The income Apple makes from the sale of its wireless headphones is enormous. In parallel with the provision of their services, this is a market that the Apple brand wants to keep abreast of by regularly offering new generations of their headphones.
AirPods 3 are expected on the program this year (Apple seems to have postponed their deployment, which was scheduled to coincide with the Apple Music update in May). A second generation of AirPods Pro is planned for next year. According to a new projection by the renowned specialist and Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman, the focus is on activity monitoring.
As precise as an Apple Watch?
The universe of health and physical activity at Apple could be saved with the introduction of a new sensor in the AirPods Pro in 2022. Mark Gurman suggests that wireless active noise canceling headphones have sensors for updated movement to allow for physical activity detection. Everything should be listed on the iPhone and compatible with the Fitness + app (which is already synced to the Apple Watch).
If the rumor is true, the AirPods Pro will not only stand out for their in-ear design and active noise cancellation, they will also be more optimized for athletes. And that leads to another rumor: the end of design with a rod.
The AirPods Pro 2022 could thus regain a design that comes close to that of the competition in the market (such as Bose). Apple markets headphones under the Beats brand and we need to find out what the brand’s new wireless models seem to be to LeBron James’ ears. This design could come close to the future AirPods Pro.
For the AirPods 3 planned for this year, a current illustration suggests that the design will be adopted from the current AirPods Pro. On the flip side, they wouldn’t be in-ear to give customers a choice between the two types of earbuds … and add to AirPods Pro’s interest in the physical activities.
