If you hold the breath for an early version of 2019 for Apple's AirPods 2, you might be disappointing. If well-known leaker onLeaks latest tweet is something to do.  Quotes on an "unconfirmed but seemingly reliable source" he claims that "brand new AirPods + new color (s) [are] are likely to be presented in the fall".
You can see the original tweet below:

If the rumor proves to be true, the AirPods 2 release date may coincide with the iPhone 11's anticipated launch date in early September.
This, of course, opposes earlier rumors of an early release date for 2019 for the second gene ear bid, which is described in a recently published report by Digitimes .
Rumor has it
OnLeaks also claims that a wireless charging bag for AirPods could come to consumers first and will be shipped with the original genuine wireless ear samples.
However, it backs up a report from My Smart Price that claims we can get some new color options with AirPods 2 and say that Apple will offer AirPods 2 in "two colors: Black and White".  The report from My Smart Price also claimed that the much-anticipated AirPower wireless charging mat would finally be released in the next few months, along with a "first-generation AirPods" wireless charging case.
The source of My Smart Price report says Apple is working on some "exclusive features" for AirPower, but they won't be available until iOS 13 is released. They also claim that the AirPower wireless charging pad is likely to be priced around $ 150 (£ 115 / AU $ 210) at launch. "
As with all rumors, we cannot be 100% sure if it is true, and with no firm indication from Apple, we can only speculate on a release date for Apple AirPods 2.
