AirPods with wireless charging coming early next year
- Apple’s AirPods wireless earphones will be updated with wireless charging very soon according to popular analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
- With their first update since 2016, the AirPods will come with a wireless charging case. This will be made possible thanks to the case’s new components and hinges.
- Kuo predicts that these changes will lead to a cost increase of almost 60 per cent. So, expect to pay quite a bit more over Rs 11,900 of the current model.
- It’s also believed that next-gen AirPods will launch in 2020. These will have improved IP rating, Hey Siri integration and maybe even a heavily updated design.
- It must be noted that a wireless charging case for the AirPods was supposed to be offered as an accessory from December 2017, but it never really hit the market, just like the Air Power charging pad which was showcased alongside it.
