A few days ago, rumors were circulating about the arrival of Beats’ headphones that would compete with Apple’s new AirPods, and just today, with the launch of iOS 12.2, images of these devices have come to light. According to 9to5Mac, the new headphones will be called Powerbeats Pro and although they are almost identical to Powerbeats 3, they are truly wireless like the AirPods .

The information also makes it clear that Powerbeats Pro will be available in black and white variations, and would have a case similar to that of the AirPods, which will theoretically charge the Powerbeats Pro headphones when not in use .
At the moment we don’t have more details on topics such as the battery life that these headphones will offer, but let’s remember that Powerbeats3 offers a range of up to 12 hours. However, it is not clear whether the truly wireless version could match that figure .
Rumors indicate that Powerbeats Pro will hit the market starting next month, and it is said that will include the same updated H1 chip as the second generation AirPods , as well as “Hey Siri” support. At the moment the price of Powerbeats Pro is not clear, but since iOS 12.2 includes the resources for the new headphones, we will probably soon know all the details of these new accessories.
Last week Cupertino’s firm made several launches, among them the new generation of AirPods, which arrived on the market with an updated H1 chip that provides faster switching between devices , faster connections when making phone calls, “Hey Siri” support and longer talk time. Rumor has it that this chip could also be included in updated Powerbeats.
