Are new Apple headphones coming?

Rumors of new Apple headphones have been hotting up in the run up to WWDC 2020 on June 22, where we're hoping to see the first-ever Apple over-ear headphones alongside the iOS 14 update, iPadOS 14, macOS 10.16 and watchOS 7.

The so-called AirPods Studio were apparently revealed early, after 9to5Mac discovered icons representing the rumored cans in iOS 14 code – and since then, numerous analysts have come forward to say that the Apple headphones will launch on June 22. 

The AirPods Studio, which we're expecting to come with noise cancellation among other cool features, could eclipse the Beats Solo Pro; that's why these Beats discounts could be yet another indication that the new over-ear headphones are soon to be released. 

That's not all – we're also hoping to see new Apple true wireless earbuds at WWDC (though we think this is less likely than an AirPods Studio launch). Those Powerbeats Pro discounts could be Apple's way of shifting stock ahead of a true wireless launch, which could include the rumored Powerbeats Pro 2, AirPods Pro Lite, or AirPods 3

We don't have to wait too long to find out what WWDC will bring, but these Beats deals are a tantalizing hint that the annual event could be huge for the world of headphones.
