Not too enthusiastic too. But my current AirPods battery is taking a toll, now cannot fully charge to 100%. Hope can still last until next new model while I also use my B&O E8 2.0.

Tiagong they releasing a new version of iPod Touch just because iPhones are expensive so they want to go back to how it was in 2008. If there is a time where Apple misses Jobs direction, it is now.

the event next week is for their new streaming services.. probably don't wanna mix up the message.

plus all these new products are just refreshes (spec bumps). not worth a mention during the event.

Anyone knows if thereís any difference between SG & Japan art?

Japan is approximately 10% cheaper.
Yes, price lo.

Faster connect (useless), longer battery (also useless)
longer battery life, worthwhile

AirPods 2! The case now comes with Wireless Charging!
https://www.apple.com/sg/shop/select-airpods





AirPods users can buy just the AirPods Wireless Charging Case itself too for S$119. Yikes!

magical - wireless, more expensive?

It will cannibalise sales of the AirPods 2 in the regular case since design and spec wise between the two are about the same.

I don't think it's gen 1, the price increased by $1. It should be the second gen AirPods in a non-wireless charging case.
