According to the latest information from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple is planning several new AirPods headphones for 2024. In an October 2023 edition of his Power On newsletter, Gurman said Apple plans to release two AirPods 4 models and to update the AirPods Max “in late 2024.” On Sunday he confirmed that this plan was “still underway”.

Gurman expects the upcoming Apple AirPods 4 to feature a new design with a better fit, improved sound quality and an updated charging case with a USB-C port. He also expects an update in build quality, active noise cancellation and a speaker in the charging case. The latter can play a sound for location tracking on the Find My network. Apple also plans to discontinue the second and third generation AirPods after the introduction of the two fourth generation models.

According to Gurman, the updated Apple AirPods Max will also feature a USB-C port instead of the Lightning port. This is used for charging and playing music via cable, but apart from that there should be no other significant changes. At least if you don’t see new colors as a significant change. Current color options include green, pink, silver, sky blue and space gray.

Gurman expects the new Apple AirPods Pro 4 to launch in 2025 with a new design and an updated chipset. This could be the H3 chip, which is supposed to ensure better sound quality. Apple introduced the AirPods 2 during an event in October 2021. The AirPods Max were announced in a press release from December 2020 – high time for an update.
