossless Audio as well as a sound-emitting case.
The current AirPods Pro launched back in October 2019, the earbuds feature a new design for each earbud, wireless charging case, active noise cancellation, transparency mode, and interchangeable silicone tips.
