Another day, another new rumor about the long-awaited AirPods update.
The report also seems to confirm previous reports of a new in-ear, metal design for the earbuds, and noise cancellation.
But it seems that the upgrades will also come at a cost: the report says the new AirPods Pro will cost 8,000 New Taiwan Dollars which currently converts to around $260, a steep mark-up from the current cost ($159.99, or $199.99 if you want a wireless charging case).
One more thing: the new AirPods may be available even sooner than expected. Rumors have suggested either a 2019 or 2020 launch but the new report indicates that we’ll see the AirPods Pro by the end of October to take advantage of the upcoming holiday shopping season.
