Apple released AirPods 3 and a minor update to AirPods Pro bringing MagSafe capability – but its AirPods Max haven’t seen any changes. AirPods Max aren’t even one year old yet, however they have already been proven successful for Apple. These are also the only AirPods available in color options (right now).
Apple is working on a lighter version of AirPods Max. These will be made of different, more lightweight materials than the current AirPods Max and cost around $350.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman said that eventually, another “sportier” version will also come. So, a consumer version and a prosumer version. That would be a good move for Apple – as the company was criticized for the $550 starting price of the AirPods Max.
The sportier version will feature mostly the same design, just made with fewer premium materials. This model will come in colors similar to the iPad Air, iMac, and AirPods Max. Apple is expecting this model to also be a huge success.
The AirPods Max don’t really need an update right now, as they are still brand-new headphones. But in 2022, since all the current AirPods are on a two-year cycle, AirPods Max are said to get a few new colors. I’ve heard purple may be on the docket. Apple could also add Starlight and a Product RED model. Current color options include Sky Blue, Green, Space Gray, Pink, and Silver.
There may be a few minor updates such as improved battery life otherwise, there isn’t much we should expect regarding specs. It would be nice for Apple to give us a few new colors for the AirPods Max which may eventually replace the Beats Studio.
The AirPods Max currently have a few sales going on where you can get them for just $479 and sometimes less.
Would you mind a color refresh of the AirPods Max? Let us know!
