It is said to go into mass production during the first half of 2021. Kuo further says that Apple decided to go with SiP because of the declining demand for its second-gen AirPods. Luxshare ICT will be the main supplier for the new hardware, Kuo added. Alongside the standard model, Kuo also says that the second-generation AirPods Pro will go into production in the fourth quarter of 2021 or the first quarter of 2022. In either case, the device will not be released before 2022.
The report does not reveal anything else about this. The post also suggests to us that there will be no new AirPod launch this year.

In addition, the company is also expected to launch its new Beats earphones shaped like the AirPods Pro by the end of 2020.
