DigiTimes is not exactly one of the most successful media for rumors. However, by having some access to the suppliers’ production line, it often offers interesting clues. In this case too the rumour fits with those of other media such as Bloomberg with Mark Gurman.
This new generation is expected to include noise cancellation . A noise cancellation that will be produced digitally, as they will most likely not change their design to isolate the ear. On the other hand, there are also rumours that they will improve the resistance to water hammer .
The release date is not entirely clear, and can vary by different factors. In any case, it is likely that we will see this new generation between September 2019 (iPhone launch) and March 2020 (Apple’s spring release). And yes, we will probably have many more rumors about it as the months go by.
