Chinese analyst Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities, who has certain connections among manufacturers and a part-time owner of the title of "the most accurate analyst of Apple's activities in the world" made another "prediction"
What is it this time
Hand on the crystal ball, Ming-Chi said that Apple will release an updated version of the wireless headphones AirPods in the second half of 2018. The ears will be assembled, as before - by the Taiwanese manufacturer Inventec, and separate companies will be engaged in such companies as Unitech, Compeq, TXC and HLJ. In addition, the Yabloko team is preparing for release a new charging case with support for the AirPower wireless charging station. As for the specifics, for example, technical characteristics - there is here, oddly enough, no details.
The accuracy of Ming-Chi's analytics (and not only of him) is largely due to the scarcity of additional information. So for sure his words should not be taken, but it should be noted that in his work, this person is considered one of the best.
