The report, which primarily focuses on flash memory supplier Winbond, follows recent claims by Japanese blog Mac Otakara that Apple’s ‘AirPods Pro 2’ will be released in April alongside a third-generation iPhone SE. 

Beyond claiming that the wireless charging case of the next-generation AirPods Pro will have slightly tweaked dimensions compared to the original, the report did not share many details about the AirPods Pro 2.

From today’s report:

“Winbond is also expected to be among the NOR flash suppliers for Apple’s next-generation AirPods Pro slated for launch later in the first half of this year, the sources indicated. The Taiwan-based chipmaker will be running its NOR flash production lines at nearly full capacity utilization during the six-month period.”

Reports from last year, including one from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, have also claimed that Apple is looking to make the AirPods Pro even more compact by eliminating the stem that sticks out from the bottom of the earphones.
