Good news for all who wait AirPods 2 – Spanish resource AppleSfera has reported that the wireless headset of the new generation will be presented in the framework of the special spring event Apple. And in the free sale of the accessory will arrive just a few days after the announcement – 29 Mar. According to the source, the updated model will completely replace the original AirPods.
According to insiders, the original model will be collapsed immediately after the release of the new version. After that, AirPods can be purchased only from third-party retailers. And then — for a limited time until sold out leftovers. Such a move is quite clear — Apple does not want to create internal competition between its own models.
It is unlikely that the updated model will differ significantly from the original version of the headphones, but several sources reports about the following:
- Headphones will be available in a new color — dark;
- 2 AirPods will be equipped with advanced system of noise reduction and protection from water and spray;
- Updated accessory will benefit from improved wireless processor W2;
- A new generation of wireless headphones will get the support of the feature “Hey Siri”.
It is not excluded that AirPods 2 will be a bit more expensive. Analysts are talking about different numbers, and the price range is quite large — from 149 to 199 dollars.
It is expected that along with the updated headphones will go on sale in the case with support for wireless charging. It is unknown whether it will be sold separately, or this case will be supplied with 2 AirPods. In any case, we’ll soon find out — the wait is long.
