Rumours continue to swirl regarding Apple’s high-end AirPods Pro.
A new report courtesy of Economic Daily News states Apple plans to sell its AirPods Pro in multiple colours, including black, white and ‘Midnight Green.’ The tech giant’s current 2nd-generation AirPods are only available in white.
These colours seem designed to match, or at least compliment the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max’s various hues. If accurate, this will be the first time Apple has released a pair of its wireless earbuds in multiple colours. That said, Beats, which is owned by Apple, offers its headphones in several colours, including: ‘Black,’ ‘Ivory,’ ‘Navy,’ and ‘Moss.’
The report goes on to say Apple’s AirPods Pro could release in as many as eight colours, though it only mentions explicitly white, black and ‘Midnight Green.’
Apple’s AirPods Pro are expected to feature noise-cancelling, improved battery life and water resistance. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reported earlier this month that Apple had plans to release a high-end version of its AirPods before the end of October.
Given that October is almost over, it remains unclear when Apple plans to reveal its often-rumoured high-end AirPods. The tech giant will likely announce the headphones at some point in November.
Apple’s second-generation AirPods released back in April of 2019. While the earbuds looked identical to their predecessor, they featured a few minor upgrades, including a Qi wireless charging case, a new H1 chip and hands-free ‘Hey Siri’ interaction.
Apple’s 2nd-generation AirPods with the Qi charging case are priced at $269 CAD. The charging case is also available separately for $99. The first-generation AirPods cost $219. It’s unclear how much Apple’s AirPods Pro will cost but it is likely over $300.
Update 29/10/2019 12:15pm: Apple has officially revealed the AirPods Pro. The new high-end wireless earbuds are only available in white.
