Other than the AirPods 2, another product that fans have been waiting for since 2017 is the AirPower wireless charging mat that was teased during the launch of iPhone X.

A new generation of AirPods has been hinted at for quite a while now, but a fresh rumor suggests we'll be getting a new version of the wireless earbuds this year, and they'll be much easier to hold on to.

According to an inside source, the new AirPods 2 will look nearly identical to their predecessors but will carry some under-the-hood changes like better bass response and will include additional health-related tech such as a heart rate sensor. It has been compared to the glass back of Google Pixel 3.

There's also a rumor going around that the new AirPods 2 will feature a new coating for better grip.

In terms of battery life, AirPods are likely to be more or less similar to the original AirPods, as the battery size is said to be identical.

As for the price, the AirPods 2 will reportedly cost $199 but it is unclear whether this price is mere speculation or comes from a reliable source. Interestingly, there has been a lot of demand for a black variant of the AirPods and it appears that the second generation of the wireless earphones will have one. However, a new wireless charging case will have a slightly smaller battery, according to this new report.

The source says that Apple is working on a few "exclusive features" for the AirPower, but that they will "not be available until iOS 13 is released".

As for the price of AirPower, it will cost $149 during the official launch and it will be able to charge three devices simultaneously. Allegedly, the next generation AirPods 2 will come with loads of new features but its design will be the same except for one thing: its coating. That all sounds great, but there is one downside, and as this is Apple you can probably guess what that is. Tell us your thoughts down in the comments.
