A New Tomorrow's Report – With Extreme Caution – MySmartPrice confirms rumors of a Spring Launch for AirPower as well as updated AirPods with "new design" and a grip coating. The source also calls for improved bud sound quality, a black color palette and improved design for better bass reproduction.
According to Quelle, the new coating that could find its way to AirPods 2 is similar in style to the glass on the back of Google Pixel 3. For those unfamiliar, the back of the Pixel 3 has a matt finish Soft touch glass that gives it a subtle feel – especially accentuated when it appears to be in the ears
The rumor suggests that not only the top of the AirPod 2 buds have this coating, but also the entire case. In terms of price, $ 1
The source also speaks of AirPower and says the mat will be thicker than originally intended thanks to its 8-7-7 spool However, in the configuration Apple will address users with "exclusive" features, which are not expected with the mat to iOS 13. However, it is unclear what "features" Apple could or could hold back from a loading mat via software. The report, however, calls for a price of $ 149, but it feels more like a guess than a confirmed word.
Interestingly, a separate sketchy report from DroidShout earlier this week also called for a new grip coating. However, for the debut on the back of the iPhone 11, there is still no concrete evidence to support this claim.
The Last Time MySmartPrice and AirPods 2 hit the headlines in November when the site struck first of all reporting Bluetooth 5.0 headphones that received SIG certification.
The most in-depth knowledge we have about AirPods 2 comes from Digitimes, who announced last month that headphones will be released in the first half of this year with enhanced health monitoring features.  This is the first real conversation we've heard about a new coating that could better serve future Apple products. Are you excited? How about the prospect of black AirPods?
