Apple yet to Update Its AirPods Lineup in 2024 and 2025

Apple is gearing up to update its AirPods lineup. The company recently introduced a new version of the AirPods Pro 2 and the only new change is a USB-C port. However, we can expect major changes for the AirPods lineup next year and this could lead to the introduction of a new model too. 

AirPods 2024 Roadmap Leaked

According to a recent report by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple is planning to make changes to its AirPods lineup in the coming years. The company wants to make it easier for customers to choose the right AirPods by making the differences between models more clear.

This suggests that Apple could launch two versions of the fourth-generation AirPods in 2024. One will be more entry-level while the other one will borrow some features from the AirPods Pro with the presence of noise-cancellation. The higher-end model of the two is also expected to get a new charging case with speakers for Find My alerts, much like the AirPods Pro.

Both will carry a USB Type-C port and a design language of the AirPods 3, which is a mixture of both the AirPods 2 and AirPods Pro 2 design. There will be a short stem taken from the latter and the open-air design of the former. We can expect a more comfortable fit with the two but don’t expect silicon ear tips.

It is also revealed that the AirPods 2 and the AirPods 3 will be discontinued to be replaced by the new AirPods 4 models. Their prices could be similar to that of the AirPods 2 and the AirPods 3. The intention is to make the AirPods lineup less confusing.

 Plus, the AirPods 3 didn’t perform well as people often find themselves either going for the lesser-priced AirPods 2 (as there wasn’t much of a difference between the two) or the higher-end AirPods Pro 2 in favor of ANC. The prominent changes will help people make a better choice!

Both will carry a USB Type-C port and a design language of the AirPods 3, which is a mixture of both the AirPods 2 and AirPods Pro 2 design. There will be a short stem taken from the latter and the open-air design of the former. We can expect a more comfortable fit with the two but don’t expect silicon ear tips.

Pinch-perfect control.

It is believed that the force sensor gives you even more control over your entertainment. Press once to play and pause songs or mute and unmute yourself on calls, and press twice to skip through songs or end a call.

Apple may also introduce the next generation AirPods Pro Max, which haven’t had a replacement since their 2020 release. This might therefore be quite exciting. Regarding the AirPods Pro, a new model with a new chip and design as well as additional health functions should be available in 2025. However, there won’t be a new model in 2024.

We are unsure if this will become a real product because it is only a projection. We will have to wait until Apple provides official details on this, although some updates will be appreciated.

Apple typically introduces new models in the latter half of the year around when new iPhones come out. Gurman says that the AirPods will come out “later next year” and the ‌AirPods Max‌ will come out “around the end of next year
