Apple dominates the world in wireless headphones and AirPods clearly dominate sales. Although Apple held its main conference for this year more than two weeks ago, recent reports have indicated that the company still plans to unveil AirPods 3 in 2021.
According to the sources, the quantitative production process for the new headphones has already started. Therefore, the company may soon unveil it, particularly at its conference to be held at the end of October to unveil the new Mac releases.
It is also still possible that Apple will unveil the AirPods 3 headphones only via a press release, as it had previously done with the second generation of the same headphones, in April 2020.
To that end, new expectations have recently emerged regarding the changes that will appear in the new generation of AirPods headphones. That could include a design change to get closer to the design of AirPods Pro instead of AirPods 2.
On the other hand, the new design may reduce the length of the speakers in general. In addition to an appointment design for the rubber piece that touches the ear. This is as we introduce a smaller charging case, while still supporting wireless charging of course.
Apple offers noticeable improvements with each new generation of headphones. Perhaps the AirPods 3 headphones are no exception, especially since those improvements usually prompt the user to update. The headset is expected to cost $199.
The new generation is also expected to come with ANC support for active noise isolation, although it is this feature that widens the difference between AirPods 2 and AirPods Pro. So far, no one knows if Apple will keep the two production lines or combine the Pro and Standard versions into one headset.
It is worth noting that the AirPods Pro headphones are priced around $250, which makes it difficult to release AirPods 3 headphones at a price of $200 when they come with active noise isolation. Because Apple will render the AirPods Pro useless.
The sources also indicated that Apple will continue to manufacture and sell AirPods 2, but at a price of $159.9, so the AirPods will be available in all price ranges. It’s a strategy Apple is pursuing with iPhone phones as well.
