As per the latest rumors, Apple is gearing up silently to launch a new version of its iconic AirPods wireless earphones featuring active noise cancellation later this month. The new model will be called the AirPods Pro and will be priced at around $250.
This report comes today morning from a Chinese newspaper, the China Economic Daily. According to the report, the new AirPods Pro will adopt a new in-ear design to support the new noise-canceling feature and enhance the listening experience.
As of now, there is no image leaked online associated with that. However, we can expect to see it soon at a rumored press event before the end of October.
According to a separate report on Friday from the same Chinese-language financial media outlet, the AirPods Pro will also feature a new metal design that increases heat dissipation. Apple AirPods supplier Inventec is said to be cooperating with Chinese manufacturer Lixun to undertake the new orders.
AirPods featuring active noise cancellation have been rumored since even before the second-gen model was launched earlier this year, but some of the recent reports indicated that the AirPods with active noise cancellation could be launched in late 2019. It now looks as though the new model will be positioned above the existing one, and won’t be a simple replacement.
If these rumors are accurate, Apple could soon announce an event to be held before the end of October. The company has been expected to reveal a new 16-inch MacBook Pro and new iPad Pro models, long-rumored AR glasses and location tracking tags being announced.
