Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has highlighted the importance of AirPods for Apple in his latest research note. The analyst notes that AirPods are going to surge in popularity over the next few years and become an important product for Apple. Their popularity will also lead to the likes of Google and Amazon into releasing their own wireless earbuds.
Another day, another Apple patent app. As usual, this is not an indicator of what’s actually coming down the pipe, but at least a glimpse of what engineers and designers at Apple have considered at one point or another.
In his latest investor note, reputed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says that AirPods are going to be Apple’s best product in terms of growth rate for the foreseeable future. He also claims that Apple will launch upgraded AirPods with wireless charging in Q1, 2019.

Almost two years after Apple unveiled the AirPods, Sennheiser is out with its own wireless earbuds competitor — the Momentum True Wireless earbuds. Similar to Apple’s own AirPods, the Momentum earbuds are truly wireless, come with a case that automatically recharges the earbuds, and offers one-tap access to Siri or Google Assistant.
Most of the attention on Apple’s supply chain is focused on what’s coming right around the corner, but that isn’t stopping some analysts from making predictions on what’s going to happen next year.
We first heard about a wireless charging case for the truly wireless headphones, the AirPods, back in September of last year.
