Rumors say that new Apple AirPods are coming soon, and today some of the details of these upgraded wireless earbuds may have leaked out.
The new version of AirPods is being manufactured by Inventec, according to a report from Economic Daily News, and it's said that the AirPods and charging case will be available in a black color option as well as white. The new AirPods are also expected to have a matte coating to improve their grip.
Today's report also says that the new AirPods will have the same price as the previous version, which was $159, though the report also suggests that the past generation was $199. The new AirPods will allegedly launch this spring alongside Apple's AirPower wireless charging mat.
Apple's AirPods have become pretty popular in the two years since they launched, and a black color option for version two could help give them another boost in popularity. While they are popular, some think that the AirPods look kind of weird sticking out of your ears, and the bright white color just helps them to stand out even more. A black color option could make them a bit more subdued and could convince folks that were on the fence about AirPods to finally pull the trigger.
Would a black color option get you interested in AirPods 2?
