Apple is expected to launch the rumored AirPods 3 later this year to succeed the AirPods 2. Various leaks have already given us hints of the possible features of the AirPods 3. Photo leaks have already started to appear and reveal how they look. I would see the next pair of headphones.
However, this is what we can expect from the Apple AirPods 3 before launch.
Price, features and sound quality
The AirPods 3 are expected to include newer hardware compared to its predecessor and new features as well. Unsurprisingly, the earphones are expected to be priced higher than the AirPods 2, which already cost Rs 14,900 in India.
However, the AirPods 3 cannot go too high in price to avoid competing with the AirPods Pro at Rs 23,876. Expect the price of the new headphones to be between these two numbers.
As for the design of the new earbuds, Apple is expected to keep the stem-shaped earbuds design, but rumors have suggested that the stems could be shorter this time. Replaceable tips, previously only seen on AirPods Pro, are expected to be seen here as well.
Features like ANC (active noise cancellation) are yet to be confirmed. However, the ear tips, which are silicone, should offer better noise isolation than plastic earbuds.
Apple’s AirPods 3 are expected to sound better than the AirPods 2, which were not vastly improved over the first-gen AirPods. While we can’t say more about the sound quality of the AirPods 3 yet, the design of the silicone tips is expected to have a great effect on improving the sound.
The Apple AirPods 3 is expected to feature the same fast-charging settings as the AirPods 2. We still don’t know if we’ll have two options for charging, with a wired charge and a wireless charging-enabled case.
