New Version of the AirPods are Getting Smaller
Apple will release a new version of the AirPods wireless earbuds next year, Bloomberg reports. Both the regular version and the Pro version would get an update in which the ‘stem’ becomes shorter.
According to the news agency, the regular model will look more like the current AirPods Pro, with a shorter stem and loose caps where the user can choose the right size. However, they will not have noise cancellation.
With the new AirPods Pro, the stem would disappear completely.
Apple first released the wireless earphones four years ago and renewed the regular version for the last time in March 2019. The Pro version came out a year ago.
According to rumours, Apple has also been working for two years on headphones with noise cancellation that must be worn over the ears.
However, that model would be plagued by development problems, so the headphones have still not been officially announced.
