Apple releases limited-edition ‘Year of the Tiger’ AirPods Pro in celebration of Chinese New Year
In celebration of Chinese New Year on February 1, Apple has released new limited-edition “Year of the Tiger” AirPods Pro to customers in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macao, featuring a special custom-designed tiger emoji.
Available now online and in-store, the new AirPods Pro come with a special retail box with the “Year of the Tiger” emoji in red, with the same emoji engraved onto the accompanying AirPods Pro Wireless Charging Case.
A post to Chinese microblogging website Weibo (via MacRumors) shows that with the special AirPods, customers purchasing the earbuds in an Apple retail store are also receiving a set of 12 red envelopes with each of the Chinese zodiac signs printed on them in emoji form.
Earlier this week, Apple revealed that it will be hosting a special shopping event to celebrate Japanese New Year from January 2 to January 3, offering up to ¥24,000 worth of Apple Store gift cards to customers making eligible purchases during the event, as well as giving the first 20,000 Japanese customers who purchase an iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, or iPhone SE a free limited-edition AirTag engraved with a Japanese New Year special emoji.
