In his latest Power On newsletter, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says the second generation AirPods Pro will debut this fall, along with new colors for the AirPod Max.
“Look out for new AirPods Pro in the fall,” he says. “The current model has been on the market since fall of 2019, so the batteries are already probably in trouble for some early adopters. Also look out for an AirPods Max refresh with new colors (and, we hope, a price drop—$550 is absurd for those headphones).:
The AirPods Pro 2 is anticipated to feature an entirely new design that does away with the short stem that comes out of the bottom for a design similar to the Beats Fit Pro. They’re also expected to sport even better audio quality and perhaps some health care features thanks to new sensors.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo thinks the release of the new AirPods Pro will boost shipments to more than 100 million.
