If you’ve been eagerly following all of the rumors about the upcoming release of Apple’s AirPods 2, you’ll be excited to hear about the most recent gossip. According to one reporter’s tweet, the new wireless earbuds will charge fully in only 15 minutes.
The tweet is good news, but Apple AirPods don’t take much longer to fully charge. With only 15 minutes of charge time, you’ll get up to three hours of listening time and two hours of talk time. Increasing the functionality for AirPods 2 means Apple will likely have redesigned the case to build in extra charging coils.
The newest version of AirPods is expected to release in late March, but this is also a rumor. Experts have also been speculating that the newest Airpods will have a different finish, perhaps similar to the finish of the Apple Pencil. The Apple Pencil has a matte finish, which might make the AirPods 2 even more comfortable than its predecessor.
Although an extension to 15-minute full charging doesn’t seem unreasonable, considering the first version of the AirPods could fully charge in under 30 minutes. However, the reporter who revealed the information has been inaccurate about his leaks in the past.
