As per a statement by Gurman,”Look out for new AirPods Pro in the fall. The current model has been on the market since fall of 2019, so the batteries are already probably in trouble for some early adopters. Also look out for an AirPods Max refresh with new colors (and, we hope, a price drop—$550 is absurd for those headphones).”
In terms of design, the AirPods are likely to come with a more compact design. It might ditch the stem and come with a new charging case.

Additionally, Apple might also be planning to launch new colour variants for AirPods Max headphones. Gurman hopes that Apple slashes the prices of these over-ear headphones, but there is no confirmation on that as of now. Notably, Apple AirPods Max was launched in India at Rs 59,990 back in December 2020. It is available in space grey, silver, sky blue, green, and pink colour options.
The company is not expected to launch the second generation of the Apple headphones, but add new colour variants to the older model.
