Apple Airpods May Get Wireless Charging In 2019

AirPods

It may be recalled that there were rumors surrounding upgraded Airpods being planned for this year but it never got released during the Apple launches scheduled for this year. This will be followed by the launch of an entirely new model of the headphones in 2020 he said.

The Apple analyst also finally noted that another pair of AirPods was on track for release in early 2020, with an "all-new design", but he did not hint at what that might be. If Apple has a pleasant surprise waiting for us with the introduction of the updated silicon, we will be waiting to see what they have been working on.

In particular, Ming-Chi Kuo has claimed that AirPods could be wirelessly charged in the first quarter of 2019. He didn't specify what that exactly means, but it does sound like it's going to ship with the same wireless charging case that Apple first announced in September 2017 alongside the AirPower wireless charging mat. If this turns out to be true, then owners of the first-generation wireless earphones won't have to purchase the new upgraded version just to take advantage of the wireless charging support.

A software update rolled out previous year for AirPods addressed a common issue faced by users who found it easy to misplace the small gadgets.

Virat Kohli absolutely belts them in the Adelaide nets. "I have enjoyed my cricket here", he further said. India will kick-start their Test campaign against Australia from December 6 at the Adelaide Oval.

"We believe that there is a greater likelihood of legacy iPhone users buying AirPods than upgrading to new iPhone models", Kuo writes, according to the note from TF International Securities seen by Business Insider.

It will also include an improved heat-resistant hinge on the case, which tells us that the wireless case would be an add-on accessory - like it has always been rumored.

Apple said in 2017 that it was preparing a new version of its wireless earbuds that will support wireless charging, but they haven't been released yet. After 16 million were sold past year, he predicts more than 100 million will sell in 2021.
