While the branding of the headphones was not mentioned, there is no way Apple would give space to Powerbeats at the WWDC 2020 headlines. It has to be a new type of over-ear AirPods which has also been mentioned in some previous leaks. There have been leaked reports that Apple AirPods X Generation where seen in the retail inventory stories. The AirPods X were priced at $399 with three color variants hinting the possibility of the over-ear AirPods model. It is also rumored that the over-ear AirPods will have active noise cancellation feature which is exclusive to the AirPods Pro devices.
Apple Over-Ear AirPods Release Date at WWDC 2020
Apple was planning to launch all the new products including the iPhone SE 2 at the March event but it has been canceled over the Coronavirus pandemic. The COVID-19 outbreak has delayed or postponed major tech events and Apple also decided to launch several products with a simple website refresh. But WWDC 2020 will happen in June as per the schedule, only it has been changed to an online event and the over-ear AirPods X could be launched in the first week of June 2020.
