Beats Studio Buds leak in an apparent reversal for the Beats brand
Apple may be expected to release new AirPods this year, but it seems that it has new Beats earbuds planned, too. According to multiple sources, the Beats Studio Buds are in an advanced stage of development, a pair of TWS earbuds that will be available in at least three colours.
It is unclear when Apple will announce the Beats Studio Buds, and there are no indications that it will be anytime soon. However, Apple has added Beats Studio Buds images in iOS 14.6 and tvOS 14.6 betas, so it is clearly laying the groundwork to launch the earbuds.
Steve Moser has published animated Beats Studio Buds renders too, which you can view here. The emergence of the Beats Studio Buds is at odds with a claim made by Jon Prosser in April 2020, where he insisted that Apple would phase out Beats in favour of AirPods. The Beats Studio Buds suggests otherwise, in our opinion, but we could be wrong.
