In his tweet, Prosser hinted of the “AirProds X” which he said are made “for sports/running.”
Interestingly, Prosser tweet also hinted that Apple might be ready to phase out products out of Beats, a company that Apple acquired for US$3 billion in 2014.
Prosser has been accurate on his information about Apple’s releases. He also earlier tweeted about the iPhone 9.
According to Prosser, the next model for the Airpods series will be dubbed as “AirPods X,” adding that this product was earlier rumored to be the “AirPods Pro Lite.”
Right now, the code name for the headset device is “B517,” according to Prosser. He hinted that the AirPods X will likely look like Beats X.
If that’s the case, then this would be a first for an AirPod flagship to have cables, which makes perfect sense since these new products are reportedly designed for sports and running.
Prosser said that Apple might be eyeing this device to be released between September and October. It is likely to be sold for a price tag of US$200.
Another device tipped is the Apple over-ear headphones that is likely to be introduced during the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference 2020 this June.
The over-ear headphones is accordingly going to look similar to that of Bose 700, which is a bit slimmer compared to the Beats’ signature look. The Bose-like headphones will be set for US$350, according to Prosser’s tweet.
Prosser, on another tweet, answered his followers’ curiosity about Apple looking like it is competing with a brand it already owns.
Prosser said the AirPods brand is “more meaningful and valuable” to Apple than Beat. “They wanna make everything in-house and ship with an Apple logo instead,” Prosser tweeted.
The well-known Apple tipster further noted that Apple will try to slowly phase out the Beats brand. In fact, the audio products are being sold to its employees on big discounts to clear out the inventory.
