The new AirPods are not very far. According to a new report, the new generation of Apple’s wireless headphones has gone into production at Inventec and will be available in the spring, alongside the AirPower wireless charger, it seems.
These AirPods would have the right to a new coating (less slippery), both at the headphones and at the charging box. And most importantly, Apple would propose a black model, in addition to a white model. Current AirPods are only available in white.
This information from the Economic Daily News joins the one shared by MySmartPrice a few days ago. The new report points out that the price would be identical to the current generation. If this is really the case, then the price will be $159.
Apple will hold a keynote on March 25, but the new AirPods will not be presented on this occasion. Indeed, sources that are familiar with Apple services claim that the focus of this event will be the company’s long-rumored news subscription service.
According to the current info, this new service will cost $10 per month and will allow Apple customers to have access to content from a variety of news outlets. However, some of Apple’s big names may be missing the list due to some agreement terms.
Since a lot of enthusiasts are waiting for Apple’s Video service that was rumored to debut sometime in April, we could assume that this March event will be a good occasion for Apple to reveal all the details about this new subscription service.
