APPLE may be working on a revised pair of AirPods with a NEW design.

The iconic wireless earbuds seem to be everywhere – but they could soon look very different.

Apple is reportedly developing a pair of AirPods without stems.

They would simply sit in the ear like little buds, possibly with a wing tip design to keep them in the ear.

That’s according to the Apple Blog 9to5Macciting respected technology expert and industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

Kuo says the new design will only be available for the AirPods Pro model — at least initially.

“We expect Apple to launch AirPods Pro 2… with new selling points including a new form factor design, support for the Apple Lossless (ALAC) format,” said Kuo, an analyst at TF Securities.

“And a charging case that can emit a sound for users to track.

“We’re bullish on demand for AirPods Pro 2 and estimate shipments will reach 18-20 million units in 2022.”


Apple first launched the AirPods in 2016 – with amused fans initially comparing the design of the electric toothbrush heads.

But the AirPods are now a cultural icon, covered by teens and adults alike.

Apple has since released multiple generations of AirPods, including a Pro model.

And while they all offer different properties, they all have a stem on each bud.

Removing the stem would significantly reduce the size of the device.

It would also potentially force Apple to reconsider physical controls, as AirPods Pro owners can currently press the stem to perform functions – like pausing playback.

Apple could potentially move that touch control to the earbud itself.

Of course, Apple hasn’t confirmed any such plans – so take any rumors with a pinch of salt for now.

Pod Predictions

When will these fancy new AirPods Pro be available?

Unfortunately, there’s no definitive answer, even though the original AirPods Pro are now three years old.

Apple will be holding a special event on September 7th where we’ll likely see the launch of the iPhone 14.

This could be a great opportunity for Apple to release an upgrade to one of its most popular iPhone accessories.

If not, there’s also talk of Apple hosting a second event for a new iPad launch in October.

Unfortunately, we won’t know the truth until Apple CEO Tim Cook takes the stage later this year.
