In addition to earlier rumours of a pair of Apple wireless headphones, it looks like the company is also working on what’s called the AirPods X. The name suggests that it’s an update to its AirPods Pro. Alongside these are rumours that the iPhone maker may be looking to dissolve Beats, the company it acquired back in 2014.
These details came courtesy of Jon Prosser on Twitter, with some additional details about the two audio products. For the Apple AirPods X, it would come with a model number of B517, and is aimed at the sporty crowd. Prosser claims that it will be announced between September and October, for for US$200 (~RM870).
As for the Apple headphones, Prosser says they come with the model number B515. They will be announced during WWDC, and will have a price tag of US$350 (~RM1522).

In addition to these details, Prosser’s tweet ends by saying the company will later phase out Beats with the release of these products. He argues that the company intends to build up its own audio product line, like AirPods. This is so that all of its company’s products can all ship under the Apple name.
At any rate, it looks like we’ll be seeing the Apple wireless headphones before the AirPods X. After all, WWDC 2020 is planned for June 2020. It will also be hosted entirely online.
