Kuo: AirPods with New Design Coming in 2020

Kuo: AirPods with New Design Coming in 2020

This could also simply mean that the upgraded models may come along with a wireless charging case.

Kuo notes that fewer than 5 percent of iPhone users now own AirPods, and with over 1 billion iPhone users worldwide, there are "great potential growth opportunities" for the accessory. Kuo described the AirPods 2 as an "upgraded model with wireless charging support".

Kuo has further stated that the AirPods have managed to become the most popular product from the company and it will likely see a major boost in sales by 2021 and Apple is expected to sell more 100 million units. Now, it's not the AirPods themselves that will be charged wirelessly but the case will be. This will be followed by the launch of an entirely new model of the headphones in 2020 he said.

The Apple AirPods are almost two years old and the Cupertino giant still hasn't released a new version.

Mr. Kuo wrote that Apple's AirPods have the fast growth momentum of any of the firm's products. However, it makes sense that the wireless charging case - which boasts a green indicator light on the outside so AirPod owners can tell at-a-glance when the earbuds are charging - would launch alongside a new iteration of the earbuds.

Apple talked about AirPower at an event over a year ago, boasting that the mat would allow users to place devices anywhere on the mat and charge multiple devices at once. Previous rumors pointed to such innovations as improved sound, noise reduction, protection against water, Apple W3 of the Apple Watch Series 4 and the feature "Hey Siri".

These AirPods will be the first to get wireless charging support. Unfortunately, Kuo didn't provide any details about the next-generation AirPods.

For the AirPods 2, featuring a new, wireless charging case, Kuo originally told us to expect them in the second half of this year.
