It has become a bit of a tradition for Apple to make some "slips" (no doubt some of them purposeful) when it releases new beta versions of its various operating systems.
This time, on the newly released iOS 13.2 beta, Brazilian developer Guilherme Rambo found a cone of what they seem to be New Active Noise Canceling AirPods.
The image in question, while not in HD, gives us a good idea of what the new AirPods line-up design might look like. It can be seen that the new model will be in-ear (in-ear) and that your "little leg" is much shorter than the current one.
References found in iOS 13.2 beta point out that users can obviously turn noise cancellation on or off as they see fit through what is today referred to as “focus mode” (Focus mode).
Rumors of new noise-canceling AirPods have been around for a long time, and unfortunately it was not yet in its second generation that the feature landed. On the other hand, the expectation was to see something more in the style of big headphones (supra-ear style, perhaps), and something compact like that. Not bad news, of course.
Still according to the 9to5Mac, this new model of AirPods has internal code B298.

Mark Gurman of Bloombergalso complemented by stating that the new model will be water resistant:
It is possible that these new AirPods will be released later this year.
