Could the AirPods Studio — Apple’s highly anticipated over-ear headphones — be revealed soon? An Apple internal memo obtained by MacRumors reveals that the Cupertino-based tech giant is poised to unveil one more product before year’s end.
The leaked memo informed service providers that AppleCare-related changes are in store for Tuesday, Dec. 8 at 5:30 a.m. Pacific Time. This may seem like an innocuous nugget of information, but this decree is more telling than you may think.
Apple memo leak hints at upcoming hardware announcement
MacRumors pointed out an interesting pattern: Before each hardware announcement this year, Apple issued a similar memo to service providers. For example, shortly after announcing its new iPhone 12 line this year, Apple told technicians to prepare for AppleCare-related changes on Oct. 13 at 10 a.m. PT — the exact time when the iPhone 12 event was broadcasted.
On top of that, the Cupertino-based tech giant has had a penchant for hosting events at 5:30 a.m. PT, including the 13-inch MacBook Pro in May, the 16-inch MacBook Pro in Nov. 2019, and AirPods 2 in March 2019. That being said, in MacRumors’ crystal ball, an Apple event could be taking place on Dec. 8 at 5:30 a.m. PT.
