Joe Rossignol for MacRumors:

“AirPods Pro” will come in as many as eight colors, including White, Black, and a new Midnight Green finish to match iPhone 11 Pro models, according to a Chinese-language report from the Economic Daily News.

The report also backs rumors that the AirPods Pro will feature active noise cancellation and water resistance. Last month, in the iOS 13.2 beta filesystem, MacRumors discovered an icon depicting never-before-seen, in-ear AirPods with rubber ear tips that would presumably help to block out ambient noise.

Apple plans to release the AirPods Pro in time for the holiday shopping season this year, according to the Economic Daily News, with the report claiming the earphones could be unveiled as early as next week.

MacDailyNews Take: “AirPods Pro” still seems ungainly. “Pro AirPods” sounds better, but of course doesn’t fit with Apple’s penchant for using “Pro” after the product name (Mac Pro, MacBook Pro, iPad Pro, iPhone Pro). Either way, having a raft of colors from which to choose will be a welcome addition!


  1. Adding “pro” doesn’t make sense in this case, because AirPods are for FUN! 😉 It’s too serious and dilutes the meaning of “pro” for Apple’s other products. Also, I see how making them available in different colors will drive upgrade sales. But there’s an advantage to “only available in white” because they’re highly visible to other potential customers, not only of AirPods but of Apple products (iPhone, iPad, Mac…) in general.

    Like early iPods that came with white earbuds, driving attention of potential customers to Apple back when Apple was still recovering as a company and a brand. Apple never made those earbuds in different colors because white was visible and “iconic.” I suppose Apple doesn’t need extra brand recognition these days, and AirPods are now a key profit-making product, not just an “accessory” for its other products. 🙂

  2. Finally an excursion beyond the fit that predictably falls out, for some, except when being mannequin-like, or wearing the plastic rubber.

    To bad this attempt is astronomically over-priced. I’ll keep looking to and buying Anker products that fit well, sound fine and don’t make me feel like I’ve been had.

    Yes, I’m left with the onerous task of manually connecting with the/a device for the music/call. Just the thought of the effort, brings the need for a nap.

  3. I recently lost my AirPods on a cruise in the Med.
    I bought a pair of Skullcandy in my local supermarket to replace them for £50 ($65) and guess what?
    They don’t fall out my ears.
