Concept Envisions Next-Gen AirPods Based on Leaked Images

AirPods Concept

Earlier this week, an alleged ‘AirPods 3’ photo was leaked on the web claiming to be Apple’s next-generation AirPods model with active noise control (ANC), followed by the discovery of an icon in the latest iOS 13.2 beta showing redesigned AirPods with rubber ear tips.

Based on these recent leaks, graphic designer Michael Rieplhuber has shared a realistic concept showing what Apple’s rumoured in-ear AirPods might look like (via 9to5Mac).

As you can see in the concept image above, the imagined product looks quite different from the current generation AirPods despite being very similar to the leaked images.

According to veteran analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is expected to launch updated AirPods with an all-new design later this year or in the first quarter of 2020.
