Surely the most nostalgic, those who listened to portable music in the 80s and 90s, the guide that Apple is making them interest them a lot. Hence to millennials and younger generations, this may be an unnecessary return to the past.
The truth is that this Monday, February 24, the model of the next Apple headphones, which are called AirPods X, was leaked in a clear allusion to the X generation (1961-1979), children of baby boomers (born between the end of World War II and 1960) and parents of millennials or generation Y (born between 1980 and 1999).
The person in charge was youtuber Jon Prosser:

These new Apple headphones will cost around $ 399 dollars, exceeding the market price of competitors such as the Sony WH-1000XM3 and Bose 700 noise canceling headphones.
In a note, the AppleInsider specialized site spoke with several employees of the brand about the screenshot made by youtuber: “While they could not provide us with any information about the origin of the image, they said the position markers for new products they are common, with price information, but not precise product names, which the manufacturer usually provides before launch. ”
It also works on an iPad mini-LED
Another leak, this time from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo for the UND site, talks about Apple being launching a mini-LED iPad in late 2020 or early 2021.
“Innolux has made a breakthrough with the mini-LED. It is said that he has already had samples approved by Apple and is preparing to make screens for the last iPad Pro tablet that will be launched in the second half of the year, ”said the media.
Innolux has never operated as an Apple provider before. It is understood that the brand has made a great effort to win orders for the Apple mini-LED, investing heavily in research and development.
Traditional LED-backlit displays will range from several dozen to several hundred LEDs. As the name implies, LED mini-screens use miniaturized backlighting and can present more than one thousand full-matrix local dimming zones (FALD), ”the report says.
