Like the iPhone 12, Apple's much-rumoured over-ear headphones were an unfortunate no-show at the company's virtual 'Time Flies' event last week. But just a few days later, it seems we've been given our first (albeit slightly less official) glimpse at the design of Apple's so-called AirPods studio thanks to an Apple leaker.

The leaked image reveals a very different product to the current AirPods range. Indeed, not only do the 'Studio' cans feature large, oval ear cups, but they also appear to come in a black finish – a departure from the ubiquitous tiny, white design of the in-ear models.
