KGI announces a new version of AirPods in mid-2018

Although a few hours ago we reported that shipments of AirPods, at least from the official page of Apple, will have to wait until the second week of January 2018, this can also be seen as good news. According to a report published in KGI by the reliable analyst of Apple, Ming-Chi Kuo, it is likely that those of Cupertino launch a new major update in the middle of next year.
In the September keynote , Apple announced a new AirPower inductive charging case for next year, for several of its devices, including AirPods. This forced to release a new case, although according to the report of Kuo, there will also be something new for headphones.

New AirPods for 2018 And the production?

In particular, the analyst does not go into detail about exactly what will change in the next-generation model, however, he points out that they will adopt a smaller quartz component.
This report on Apple also addresses one of the most worrisome problems of these devices. In this sense, it refers to the limitations in the supply chain are mainly due to the rigid PCB of the battery. Until this situation is resolved, Kuo withdraws its expectations that Apple will double shipments of AirPods next year to more than 26 million units.
Also, the information published by KGI indicates that in the first quarter of next year, AirPods could overcome the usual fall in sales compared to the seasonality of holidays.
The AirPods, have always been good news to those of Cupertino, but certainly the fact of being able to update the production of the same, at some point will have to pass bill to the technological giant. Will it happen as soon as this report predicts or Apple will be able to resolve it in a timely manner?
