A new leak suggests that Apple will announce the third generation of its AirPods wireless headphones . This information is per the official press statement from Apple’s website.
Without citing sources, YouTuber Luke Miani said in a tweet Thursday that Apple’s third-generation AirPods will debut next Tuesday and that Apple has not prepared a conference for the occasion. As this statement comes from a person who has so far never revealed such an event, this date is, for now, to be taken with large tweezers.
We have been well-known for the design of the next generation of AirPods for several months now. Indeed, it was unveiled by 52audio in February. So it wouldn’t be surprising if Apple is preparing to introduce new pairs of headphones in the coming days.
In a statement to AppleTrack, he added that Apple could launch the headphones simultaneously as a service called “Apple Music HiFi.” It will compete directly with Spotify’s new HiFi subscription, which promises music streaming without loss. The new subscription could also cost 9.99 euros, approximately 1,299KES, which is as much as Apple Music’s current individual plan.
What should we expect on AirPods 3?
The design of the AirPods 3 will not be like the models of the previous generation. According to the leaks, the AirPods 3 will have a smaller rod like the AirPods Pro, but likely. These will not come with the active cancellation of the noise so that the price remains contained.
In addition, removable tips could be used, and touch controls will be available on the earphone rod. The AirPods 3 should also be compatible with the space audio feature currently exclusive to AirPods Pro and AirPods Max.
Pending the release of AirPods 3, Apple has already significantly reduced the production of AirPods 2. The second-gen has been on the sale for just over two years now, and it seems that sales have recently been declining. So it’s time for Apple to renew its Lineup of True Wireless headphones. We will have to expect a few more days before we know whether or not Apple will unveil its AirPods on May 18.
