Since the original debut of the AirPods in December 2016, Apple enthusiasts have been on the edge of their seats to confirm rumors of Apple's noise-canceling AirPods Pro.
Many reports have eluded to the device coming out as early as 2020, but according to a report from China Economy, the AirPod Pro's would hit stores in October 2019. This speculation comes after Apple's IOS 13.2, BETA launch. Within the IOS 13.2 BETA release, a new animation has been added to teach users how to adjust to the AirPods Pro noise-canceling features. With this discovery, the masses believe we could have the new pods earlier than expected.
Photos obtained by SlashLeaks are very similar to the glyphs noted in the IOS 13.2 BETA feature instructions.
If the rumors are true, Apple is up against several technology giants set to release their own branded headphones.
Among the list of Apple's headphone competitors for 2019/2020:
Amazon Echo Buds $129
Google Second-Generation Pixel Buds $ 179
Microsoft Surface Earbuds $249
Bose QuietComfort 20 $ 249
For all those Apple lovers out there stay tuned for the new release details.
