🥇 Regular Picks

HostPickScore
Myke Regular "AirPods to gain more controls via touch actions" 1
Stephen Regular "At least 1 more color option comes to AirPods" 0
Federico Regular "The AirPods line is split in two, and the lower end version gets a price drop" 0
  • The additional condition is an intentionally risky choice by Federico
  • Ultimately this is in fact his undoing, AirPods never officially get cut from their original $159 price.
Myke Regular "The next HomePod is a mini HomePod" 0
  • True, but too late. The HomePod mini wasn't released until 2020.
Stephen Regular "HomePod price drop" 1
  • In April, they were cut from $349 to $299.
Federico Regular "Shortcuts will gain new HomePod/AirPlay 2 actions to play audio on HomePod more quickly" 1
Myke Regular "Apple will create some new noise-cancelling technology" 1
  • Some sort of thing that they put into an AirPod or something that they tout as invented by Apple, is how it was clarified during predictions.
  • Myke, in absentia, gets the benefit of the doubt as to how new the AirPods Pro tech is.
Stephen Regular "Better incorporation of Apple News into the audio ecosystem" 0
  • For example, asking Siri for the news on a HomePod
  • This did eventually happen, but in 2020.
Federico Regular "HeadPods will be wireless only and they will have no headphone jack and will charge via Lightning or USB-C" 0
