Rumours: Apple to launch upgraded AirPods in 2019.

Via The Verge – An Apple analyst is predicting that the company’s upgraded AirPods will be released in the first quarter of 2019.

Ming-Chi Kuo believes there could even be a redesign of the product in 2020 and the demand for the devices will grow in the coming years.

Tech site The Verge says there have been rumors that upgraded AirPods would debut during this year’s product launches, but they never appeared on stage.

If Kuo’s predictions are correct, the new models will have “wireless charging support,” although it’s not clear if that means an upgraded case or the earpieces themselves.

Kuo says the next model will come with upgraded Bluetooth specs, an upgraded hinge on the case, and that some internal components will be a bit more expensive.

The analyst believes that AirPods are Apple’s most popular accessory and predicts that the company will go from selling 16 million in 2017 to more than 100 million by 2021.
