Apple’s highest-end audio gear may very well be getting a refresh earlier than the top of the 12 months with new colours additionally probably within the works.
Writing by way of the weekly Energy On publication, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman means that we should always anticipate refreshed AirPods Professional to be introduced this fall, with the design that is being bought at present coming as much as three years previous. We have heard rumors of latest AirPods Professional being labored on for a while now, with help for lossless audio one potential characteristic.
As for the expensive AirPods Max, Gurman additionally believes Apple may supply a brand new look right here as effectively. Particularly, discuss of latest colour choices will please those that aren’t followers of the present choices whereas Gurman additionally mentions a worth drop. That, nevertheless, seems to be mode a case of wishful pondering than something primarily based on data he has picked up from sources. The present $550 worth level is a tough capsule to swallow for patrons, however that does not imply folks aren’t doing so.
Look out for brand new AirPods Professional within the fall. The present mannequin has been available on the market since fall of 2019, so the batteries are already in all probability in hassle for some early adopters. Additionally look out for an AirPods Max refresh with new colours (and, we hope, a worth drop—$550 is absurd for these headphones).
If Apple does convey lossless playback to new AirPods Professional we will safely anticipate it to even be a characteristic added to the refreshed AirPods Max, too. How Apple will make that occur is not clear, nevertheless — the Bluetooth know-how utilized by wi-fi headphones does not help lossless audio, suggesting some type of bespoke connection can be used as a substitute.
The present AirPods Professional are among the many greatest iPhone earbuds on sale and AirPods Max are effectively suited to hours of listening whereas sitting at a Mac. However the addition new colours positively would not go amiss. Hopefully AirPods Professional will even get an possibility aside from white this 12 months.
