Apple sets ambitious production goals for AirPods 4

Apple is rumored to launch AirPods 4 later this year. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who is usually accurate in his reporting, has now revealed more information about TWS’s next-generation headphones. Earlier, he reported that the company would introduce two new AirPods 4 models. Read on to find out all the details.

Production of AirPods 4 and other details have been announced

Gurman says mass production of AirPods 4 will begin in May through partners GoerTek and LuxShare Precision. They will likely arrive alongside the iPhone 16 series in September or possibly a month later in October. Apple plans to produce 20 to 25 million units of the next generation TWS headphones. The expected production volumes are also higher than those of the previous models.

Apple is expected to introduce AirPods 4 in two models. They are said to be codenamed B768E and B768M. The former is called “entry-level”, while the latter may mean “mid-level”. The emergence of these TWS will lead to the discontinuation of the second and third generation AirPods. This means that the AirPods lineup will include the entry-level and mid-level AirPods 4, AirPods Pro (2nd generation), and AirPods Max.

According to a previous report, the AirPods 4 are expected to have a new design, improved fit, USB-C, and more. The mid-range model will reportedly have ANC and the Find My tracking feature found in the AirPods Pro.

Gurman also said that the AirPods Pro will be updated no earlier than next year. The current generation of headphones is expected to receive a hearing aid mode in the upcoming iOS 18.
