TL;DR – Apple’s AirPods 2 might debut later this month.
It seems that we finally might be close to seeing Apple’s second generation AirPods hit store shelves soon!
According to a report by Macrumors, the rumour came from a Spanish blog Applesfera, which suggests that Apple is planning to replace its current generation AirPods with new model later this month.
Citing from a source said to be familiar with Apple’s plans, the blog backs up its claim with reference to a screenshot, supposedly taken from Apple’s stock management software. It notes that the original AirPods will no longer be on sale on March 28, while the new AirPods 2 will be placed on the shelves the day after.
XDA writer and TV host Max Weinbach suggested in his recent tweet that the second generation AirPods will probably feature Qi wireless charging, and both the case and the AirPods can charge up to 100% in only 15 minutes.
So the Apple news. AirPods wireless charging will happen. It will be VERY fast (0-100 in 15 minutes.) That speed is for the AirPods AND the case. It will probably use Qi charging.
There will be a downside though, the case will be bigger in one direction and heavier.

Tipped to launch on March 29, the new Apple AirPods 2 will apparently be available in black and white colour options, too.
Are you excited?
