In such a great season, rumors have been reported that an item called "Apple AirPods (X Generation)" is registered in the inventory management system of mass retailers in the United States.
YouTuber's Jon Prosser posted the following image on Twitter and speculates that "it may be Apple's over-ear headphones (StudioPods), which is rumored to be coming soon."

The price is listed as $ 399.99, but the official price for AirPods Pro is $ 249. In other words, it is rumored that it is an entry version of AirPods Pro“ AirPods Pro Lite (provisional) ''It is different from this, and it is likely to be a new high-end device.
Prosser also states that the product lists three SKUs (minimum units of inventory), which implies that there are three color options available.
And AppleInsider has heard from multiple target employees that "placeholders for new products are common." Such data has been added that the price information is correct, but the product name is not, and it is unlikely that it is actually called "AirPods (X Generation)".
In addition, it has been reported that products with placeholders are generally shipped within one month, and may be shipped one week after being registered in the inventory management system.
Analysts familiar with Apple insider informationMing-Chi KuoI just mentioned the forecast for high-end headphones the other day. He advocated the release of “ genuine over-ear headphones that are not Beats '' as early as 2018,U.S. BloombergRumors about "over-ear type, high-end products that support noise cancellation".
furtherUS 9to5MacReports that they have received an image indicating that "Apple TV Gen X", "Apple Watch Series X" bands "and" Apple iPod Touch X Generation "are also registered as follow-up reports from the target. The Watch band costs $ 49.99, and the Apple TV costs $ 179, the same price as the current 32GB Apple TV 4K. And the iPod touch price of $ 399 matches the iPod touch 256GB model.
However, according to 9to5Mac, the target systemAirPower, a wireless charging mat that was discontinued last yearIt is said that references to are still included. Therefore, the above credibility is not necessarily certain, but I would like to wait for a follow-up report from another direction.
