LeBron photographed wearing unreleased Beats Studio Buds; FCC confirms the name
Earlier this month we told you about images found in beta versions of iOS 14.6 and tvOS 14.6 that revealed upcoming new TWS earphones from Beats. Called the "Beats Studio Buds," we could see this product introduced during the upcoming virtual WWDC 2021 developer conference kicking off on June 7th at 1 pm EDT (that's 10am PDT). The product will have an oval shaped charging case, and will be offered in Black, White, and Red.

On Monday, an FCC report submitted by Apple proved to be another indication that the Beats Studio Buds are on the way. The documentation included two internal Apple reference numbers (A2512 and A2513), a look at the product's design, and an image of a label for the device's packaging confirms the Beats Studio Buds name.


Even though the Beats Studio Buds have yet to be officially introduced, a picture posted on LeBron James' Instagram account today shows the NBA superstar apparently wearing the unreleased in-ear headphones. With 85.8 million followers of his Instagram account, companies like Apple don't mind giving the rich and famous (like LeBron) their products to display on social media.

James, whose L.A. Lakers are the defending NBA champions, makes $38.4 million a year playing basketball and is believed to earn more than that amount from endorsements. He probably didn't get paid for wearing the Studio Buds, but he did get a free pair before most of the world even knows that the product exists.

If you don't want to wait for the Beats Studio Buds to launch, the AirPods are obviously a possible alternative. Check out the best deals available now for the AirPods.
