If you've read here since last year, you know I'm waiting for Apple to release its updated AirPods. I lost my last summer and there were enough rumors that a little update that would include wireless charging and Hey Siri support would come after the Fall I was about to replace them. This was in early August, so it wouldn't be that long, right?
It didn't happen, but then there were rumors of a release along with the new iPhones. I could last that long. Then again with the new iPad pros. Again, no show. I was close to pulling the trigger just before Christmas when the last rumors started. I was tired of waiting, but why not hold out just a little longer and get the latest and greatest. This time, the rumors seem to have some bones, and reports that AirPower is also producing may mean Apple is finally ready to send the new AirPods out into the world.
Now we have a recent report from the Taiwanese site Economic Daily Times that the new AirPodes will not only have some new features. Apple will also have a new color option ̵
I included a picture of the Colorware Space Gray version of the current AirPods to give you an idea of what might come. However, a factory matt black finish from Apple will blow it away. Not only that, but they will just drive you to the standard price, instead of the super premium $ 349 that Coloeware's custom AirPods will set you back.
Now it's just a matter of when. Will the new AirPods show up at Apple's upcoming event? Will they come afterwards? In a silent press release with AirPower? I know one thing for sure. When it is, my money will be paid the moment I hear the news.
