Apple's next AirPods just leaked (and there's good news and bad news)

Apple surprised us all this month with a last-minute press release announcing the brand new (and very expensive) AirPods Max. These look extremely different to the company's iconic in-ear buds, but it seems the hugely popular originals are next in line for an update. However, if new leaks are to be believed, it isn't all good news for AirPods fans.

According to one Korean tech site, the next iteration of Apple's base-level AirPods will arrive in the first half of next year, featuring an updated design. And unfortunately it seems they'll also be taking a cue from their larger over-ear siblings by sporting a surprisingly high price tag. If you fancy some AirPods that won't burn a hole in your pocket, these AirPods pre-Christmas deals are the best we've seen.
