The Beats Studio Buds+ is a new version of the Beats Studio Buds developed by Apple. Signs of the Beats Studio Buds+ were spotted in the iOS 16.4 release candidate made available today by 9to5Mac.
The Beats Studio Buds+ have a design almost identical to the Beats Studio Buds, first released in 2021. According to 9to5Mac, the earbuds will be upgraded to either an H1 or W1 chip in the near future; however, the Beats Studio Buds will continue to contain a Beats chip rather than the H1 or W1 chip.

Apple has plans to increase the Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency of the Beats Studio Buds+, which still need to be released to the general market and still have some time to go until they do so.
The first generation of Beats Studio Buds was released in 2021 to serve as a more affordable alternative to Apple’s AirPods. The Beats Studio Buds retail for $150, and the next model will feature a price tag that’s comparable to this one.
