There are many rumors that warned the arrival of new AirPods for this year and in the end there were rumors. In this case KGI warns again that the arrival of A renewed AirPods can arrive during the second half of 2018.
One of the details that we were marked on the retina was during the presentation of the new iPhone models and their AirPower charging base, which showed the AirPods or rather the AirPods charging box with the new wireless Qi feature.
This presentation of this box increased the rumor mill about a possible launch of new AirPods ahead of schedule, but now the analyst is back in the spotlight Ming-Chi Kuo, with a report stating that Apple will release a new version for later and it is possible that that would be the moment chosen to add the inductive load to the AirPods box.
In any case the crossing of information has a complicated point to understand, I explain. Apple, showed that the novelty for the following AirPods would be the box with Qi load to dispense with the cable and this is something we all saw in the presentation of the iPhone X and it is totally true, so launching a box for the current AirPods with Qi and then in the second half of the year launching renewed AirPods can be contradictory and especially counterproductive.
In addition, this type of information can “slow down” sales a bit since we know that something new is coming. On the other hand it must be confirmed that this is not noticeable today if we look at the shortage of AirPods that Apple has right now in its store, shortage that Ming-Chi Kuo himself argues for the problems that The main battery PCB does in the supply chain. Are AirPods still selling well until product shortages occur or is this really due to Apple's production problems? Will Apple launch a Qi cargo box before renewing the AirPods or does the renovation directly consist of this Qi box?
