  • Apple’s iOS 17.4 has revealed that Beats Solo 4 headphones are on the way.
  • The new headphones will be available in Black, Blue, and Pink and will support Spatial Audio.

Apple hasn’t offered a new pair of Beats Solo headphones since 2016, but that might be changing in 2024.

A MacRumors contributor discovered references to Beats Solo 4 headphones along with images of the product in the latest version of iOS 17.4.

The images show a pair of headphones that appear similar to the Beats Solo 3. The code and pictures suggest that the device will be available in Black, Blue, and Pink. It also looks like the Beats Solo 4 will offer support for Spatial Audio.

There’s no word on other features just yet, but one of our biggest annoyances with the Solo 3 Wireless was the microUSB port. But it seems like a no-brainer for Apple to offer USB-C charging instead. 

We’re not sure about a release date or pricing, either. But the fact that these images and code references are in iOS 17.4 suggests a launch can’t be far away.
