Rumours surrounding Apple’s AirPods are now coming more frequently than ever before. In the latest one, it is being claimed that the AirPods 2 will have a fast charging functionality that will fully juice up the hearable in just 15 minutes. However, the case of the the earphones could be bigger in one direction and heavier as compared to its predecessor. Further, the AirPods “will probably use Qi charging.”

Tweeted by XDA writer and TV host Max Weinbach, the information reads, “So the Apple news. AirPods wireless charging will happen. It will be VERY fast (0-100 in 15 minutes.) That speed is for the AirPods AND the case. It will probably use Qi charging. There will be a downside though, the case will be bigger in one direction and heavier.” In comparison, the current generation of AirPods are claimed to give three hours of battery life in 15 min of charging.

The news comes a few days after a report claimed that the iPhone-maker could launch the AirPods 2 by March 29. The report detailed that Apple is expected announce a new pair on March 25 in a keynote at an unconfirmed location and follow it up with the official release on March 29. The report also claimed that the outgoing AirPods are reaching the end of their life cycle on March 28. We can’t confirm the claims, hence, it is advised to take this information with a pinch of salt.

As per analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the next generation of AirPods are expected to feature handsfree Siri access, which means Apple’s virtual assistant can be awakened for voice commands without having to press a button on the buds. There’s a chance they'll even come with water resistance. There’s hardly any word on the price and availability of the second-generation AirPods. The outgoing model is selling for Rs 11,999 on Flipkart.
