It was recently reported that Apple’s AirPods are sold out until January 2018. While it may be difficult for you to get your hands on one right now, perhaps you will be able to buy the next-generation of these wireless earphones late next year. According to a new report, Apple is going to launch updated AirPods in late 2018.

The AirPods have proven to be quite popular and as Apple tries to meet up with demand for this product, the well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that the company is going to launch new AirPods late next year.

The analyst predicts that the upgraded AirPods will come with hardware improvements. They’re said to feature smaller components and may even have a higher average selling price.

No further information has been provided about the improvements that might be made to the new AirPods. Either there’s a lack of information on the street at this point in time or the next-generation of Apple’s AirPods won’t come with any major changes.

Kuo does expect the AirPods to perform well in the coming year as well. The shipments are expected to surge 100 percent year-over-year to 28 million units in 2018. Kuo goes so far as to call the AirPods “the most important accessory in Apple’s wireless ecosystem.”
