According to DigiTimes (which on average buck it once on two), Apple will launch AirPods 3 by the end of the year. And the same thing states in parallel and independently Ming-Chi Kuo, according to which will also come a model with completely revised design.
The new trinkets will obviously include the wireless recharge and a certain degree of water resistance; But the real innovation will be represented by the sophisticated technologies of environmental noise suppression:
"It is rumored that Apple decided to release its third generation of AirPods by the end of 2019, with the introduction of the noise-cancelling function. The main assembler of AirPods 3 will be the Taiwanese Inventec, which will add the Chinese Luxshare Precision. "
The suppression of noise in itself is not an absolute novelty, but "it is very difficult to tame" and requires a work of Carthusian optimization of circuitry, microphone and speakers. And there is also another non-irrelevant issue concerning autonomy:
"What's more, earphones with noise-cancelling functions will consume more energy than those that are lacking. It remains to be seen how Apple will reduce energy consumption."
For Ming-Chi Kuo, however, there will be two new models, one cheaper but less innovative, and the second completely different but more expensive:
We expect that Apple will probably launch two new AirPods models at the end of 2019, ASAP. One will have a completely new form factor at a higher price. The other one will have a trend and a price in line with the current model. In both cases however we will see the abandonment of the current design "SMT + RFPCB" in favor of SiP.
With the last part, the analyst in practice says that they will change the production processes, so that the internal space (larger battery at the same volume) and the assembly costs are reduced.
If everything goes as planned, therefore, better to put in standby the eventual purchase of the AirPods 2; Within a few months or at most before the beginning of 2020, a version with wireless recharge, water resistance and background noise suppression could come in. At what price, however, it is all to see.
