While everyone is waiting for the iPhone 9, to be Apple’s next big product launch. There has been little buzz around Apple’s next audio, accessory lineup too. Apple is working on two new audio accessories-over-ear headphones. And the second one which will be targeted towards, the sports and running enthusiasts.
Next, the second product claimed to call as “AIRPODS” X with codename B517. To be priced at around $200, these rumoured appear like the Beats X in-ear neckband headphones and likely to launch around September or October later this year.
Apple is working, towards phasing out the Beats brand. According to him, this is because the brandname of Airpods is “more meaningful and valuable to Apple than Beats”.
They wanna make everything in-house and ship with Apple logo instead. However, denying the claim of phasing out of Beats, the Cupertino-based tech gaint has no such plans.
To recall, Apple acquired headphones maker and music app creator Beats Electronics in 2014 for $3 billion.
