Apple will be adding several new AirPods products to its lineup in 2024, according to Mark Gurman.

The Bloomberg analyst iterated that there might be a new AirPods Max and standard AirPods entering the market next year. The refresh will happen alongside a new AirPods Pro that will be available in 2025. It’s believed that Apple will update the AirPods Max and AirPods’ design, as well as the included case. Software-wise, the audio will be improved.


The release of the upcoming AirPods will see the third-generation and second-generations phasing out. Taking its place will be two fourth-generation models set at varying price points. Gurman claims that the AirPods models will appear to be a hybrid between the AirPods Pro and AirPods, albeit with shorter stems. The higher-end model will have Active Noise Cancellation, a feature that’s currently exclusive to the Max and Pro models. The exact release date of the two upcoming AirPods models has yet to be revealed.
