AirPods are considered to be the most popular headphones in the world, beloved for their effortless setup, iconic design and incredible sound quality.

Prolific Apple leaker reposted a photo of a tweet from Dinesh Dave talking about the AirPods Max being the last product he signed about 4 years ago. Ryan further went on to say that the company saw the rapid increase in demand of the original AirPods immediately after its launch in 2016 and had started the design for the latest model that is finally out for pre-order.
