Apple is working on releasing a new AirPods Pro and a new iPhone SE in April 2021, according to a report from MakotoCara’s new supply chain this weekend. The report says that the new AirPods Pro will feature a redesigned charging case, but the details of the iPhone SE are unclear.
The report cites Chinese supply chain sources and says the second-generation AirPods Pro will feature a “new design of charging case”. The will will be 21 mm thick, while it will be 46 mm long and 54 mm wide. For comparison, the current AirPods Pro Charging Case measures 45.2mm long and 60.6mm wide, so that means the second generation case will actually be different, but not significant.
There are no other details in this report about what to expect with the second generation AirPods Pro. Earlier, Bloomberg reported that the second-generation AirPods Pro will have a “more compact” design that removes the stem from the bottom of the AirPods Pro. The report explains, “The testing design has a more spherical shape that fills the user’s ear even more,” the report explained, comparing the Digita with the offerings of Samsung and Amazon.
For strangers, the Amazon Echo Bud has a stem-less design that is completely round and inside the user’s ear.
A Bloomberg report warns that such design changes are not guaranteed because AirPods Pro internals are challenging to pack in a more compact design. The AirPods Pro could be unveiled as soon as April 2, according to the Makotaka report.
Furthermore, today’s Makotakar report states that Apple will release a new third generation iPhone SEO in April. The report does not say what will be expected from the iPhone SE3, but the 4.20-inch iPhone SE, released in April, will arrive in 2020, a year after its release.
Rumors have suggested that Apple is working on a larger version of the iPhone SE, possibly with a 5.5-inch display and a similar design to the iPhone 8 Plus. It remains to be seen whether today’s report will be the same.
