Apple may release new versions of AirPods and AirPods Pro

Apple plans to update its AirPods over the next year to capitalize on the success of products that have become a major source of growth, according to a Bloomberg report Monday.

The agency quoted people familiar with the matter who said that the tech giant is developing two new models, the third generation of low-spec AirPods and the second version of the advanced AirPods Pro.

These models are used with other new audio devices from Apple, such as HomePod mini and upcoming wired headphones. The agency said that Apple is considering launching another smart amplifier that acts as an intermediary between (HomePod) and (HomePod mini).

The apparel, home, and accessories division (including AirPods) recorded sales in the last quarter of $ 6.5 billion, up more than 70% from the previous two years.
