Last year, Apple’s AirPods might have received a ton of criticism towards the design of the wireless earphones but they remained a popular purchase for iPhone and different smartphone users. Apple will be using this success catalyst of the first-generation AirPods to release a better variant, which has been leaked via a render. However, from a design point of view, you might be disappointed with what you see.

For several years, Apple maintained the same smartphone design and to be honest, it was starting to get a little boring and it looks like the company is going to maintain this approach with the launch of the second-generation AirPods. Though these wireless earphones might look nearly the same, there is one noticeable difference; the LED charging indicator placed slightly below the compartment area.

This LED charging indicator will most likely switch between colors to inform the user when the AirPods are charging, or have been completely charged. We also expected the next-gen AirPods to feature better battery life and hopefully, Apple will include an accessory that will allow users to hold on to both earphones without the fear of losing them.

It is unclear what this version’s official name will be, so we’ll just refer to them as AirPods 2.0 for now. Apple is expected to charge a premium for this product too since it will no doubt provide a seamless connection between your iOS device when you’re going to be using it for media consumption. What price tag do you think will be attached to these?

Better yet, what features do you think are going to accompany Apple’s AirPods 2.0? Tell us your thoughts down in the comments.
