AirPods with cameras may debut in future

According to Ming-Chi Kuo report, Apple is expected to kick start the mass production of AirPods with cameras by 2026. The cameras equipped on the AirPods will likely work similarly to the IR cameras of iPhone Face ID and may retain similar specifications to capture moments with great quality. Apple is also planning to integrate the Airpods with cameras to current and future Apple VisionPro headsets to experience spatial audio. Kuo said, “This new AirPods is expected to be used with Vision Pro and Apple's future headset devices to enhance the user experience of spatial audio and strengthen the spatial computing ecosystem.”

The new AirPods are also expected to support air gesture functionality due to easy detection of environmental changes with the help of an IR camera. Therefore, Apple has bigger plans for its future generation of AirPods, which not only plans to improve the audio experience but is also building a whole new computing system with Vision Pro. Kuo also revealed that  Foxconn will be the new product introduction (NPI) supplier for IR cameras to be installed in AirPods. Reportedly, it has the capability to develop 18-20 million units which will allow Apple to develop over 10 million AirPods. However, the production and orders will be entirely based on market demand once the device is launched in the market.
