Apple is set to launch two new AirPods models around the fall of 2019 – including one highlighting an “all-new structure factor design“, as indicated by a new digest.
Renowned Apple reviewer Ming-Chi Kuo claims that the newly redesigned AirPods will cost a “more expensive price” than the second-generation AirPods, which costs around £159 with a standard charging unit and around £199 for a wireless charging unit.
According to the MacRumours reports, Apple is eventually set to release an updated breed of the current AirPods with a similar pricing.
Kuo included that the “all-new design” of one of the new models “could promote the replacement request and pull in new customers“.
He guesstimates AirPods shipments might achieve 52 million units in 2019 and 75 – 85 million units by 2020 respectively.
A different report in DigiTimes additionally asserts the new AirPods will be launched before the year’s end with another fresh new design and a “noise-cancellation technology”.
In the meanwhile Apple has released its second-generation AirPods a month ago, offering with a hands-free “Hey Siri” support and up to the half more talk time contrasted with the first AirPods.
It additionally released the new wireless charging unit, which works with any Qi-compatible charging pad.

Kuo didn’t make any reference to whether the newly upgraded AirPods 2 will almost certainly invoke Siri by calling her name as opposed to touching the AirPods as of now. This appeared to be prodded by some video that played toward the start of Apple’s Cupertino occasion in September 2018.
“My hunch is it will be incorporated, and with a redesigned processor to make it conceivable. Sorry to let you down in the event that you were anticipating after AirPods 2, yet no less than fall 2019 is about here!“
