Apple to announce a new subscription-focused service on March 25th

13 February 2019

If you were holding your breath for an early 2019 release for Apple's AirPods 2, you could be in for a disappointment - if well-known leaker OnLeaks' latest tweet is anything to go by.

The AirPods wireless charging case, however, is much less of a headache.

Apple has traditionally held a special event near the end of March each year where the company has announced new iPads and the iPhone SE among other products.

There's a suggestion that the AirPower wireless charging pad is set to arrive this year, too, but we won't hold our breath for it ever appearing from Apple's R&D labs at this point. After all, there are plenty of original AirPods owners who'd like the ability to charge their earbuds up wirelessly - even if they weren't doing so on an official Apple wireless charger. So if you've been waiting for the new iPad & iPad Mini, new iPod, and second-gen AirPods, you'll probably need to wait a little longer.

Speculation has been building for several months now that Apple will release a new version of the smallest iPad in its tablet lineup. In addition to bundling the wireless case and the earbuds, Apple is expected to offer the wireless case on its own for existing owners to buy separately.

As with any rumor, we can't be 100% sure if it's true, and with no firm indication from Apple, we can only speculate about a release date for the Apple AirPods 2.

Heart rate monitoring has been mentioned as one possibility, potentially offering an alternative to the Apple Watch for iPhone users wanting to track their pulse while exercising.

While the look and feel of the new Apple AirPods 2 won't be very different from the AirPods, Apple is likely to be making some other changes within the gadget. The colors in which the new products will be launched are the same White and Black. The new AirPods are thought to cost $40 more than the old ones, meaning $200.
