Drastic Apple AirPods redesign could ditch iconic features

What's that we hear? Why, it's the sound of the latest Apple AirPods rumours – and it all sounds pretty dramatic indeed. The second-generation of the AirPods Pro are on their way, as are the the third-generation of Apple's original earbuds and it seems there is an abundance of exciting changes and updates on the cards – including fitness tracking, drastic changes to the stems and even new colour variations (gasp). 

It's been a hot minute since the original AirPods last had a facelift, since 2019 in fact. And the AirPods Pro have also been around since then with no update either, so this development feels overdue. If you need a new pair of 'pods, be sure to keep an eye on our Apple Amazon Prime Day deals post and our general best Apple deals post, both of which could nab you a bargain.
