Apple is working on Beats Solo 4 headphones

Apple is working on an updated version of its popular Beats Solo over-ear headphones, according to code located in the iOS 17.4 release candidate that Apple released today. MacRumors contributor Aaron Perris found several mentions of the Beats Solo 4 headphones, including images.


The Beats Solo 4 headphones are similar to the Solo 3 headphones, but have design features that lead them in accordance with Beats Studio Pro. Spatial audio is supported as per the code, but we don't know what other features to expect at this time.

The files contain three colors: black, pink and blue. We can expect some changes that were made to Beats Studio Pro last year, such as improved audio quality and support for personalized spatial audio. The headphones will support the same gestures as the Studio Pro: pressing the “b” button to play/pause and answer calls, double-tapping to skip songs, and long-pressing to activate Siri. Apple will also likely replace the old micro-USB port with a new USB-C port to bring the headphones in line with the rest of their products.

Apple first released the Solo 3 headphones back in 2016, and while there have been a few color updates, nothing has changed since then. The Solo 4 will be the first major update to over-ear headphones in years.
