Apple Announces the next generation of Airpods
Apple Airpods 4 Overview
Apple’s AirPods have been with us for six years now, and have already become synonymous with true wireless earphones. We’re going to sidestep ANC and instead focus on a handful of smaller updates. A battery life longer than the current six hours would be welcome, along with faster charging, and (finally) a switch from Lightning to USB-C for the charging case. The AirPods shrunk in size for the third generation, so we’re not expecting a major visual overhaul for AirPods 4 in that regard, nor do we expect a drastic change for the charge case (other than the USB-C port).
We also want to see Apple do more with its spatial audio technology. It makes for a clever party trick when you turn your head and the audio appears to shift to match wherever your iPhone or iPad is. But we want Apple to show us why this technology matters, and what it can do to genuinely improve the listening experience.

AIRPODS 4 Release Date
That said, Apple tends to update its entry-level AirPods every couple of years. And with the AirPods 3 just a few months old at the time of writing, fans shouldn’t really expect AirPods 4 to land until late 2023 or even early 2024.
