New Apple AirPods could be released in May

Another month, another new Apple product. The tech giant responsible for the phones and laptops many mobile DJs use religiously is now reportedly preparing to release their newest AirPod model. The AirPods did receive an update last year with the release of the second generation of AirPods, as well as the new noise-canceling AirPod Pros. But Apple is notorious for frequent product releases that never fail to sell, so a new addition to the AirPod product line is not too surprising.

Tech analyst Jon Prosser posted in a tweet on April 19 that the new AirPods are now, “ready to go” for release next month. Though currently there are no specifications as to how these AirPods differ from previous generations, current rumors indicate that it could be an upgrade on the original AirPods line, released as AirPods third generation. It could also be an addition to the AirPod Pros product line, potentially presenting itself as a more affordable alternative to the expensive Pros, with some features removed.
