The long-awaited AirPods 3 could see the light at Apple’s event on October 18 along with the MacBook Pros with MX1 chip. Here’s what we know so far about the company’s new TWS earbuds.
Next Monday, October 18, the Apple event “Unleashed” will take place . As usual, those from Cupertino are silent regarding the products they will present at this meeting, but everything indicates that we will meet the new MacBook Pro with M1X and MagSafe processor .
And it seems that the new professional laptops will not be the only product that we will discover in this Apple Event. Rumors also place the launch of the long-awaited AirPods 3 , whose presentation was expected in mid-2021 , but we are already in the final stretch of the year and they have not yet been released.
The AirPods 3 are the third generation of Apple’s standard True Wireless headphones, and their potential features have been widely leaked over the course of these months.
The design will be the main change that we will see compared to previous models. According to rumors, the AirPods 3 will abandon the appearance of the current AirPods 2 to follow the line of the AirPods Pro .
As you can in the image above these lines, if the leaks are correct, Apple’s new wireless headphones will feature shorter rods.
In addition, they will have silicone ear cushions that not only make them more comfortable to wear, but also improve the isolation of outside noise compared to the design of the original AirPods.
The size of the case will be more compact and square than that of the AirPods Pro, and it will possibly have wireless charging.
On the technical side, the new model is said to feature pressure-sensitive touch input, as well as ventilation and pressure relief for the ears. They may also have greater autonomy.
Previous rumors also claim that the AirPods 3 will support spatial audio, but will not offer active noise cancellation or transparency mode , features that Apple reserves for the AirPods Pro.
Now we can only wait until next Monday to see if we finally know the third generation of AirPods. Will they finally see the light or will those of Cupertino make us wait even longer?
