Apple is said to be preparing new headphones. No, these are not AirPods, but rather new Beats headphones: the Powerbeats 4. Traces of these new headphones were discovered in the beta version of iOS 13.3 released in December last and in the final version iOS 13.3.1 published a few hours ago. There are even icons of these headphones.
As can be seen in the image above which shows the Powerbeats Pro left, the news icon Powerbeats 4 in the middle and the Powerbeats 3 right, the Powerbeats 4 would have a design that will flow from a mix between the design of current Powerbeats 3 headphones and that of Powerbeats Pro.
The Powerbeats 4 seem to have a more curved design that is similar to that of the Powerbeats Pro, with the same inclined in-ear shape and the same enveloping ear cups. Besides, lPowerbeats 4, like Powerbeats 3, will not be completely wireless. A wire will connect the two headphones together, but the connection to a device will be wireless.
As new, the Powerbeats 4 should offer the same functionality as those found with the AirPods 2, the AirPods Pro and the Powerbeats Pro: a H1 chip in order to have a improved connectivity and the support of “Say Siri “.
It’s not known when the Powerbeats 4 will be released, but the icons found in iOS 13.3.1 suggest a release in a short time.
