According to the new details Apple Inc. may be rolling out the 2nd generation of AirPods this spring itself. The new AirPods 2 earbuds are already in production at Inventec. Though, the big thing about the earbuds is that they will be having the new ‘Black color’ option. The previous generation of AirPods was only available in white. The details have been provided by Economic News Daily (Chinese language).
Not only this, but along with the upcoming AirPods 2, Apple may also be shipping out the AirPower charging mat, which was first teased with iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus, back in 2017.
The mat will be having an in-house technology, enabling simultaneous charging of various Apple devices like Apple Watch, iPhones, iPads, and yet-to-be-announced ‘AirPods wireless charging case’.
As per early speculations, the new AirPods 2 and AirPower may be launched together this March itself, probably during a March 25 press event by Apple Inc. But it seems unlikely that the AirPods will be making an appearance unless the fall of 2019 arrives; coming alongside the new iPhone.
