Thursday January 12, 2023. 04:38 AM , from MacRumors
In a series of tweets today, Kuo said Apple is aiming for a $99 price for the more affordable standard AirPods. Currently, the $129 second-generation AirPods are the cheapest option from Apple, while the third-generation AirPods are priced at $169 with a Lightning charging case and at $179 with a MagSafe case. This is the second time lower-priced AirPods have been rumored in as many weeks following a prediction from analyst Jeff Pu.
Kuo did not offer any additional details about the new AirPods Max. Apple's premium over-ear noise canceling headphones were first released in December 2020 for $549, and we've previously outlined new features that would make sense for the next-generation pair, such as a USB-C port instead of Lightning, improved noise cancelation, longer battery life, new color options, a U1 chip for Precision Finding in the Find My app, and more.Related Roundups: AirPods 3, AirPods MaxTag: Ming-Chi KuoBuyer's Guide: AirPods (Neutral), AirPods Max (Neutral)Related Forum: AirPodsThis article, "Kuo: New AirPods Max and $99 AirPods to Launch as Early as Next Year" first appeared on MacRumors.comDiscuss this article in our forums
