Apple has just launched new Airpods. The second generation of Ma wireless headphones come with occasional enhancements, including a new H1 chip (providing 50% more talk time), Ea, Siri controller support and a separately sold wireless recharge case. But it looks like we will see new AirPods coming in 2019 at least Ming Chi Kuo (famous analyst with great sources in Ma's supply chain) and the DigiTimes.
Ming Chi Kuo
In a note to investors, Apple's Me Dinh of the Apple world stated that we will see two new models of AirPods coming in late 2019 or early 2020.
One would basically be an upgrade from the current one and keep the same price (whether we are talking about the price with or without the wireless recharge case), while the second would come with a new design and higher price.
And stopped by: Kuo gave no other clue what we might see of news in these two models. Past rumors, however, mean that at some point the AirPods will gain a new, less slippery finish, a black option, noise cancellation, among other things.
From a production standpoint, the analyst said Apple changed the way AirPods are manufactured by adopting an “integrated system design” that aims to reduce the failure rate during product assembly, also saving space and lowering cost. of production. Apple's partners in this venture would be Luxshare, Goertek, and Amkor.
Kuo bets on Ma selling 52 million units of AirPods in 2019, rising to 75-85 million in 2020.
The Asian vehicle said Apple would launch the third generation of AirPods in late 2019, with noise cancellation, and Taiwanese Inventec would be largely responsible for production, with some orders also going to China's Luxshare Precision.
How Apple does it, no one knows. But as we have pointed out, this is not the first time people supposedly familiar with Apple's plans talk about such capable AirPods, so the company is probably even trying to develop such a feature to put on its famous wireless headphones.
If the noise cancellation arrives at the third generation of AirPods by the end of 2019, the other story is already because, as we know, the history of the DigiTimes not the most reliable (even if it includes some good hits).
