The Apple-owned headphone-maker Beats officially unveiled the new ‘Powerbeats Pro’ on Wednesday. In line with previous rumors and reports, the new model is a totally wireless version of the popular sport earbuds that comes with Apple’s new H1 chip and ‘Hey Siri’ functionality.
Evidence has been discovered in the just-released iOS 12.2 software update that seems to confirm rumors of an impending launch of new wire-free Powerbeats. 9to5Mac’s Guilherme Rambo spotted images and animations hidden within the update that appear to be wire-free Powerbeats headphones, sitting in a black charging case.
It’s been nearly 10 years since the first Beats by Dr. Dre headphones were first produced. To celebrate this anniversary, Apple has revealed a new Beats “Decade Collection,” which goes on sale on Friday, June 1.
Apple’s rumored noise-cancelling over-ear headphones could cannibalize some Beats sales, with a new Bloomberg report saying that Apple has struggled with the design of the upcoming accessory. In addition to noise-canceling capabilities, the company reportedly plans to include similar wireless pairing functionality to its AirPods.
