If so, it's likely Apple fans won't have to wait much longer for a new and improved pair of AirPods. Its hinge will also be reportedly redesigned to support changes in internal design, and to withstand higher thermal requirements.

AirPods will get an "all-new" design in 2020, according to the note.

I've contended for a while now that the AirPods are the best product Apple has released in recent memory. Suppose Kuo has his finger on the pulse, the new models will apparently have wireless charging support. There's also a possibility the upgraded AirPods might be water resistant and will feature noise cancellation. For the first time about the appearance of this technology in headphones has become known in September 2017, when the company introduced a wireless charging station AirPower and the case for AirPods with wireless charging.

If you can't wait for Apple, there are creative third party solutions out there which provide wireless charging for your AirPod case. There is no word on whether or not the Airpower Mat will be involved with this "wireless charging support", although it would make a lot of sense if it were. The report further suggests that the new model will also feature upgraded specifications than its predecessor.

The AirPods update was expected when Apple launched its 2018 iPhone lineup, but it was not to be. As it is, the current gen AirPods went in for some criticism for its looks when first launched back in 2016. Kuo says demand for the wireless earphones will see a dramatic uptick in the coming years. He also added that AirPods may be Apple's most popular accessory ever, and he forecasted huge sales growth for the product. As a point of reference, it's believed that Apple sold approximately 13-14 million AirPods in 2017.
