The biggest change rumored for AirPods Pro is an overhauled design, which was first spotted in an alleged leak out of the supply chain depicting an AirPods form factor with rubber ear tips. But despite the initial sketchiness of that report, the new design was pretty much confirmed in a leaked icon spotted in a beta version of iOS 13.2.
That redesign will also extend to the charging case, which will be slightly larger and a different shape to accommodate the new wireless headphones. And case makers are already placing bets that the design will turn out to be genuine. Apple may offer a Qi-compatible wireless charging case for AirPods Pro, which could help differentiate it from Powerbeats Pro. But that hasn’t been confirmed.
