Oh, Apple, how we’ve fallen in love along with your spiffy little AirPods. Sure, they initially appeared a bit unusual, however we’ve obtained used to that now and so they look, effectively, how shall I put it? I hardly ever use this phrase, however I’ll: iconic.
The rumors concerning the sequel to these super-cool, always-in-demand wi-fi earbuds have been legion. Apple appeared to trace that hands-free entry to Siri was coming way back to September.
Then there was the suggestion that new AirPods would boast improved sensors for wellness and well being monitoring.
Or the trace new design is on its manner however not till 2020.
In January we heard that AirPower, the wi-fi charging mat, had gone into manufacturing so AirPods 2 can be sizzling on their heels.
Then, one thing inside Apple’s subsequent iOS software program launch, anticipated later this month, indicated that “Hey, Siri” hands-free performance was particular.
More lately, it got here to mild that upgraded AirPods might repair the most important concern the AirPods have: out-of-ear-slippiness. I feel that’s the technical time period.
And even when the AirPods are delayed, the potential characteristic upgrades are thrilling.
As for timing, do not surrender hope, a Spring launch continues to be potential.
Anyway, and look, I’m summarizing right here: there have been a LOT of rumors.
Separate from all of this, it appears doubtless that Apple will host a particular occasion later this month in the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, maybe on Monday, March 25.
Personally, I nonetheless consider that alongside new gadgets like subscription information and film companies, there shall be introduced, in all probability a brand new iPad, probably extra.
So, at this time’s report brings consolation to these nervous that we’d have to attend longer for the AirPods 2.
Yesterday, Spanish Apple rumor website Applesfera stated that Apple has set a date for the discharge of the following model of AirPods.
That date is that this month, simply, March 29. That’s as a result of the present AirPods will vanish on March 28 in accordance with Applesfera’s sources.
That would definitely tie in with the occasion just a few days earlier than so Tim Cook or one other Apple exec can announce Apple AirPower and AirPods are open for pre-orders, now, and on sale from Friday. That feels like Apple, proper?
But what is going to that imply?
Will it’s the AirPods with souped-up powers and new design or just the present mannequin with a wireless-chargeable case, one thing that has been promised for over a 12 months now?
Here’s my take.
I feel that AirPower is almost prepared, delayed as a result of it was a troublesome ask in engineering phrases to make a multi-gadget pad work. So, it will make sense that the better a part of the equation, a wireless-chargeable case for the present AirPods, can be launched on the identical day.
To be sincere, if that’s all it’s, I’m nonetheless loads excited.
There’s that additional factor, the bit within the iOS beta which suggests hands-free Siri is on its manner. My query is, is the present chip within the AirPods sufficient to make hands-free Siri occur? If so, why wasn’t it activated already? If not, then it means that no matter is introduced to go along with the AirPower pad goes to be able to this improve which in flip suggests Apple could also be doing one thing it usually does: upgrading the chip inside a product earlier than it follows up with an entire design change.
There’s an opportunity that Apple gained’t point out the up to date AirPods at its March 25 occasion, assuming that occurs, as an alternative wanting to maintain the main focus as a lot as potential on the News and TV companies. In which case, it might simply announce the AirPods and AirPower by means of a press launch. It has achieved that with iPads prior to now, as an example.
Though I nonetheless consider a brand new iPad shall be introduced then: it looks like too good a match to disclose a brand new iPad as the right solution to learn the information or watch films.
Here’s the timetable: if March 25 is correct for the occasion, that shall be introduced, and invitations will in all probability be issued on March 18, or the Thursday earlier than, March 14, happening earlier conduct from Apple.
In different phrases, in a few weeks or much less, issues might be loads clearer.
