Apple AirPods to get wireless charging upgrade in 2019, analyst claims

As yet there are no details on exactly when the Apple AirPods 2 will launch, we suspect it will be some time in the first quarter of 2019.

Nevertheless, he suggested that people have to wait until 2020 to witness all new AirPods with "all-new design" element. Considering that Kuo was one of the first analysts to talk about the launch of the original AirPods prior to Apple's presentation, everything seems to indicate that their sources are quite reliable.

Although Apple has not released sales figures for its AirPods, they seem like a hit in wealthy urban areas, with the white earbuds adorning many ears on commuters in the morning. Analysts started weighing in, and Apple insider Ming-Chi Kuo said at the beginning of November that the AirPods 2 might become official at the end of 2018, or beginning of 2019. The earbuds are also expected to get an upgrade to Bluetooth 5.0 and a W-series chip. According to him, Apple is gearing up to launch the updated AirPods with a propriety case that supports wireless charging as well.

The current AirPods' carrying case is charged only with a standard Lighting cable, but the new product will have new components and hinges, redesigned to withstand higher thermal requirements. If this turns out to be true, then owners of the first-generation wireless earphones won't have to purchase the new upgraded version just to take advantage of the wireless charging support.

Interestingly, Kuo said AirPods are Apple's most popular accessory ever. Kuo makes no mention of the latter, so users interested in buying this new AirPods will have to settle for third-party wireless chargers. After 16 million were sold previous year, he predicts more than 100 million will sell in 2021.
