Apple to launch 2nd Gen AirPods Pro in first half of 2021

A January 2021 DigiTimes report claims that the second-gen AirPods Pro are "slated for launch later in the first half of this year", echoing an earlier report from Bloomberg suggesting both the AirPods 3 and AirPods Pro 2 could be released at some point in 2021. Another earlier report from MacOtakara claimed that the second generation of AirPods Pro will be released in April, accompanied by a third-gen iPhone SE.

Apple has a new pair of AirPods Pro that could be launched in the coming months, a report says. At this time, there's no concrete information surrounding the launch of the AirPods Pro 2, so we'll recommend our readers to treat all of this with a pinch of salt for now.

This all flies in the face of predictions from the ever-accurate Ming-chi Kuo from April 2020, suggesting that the AirPods Pro 2 won't go into mass production until Q4 2021 with release set for Q1 2022. It is stated that Windbound Corporation is the main supplier of NOR flash memory in the new AirPods Pro. This report lines up with previous rumors that said Apple could be working on launching both next-generation AirPods and AirPods Pro in the first half of 2021.

The AirPods Pro 2 will eventually succeed the first-generation AirPods Pro, but its release timeline is all over the place right now. The new audio accessory will also feature a more rounded body like its rivals. It remains to be seen how the Cupertino tech giant will make it look uniquely "AirPods" and a lot less "Galaxy Buds Pro".

It is believed that AirPods 3 will also make it out this year.
