The next generation AirPods will have a slew of new features, such as a new design, case, and active noise cancellation.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman said that the AirPods 4 will come in two versions and have different price points. Apple intends to replace the AirPods 2 and the AirPods 3 this way. Currently, there’s very minimal differences between the two models, and Apple believes that they’re losing money due to the confusion and customers opting for the lower-priced earphones.
To address this concern, Gurman said that Apple will update the AirPods 4’s design and make it like a cross between the Pro and regular version. Along with this, Apple will feature shorter stems and an improved fit, but it remains to be said if silicone ear tips will be added.
The AirPods 4 will also have USB-C charging and the Find My network, and active noise cancellation. The AirPods Pro is set to have a refresh in 2025.
