There have been rumors which all predicted a redesigned Apple AirPods which will allow for a better noise cancellation. Many of these predictions never came true because Apple would go ahead and unveil the same old design for the second generation of the AirPods but adding wireless charging as well as faster H1 chip.
But that still doesn’t mean nothing would change as there is a high probability that a newer design might be released soon. According to MacRumor’s Steve Moser who sis also an iOS developer has shared a tweet which shows the new AirPods design in the beta version of the iOS 13.2
Right of the bat, the new logo for AirPods is significantly different than both the first and second generation of totally wireless earphones from Apple. Instead of a plastic acoustic outlet that sits in the outer ear, they seem to have an in-ear style design with a silicone cap that extends into the ear canal.
Meanwhile there was a leaked redesigned AirPods casing which was previously leaked by a Chinese supplier and they look identical to the icons shown on the iOS 13.2 beta. The images below showed this representation in full indepth. If the redesign is actually going to be implemented, the next AirPods 3 will definitely have a much more better sound quality because it would fit right better into the ear canal and enhance active noise cancellation which is also built into the new WatchOS 6.
Talking about their design, both the logo and leaked images exhibit a slit on top which is believed to play a crucial role in active noise cancellation that the AirPods have been long rumoured to attain with an updated model.
How the noise cancellation works is by actively reducing or neutralizing ambient nosies around you making the audio quality or the sounds coming through from the earbuds to be enhanced and more concentrated rather than getting distracted. Devices equipped with active noise cancellation are capable of analyzing the outside noise and with the help of complex software algorithms, they generate an inverted sound which can cancel the unwanted sound coming from an external source.
Another intriguing finding that can be derived from the image shared by the developer is an Apple device with a top-mounted power button. Even though the power button on Apple iPads is also located on the top, this could be the successor of the iPhone SE which is reported to launch early next year.
Anyhow it is, we definitely know Apple will make better designs of their devices just as they’ve always being doing it in the days of the iPhone 4 and 5 with the beautiful edgy designs.
