The next generation of Apple AirPods should reach consumers with a new look. The expectation, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo on Friday (22), is that the AirPods 3 will bring the design of the AirPods Pro. Apple’s wireless headphones are due to be launched in 2021.
The analyst’s information was released by the MacRumors. According to Kuo, Apple will launch a new generation of wireless headphones in the first half of 2021 with a visual similar to the Pro edition, which has rubber bands and features such as noise cancellation. Details on the AirPods 3, however, were not revealed.
Other rumors about the future of Apple were also brought by the analyst on Friday (22). According to Ming-Chi Kuo, as already reported in May 2020, the iPhone 12 will not be accompanied by EarPods in the box, as has been done since the first iPhone in 2007.
The expectation is that the removal of wired headphones will drive the sale of the wearable in 2021, according to the analyst. The change, however, would increase the final costs of the smartphone, since the price of AirPods varies between R $ 1,349 and R $ 2,249, in Brazil. EarPods with Lightning or 3.5 mm (P2) connector are available for R $ 249.
Four Apple phones are expected to be announced in 2020: iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Max, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. Smartphones are expected to be presented in the second half of this year with larger screens and prices between $ 649 and US $ 1,399, or R $ 3,340 and R $ 7,410 in direct conversion, respectively.
