Apple isn’t working on second-gen AirPods Max but new colors may be on the way
Apple isn’t working on a second-generation version of its high-end $549 AirPods Max, according to Bloomberg reporter Mark German.
In a report on Friday, which suggested updated “AirPods 3” could launch before the end of the year, Gurman said while no updates to the AirPods Max are on the horizon, we may see new colors be introduced.
Apple launched its new AirPods Max over-ear headphones last year. Priced at $549, featuring a custom acoustic design, H1 chips, Adaptive EQ, Active Noise Cancellation, Transparency Mode, and spatial audio, the wearables quickly sold out within an hour of release, with some colors still showing as unavailable for delivery without week’s worth of waiting.
The last AirPods-related hardware introduction from Apple was the over-ear AirPods Max headphones in December. That $549 pair earned criticism for bugs and its high price but praise for its materials and sound. Apple only recently caught up with demand for the product, and it is not currently working on a second generation of the AirPods Max, though it has discussed launching additional color variations in the future.
