Apple Announces Powerbeats Pro: Release Date, Price And Features Detailed

Apple finally going to give users slightly more viable batteries

iPhone 11 will be able to charge other Apple gadgets by placing them back-to-back

What's interesting is that the PowerBeats Pro uses Apple's new H1 chip which is also found on the latest 2nd gen AirPods.

The latest Powerbeats Pro in-ear music makers have just been revealed by the U.S. firm and they look set to offer a range of upgrades including a smaller and lighter design, better sound and 9-hour battery life.

New Beats by Dre Powerbeats Pro will launch in May in numerous countries including Canada, priced at $329.95. Apple is actually offering two versions of AirPods 2, one packaged with a regular case, for $159, and another with the same earbuds but a wireless charging case, for $199.

Just like AirPods, Powerbeats Pro are cable-free, meaning there's no wire connecting the left and right buds.

Apple is going to include reverse wireless charging tech in its upcoming 2019 iPhones, due to be unveiled this fall. Both companies set to benefit from Apple's inclusion of two-way wireless charging as the average selling price of key components will be increased.

Powerbeats Pro will be truly wireless, without the connecting wire that Powerbeats 3 have.

Apple Watch 5 will use OLED display from Japan Display
Digitimes also claims that its sources say that all of the new iPhones will be OLED by 2020, which is in line with other rumours. Indeed, the expectations of numerous Apple fans for a premium yet genuinely compact iPhone may simply be figured it out.

If the report is true, Apple will be playing catch-up with Samsung, whose Galaxy S10 smartphones can charge different gadgets, including the Galaxy Watch Active and Galaxy Buds, using the wireless Qi standard.

Thurrott said: "They are not cheap at all, but I doubt you will get the AirPods-like experience anywhere else".

The AirPods comparison sort of grinds to a halt when you look at the design and fit of the Powerbeats Pro.

The earbuds are designed for athletes and Apple says it worked with real athletes to know what they want. Always on beam-forming microphones let you say, "Siri, play the Alan Parsons Project on Apple Music", while you're running without touching anything.

Powerbeats Pro act like AirPods, with no power button.
