New third-generation AirPods and MacBook Pro are expected in May

The rumor mill is asking us to get ready for the release of new AirPods and MacBook Pro in May. Jon Prosser, tech analyst, announced on Twitter that third generation AirPods and MacBook Pro are ready for launch next month.

Apple might release AirPods and MacBook Pro ahead of its online WWDC June event

Jon Prosser’s latest tweet on the possible release timeframe for the new MacBook Pro is a reinstatement of his previous claim on the device. Earlier this month, he reported that Apple will release an update to the 13-inch MacBook Pro but with a 14-inch display. This will be achieved by reducing bezels to enlarge the screen size, not of the machine’s. In that previous tweet, he had also quoted the release date to be in May, not the June WWDC online event.

A similar claim by renowned tech analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, in March, corroborates Prosser’s leak. Without mentioning a 2020 release date, Kuo reported that Apple will likely replace the 13-inch display with a mini LED 14.1-inch display in the upcoming MacBook Pro. Kuo further reported that Apple will release the new MacBook Pro with a new scissor-switch mechanism based keyboard, like the one in the recently launched MacBoor Air.

Third generation AirPods

The other device release next month would be the next generation AirPods, according to Prosser. These are being referred to as AirPods Lite by some leakers, with another sports-focused AirPods X coming later this year. It is possible that Apple might reduce the price for AirPods further. Apart from that, no much is known on what would Apple add to the new third-generation AirPods. The company would try to make sure that there is a feature gap between AirPods and AirPods Pro.
