New 'Beats Studio Buds' Revealed in iOS and tvOS 14.6

Apple is working on new wire-free in-ear Beats-branded earbuds, according to images in the tvOS 14.6 and iOS 14.6 betas that were found by MacRumors contributor Steve Moser.

Beats Studio Buds feature 3
The Beats Studio Buds are unlike any prior Beats headphones that Apple has released as there is no ear wrap as with the Powerbeats Pro or a wire like the Powerbeats. The Beats Studio Buds are tiny in design and are similar to in-ear earbuds from companies like Samsung and Google. The images indicate multiple color options will be available, including black, white, and red, and there will be a matching oval-shaped charging case.


This small and simple design of the Beats Studio Buds appears to be similar to what we're expecting to see from the second-generation AirPods Pro. Rumors suggest that the next ‌AirPods Pro‌ will have a rounded, compact design that's also stemless.


There is no word on when the Beats Studio Buds might be released, but given that images are popping up in the current betas, we could see a debut shortly after the launch of iOS 14.6.

Ugh for us who would love AirPods Pro but can’t have them because like every AirPod before them they fall right out of ours ears so need a hook like the PowerBeats Pro.. desperately waiting for that product to be updated and now a little nervous that these other no hook beats are coming out which means the hook style may not be updated for even longer.
