Apple is reportedly launching truly wireless Powerbeats earbuds in April

Apple Beats is preparing to launch truly wireless Powerbeats in April, CNET reports. The CNET source that says it is close to the retail channel, says that the new headphones will use the new Apple H1 chip that is used in the new wireless charging AirPods, and have the same Siri always on assistant voice. It is also expected to have a longer battery life than AirPods, which have approximately five hours of listening time.

CNET notes that the synchronization of the new wireless Powerbeats is in line with the timing of the announcement of the BeatsX, which was shortly after Apple introduced AirPods for the first time in 2016. Since last year rumors have been circulating the high-end AirPods, suggesting that they would be over-ear headphones with noise cancellation. The wireless charging AirPods announced this week do not match what the rumors have been suggesting, but Powerbeats could certainly point to a market that is looking for more features than those offered by AirPods. Current Powerbeats are resistant to sweat and offer a safer fit than AirPods, to begin with.

No pricing information yet, although the Powerbeats3 Wireless (to which a cable is still attached) currently sells for $ 199.95 on the Beats website. but they are available for only $ 99 on Amazon, which indicates that there may be an update. If the rumors are true, the new Wireless Powerbeats3 would be the first in the entire Beats line to truly be wireless headphones.
