Digging into the 13.2 developer beta, 9to5Mac discovered an icon that may depict the company's next-generation AirPods. For the moment, it's best not to read too much into the icon. That said, if it is representative of what the next-generation AirPods will look like, the one interesting detail we can glean is that they'll potentially feature interchangeable rubber tips. This would address the one issue almost everyone has with Apple's Bluetooth headphones: their one size fits all approach.

  Report says Apple is about to surprise us with new ‘AirPods Pro’ that’ll launch in the next 2 weeks Apple refreshed the AirPods earlier this year, but that was only a minor upgrade for the iconic wireless earphones. AirPods 2 got a case that can be recharged wirelessly and a brand new chip, but the device still looks exactly as the first-gen model — both of them are available in stores. But Apple is also expected to release a brand new AirPods version later this year, on in early 2020, which we’ve been referring to as AirPods 3. A new story from China claims the actual name of Apple’s next-gen AirPods is AirPods Pro. The redesigned earphones are supposed to be even more expensive than AirPods 2 and might launch as soon as late October.

If true, the launch would give Apple yet another new pair of headphones to go into the holiday shopping season. Earlier this week the company announced a new line of Beats Solo headphones, called the Solo Pro, that feature noise cancellation as well.

There have been plenty of rumors that Apple would introduce new AirPods in the not-too-distant future, with 9to5Mac finding a peek at the possible design in a recent iOS beta and images of the leaked casing making their way to SlashLeaks.

New AirPods would also give Apple some updated hardware to compete with Amazon's forthcoming Echo Buds rival that are set to be released later this month as well.

Apple did not respond to a CNET request for comment.

An AirPods Pro replacement costs $89 per earbud .
Perhaps unsurprisingly, given their higher price than the standard AirPods, it'll cost more for you to repair or replace the new AirPods Pro through Apple Support. Out of warranty, the price this time around is $89 per earbud, and it costs the same to have the wireless charging case repaired or replaced. If you lose an AirPods Pro earbud, Apple charges $89 for a new one or $99 to replace a misplaced case. For comparison, it costs $69 to replace or repair an AirPod, $59 for the regular case and $69 for the wireless charging case. AirPods Pro cost $249, while AirPods are priced at $159 or $199, depending on whether you opt for the wireless charging case.
