By all reports, Apple has been working on its own over-ear headphones for quite a while, although until recently it’s something we’ve only heard vague whisperings about. However, it does seem like this year could be the year they finally arrive.
Once again, thanks to the iOS 14 leak, code has been found referencing the headphones, and then a leak surfaced from Jon Prosser suggested that they could debut in June, likely at WWDC. Later reports also seem to have nailed down the name as AirPods Studio, and have suggested that production is already underway.
Our take: It seems obvious these are coming this year, and it’s now more a question of when than if. The iOS 14 code suggests a fall release, but it wouldn’t be at all out of character for Apple to debut them at WWDC but schedule them for a release later on this year.
