New Apple Earphones Coming: AirPods Overhead and Wireless Powerbeats 4
10.03.2020 0 Comments
Apple is preparing to release new Powerbeats 4 headphones. Certification in the FCC database, as well as promo images, videos, and device features that have leaked into the network hint at this. The upcoming headphones follow the Powerbeats Pro design, which should be more comfortable and ergonomic. According to WinFuture's website, Powerbeats 4 will feature an Apple H1 chip with Siri support. The Beats logo serves as a button that you can use to play, pause and switch tracks. A long hold activates the voice assistant.
The autonomy of the future news will be approximately 15 hours, which is 3 hours more than the previous model. Obviously, the Lightning port will be used for charging. Apple may announce Powerbeats 4 in the coming days, possibly with iOS 13.4.
Meanwhile, in the iOS 14 code, icons were found that indicate Apple on-ear headphones in the control center and in the widget for charge levels of connected devices. Based on this, it can be assumed that the company will release two versions of headphones – in white and black color options. Presumably, they will get more features than existing Beats headphones, which in terms of features equates them to AirPods. So, for example, they can boast of active noise reduction and will automatically pause playback when removing the headphones.
The final name of Apple's on-ear headphone is not yet known, but the company clearly classifies them as part of the AirPods family. This suggests that they will be released under the Apple brand, not Beats.
