Actually, it is not even officially known whether the new “Beats Studio Buds” from Apple actually exist. Now the athlete LeBron James is said to have accidentally posted it on Instagram.
Rumors of new Beats headphones from Apple have been around for a long time. In fact, images of such headphones have already been spotted in the beta versions of iOS 14.6 and tvOS 14.6 and a release of such devices would not be surprising as Apple took over Beats in 2014. So far, however, there have only been a few concrete indications that actually confirmed the existence of the “Beats Studio Buds”. Now the earbuds are said to have appeared for the first time in real life.
Several Apple observers claim to have discovered the headphones in an Instagram post by American basketball player LeBron James. The small earbuds in the athlete’s ears are said to be the not-yet-announced Apple Beats headphones like techradar.com reported.
When will the headphones be presented?
It makes sense that LeBron James, of all people, should be the first to test the new headphones. Because the basketball player is known as a Beats fan and in 2008 already equipped the entire Olympic basketball team in the USA with Beats headphones.
Not much is known about the «Beats Studio Buds». According to the leaks, they should be available in black, white, and red. The case in which the headphones are stored and charged is oval-shaped and similar in size to those of competitors Google and Samsung.
Whether the white headphones in LeBron James’ ears are actually Apple Beats headphones has not yet been confirmed by either James or Apple. However, it is possible that Apple will wait until the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2021, which begins on June 7th, with the official announcement of the new gadgets.
