The report also resisted claims concerning the launching of brand new’ Apple AirPods’ after this year. Formerly, a tipster had suggested that Apple might establish AirPods X later in 2020.
According to Kuo as cited by an Apple Insider report, Apple will most likely keep older layouts from the new AirPods and AirPods Pro. However, the new-generation AirPods are thought to adopt”system-in-package (SIP) design, rather than a printed circuit board,” that will aim to create the earbuds slimmer and faster. When the rumors are true, it will not come as a surprise as Apple retained its old design (seen in the first-generation AirPods) using their newest AirPods too. Notably, the AirPods that came out in 2019 had many internal upgrades that enabled an enhanced audio quality, battery life, together with other capabilities.
To remember, Apple introduced that the second-generation AirPods in March 2019 that seemed almost identical to the first-generation AirPods, which were launched at 2016. Nevertheless, the second-generation AirPods came with significant internal updates like H1 sound chip, hands-free’Hey Siri’ voice assistant feature, and more. In the same way, the AirPods Pro that were started at November 2019, also looked mostly the same, barring the new silicon tips, with the previous AirPods. However, the significant upgrade in this one was the busy noise-cancellation feature.
Meanwhile, a tipster earlier this month suggested that Apple is growing new Airpods, specifically AirPods X which will be targetted towards fitness fans. The AirPods X has been assumed to be positioned somewhere between the AirPods (2nd Gen) and AirPods Pro. But, Kuo believes that the launch of new AirPods in 2020″is unlikely”. Additionally, the analyst believes that Apple resources are”confusing the layout process using a Beats product.”
Last, Kuo has also implied that due to the book coronavirus pandemic, the shipments of the second-generation AirPods are likely to fall in the next quarter of 2020. On the other hand, he suggested that AirPods Pro imports will probably grow by around 70 percent from the next quarter,”thanks to replacement demand and the brand new functionality of this device.”
