Here's When to Expect AirPods 2, Wireless Charging Case

Kuo: AirPods with New Design Coming in 2020

Apple talked about a wireless charging case when it announced the AirPower mat back in September 2017, but it's unclear if Kuo's "wireless charging support" refers to an upgraded case that works with current AirPods, or whether we're getting some brand-new buds in a few months, but it sounds like we might see both. Though early rumors claimed that we'd see AirPods 2 hit store shelves sometime this year, a new investor note from Kuo relays that Apple will release a new iteration of AirPods sometime in early 2019. He also claims that Apple will launch upgraded AirPods with wireless charging in Q1, 2019. Part of this would be the use of Bluetooth 5, the latest version of the technology that will improve power usage and the signal's reliability and range. Kuo doesn't give away what features the 2020 AirPods may include. That's pretty vague, but he also foresees an "all-new design model" following (we'll call them AirPods 3) at the beginning of 2020. He believes that many users will end up buying the AirPods instead of upgrading their iPhone in the future. The analyst also sees some changes to the Bluetooth specifications for the AirPods themselves. "SZS will be the main or sole supplier for this, thanks to its better design capabilities".

Kuo's note states that these AirPods are expected in the first quarter of 2019.

Despite turning it over a season-high 16 times, NU countered by going an impressive 25-of-30 from the free-throw line on the day. A 3-pointer from Watson made it 11-2 in less than three minutes and Underwood used his first timeout. "And we were able to".

In short, AirPods appear to be yet another Apple product that was mocked early on before going on to becoming a legitimate success.

Apple is becoming an expert at teasing its fans bit by bit.
