Hands-on photo allegedly shows black AirPods Pro casing

The leak: Apple may be working on a new color option for next-generation AirPods, according to Mr.white (50% accurate).

  • The image, which we are unable to verify the authenticity of, shows the inner portion of an AirPods Pro case…in black
  • Similar parts leaked ahead of AirPods Pro unveiling in late 2019
  • Rumors of black AirPods have been swirling since the first-generation version were released in 2016, but this is the first image leak we have ever seen

Our take: There seems to have been quite some care taken to protect the identity of the person who took the photo, but I’m still so skeptical that this will actually happen. Seems too good to be true!
