AirPods are so commercially popular that you can’t blame Apple for not modifying them, but that’s about to change. This comes as Apple leaks a new AirPod design by accident.
Apple made a mistake by showing this in the latest beta for their software. The latest beta version of iOS 14.3 shows a new icon. The site 9to5Mac noticed that the new icon shows Apple has added the release’s internal system files showing an illustration of the first AirPods over-ear headphones. The leaks are always coming and they are something to take with a grain of salt. There is a complete world behind making predictions and announcements. You can watch the leaked image below.
A variety of well-known Apple and tech leakers have weighed in. John Prosser suggested the design would be extremely minimalistic but this new leak shows something different. He stated he was surprised about this but it could also be bait as the company has already done before. The headphones are supposed to arrive in early 2021 so this could be solid info.
Only time will tell if this is real or only bait once more but it already seems like a lot. These headphones would be the company’s most expensive AirPods to date. We will just have to wait and see.
