Apple already confirmed a new AirPods case, but we expect to see a new version of AirPods this year as well. In September we could see AirPods 2 release to the public alongside new iPhones.
The exact upgrades aside from wireless charging is unknown at this time, but we expect to see better connectivity with a new W1 chip upgrade and potentially new AirPods color options.
Ming-Chi Kou says that the new Airpods will use a "smaller Quartz component", but does not elaborate on what that will do to the consumer facing features of the device or allude to any changes in appearance.
