Apple AirPods 3: Price, release date, features, and more

The AirPods 3 rumor mill churns out insider details and supposedly leaked information from every corner these days. While Apple has yet to officially announce its third-generation AirPods, trusted analysts and reliable leakers are giving us plenty of reasons to believe we’ll be seeing the next iteration of the popular truly wireless earbuds soon.

Apple’s current second-generation AirPods arguably remain the best earbuds on the market thanks to their affordable price (by Apple standards) and great battery life when compared to other buds — including the AirPods Pro. If the ongoing rumors are anything to go by, the AirPods 3 are expected to get a design overhaul and may even feature one of the AirPods Pro and AirPods Max’s best features: active noise cancellation (ANC). The hype is real. 

We’ve scoured the internet to bring you all the reliable rumors and leaks about the AirPods 3. Take a look below at everything we know so far, including the potential release date, price, features and more. For a sneak peek at what the upcoming AirPods may be like, check out the tech giant’s Beats Studio Buds.

Apple AirPods 3 release date

The September 14 Apple event has come and gone, and there was no mention of the Apple AirPods 3 despite Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo stating the next-generation AirPods will be announced during the September 14 event, according to a report via MacRumors. However, this doesn’t mean the new AirPods won’t be announced later this year.

According to a report from DigiTimes, Kuo might have hit the nail on the head. Multiple Apple suppliers have reportedly started shipping components for the next-generation earbuds. What’s more, they’re expected to ship with other anticipated Apple products.

As previously reported, sources speaking to Nikkei Asia claim Apple is expected to start mass production of the next-generation AirPods this August to gear up for a release by the end of 2021. Circuit board component shipments for the tech giant’s new line of products — including the AirPods, iPhone 13 and Apple Watch 7 — have reportedly kicked off.

Release dates for the upcoming iPhone 13 and Apple Watch Series 7 have been announced, all during Apple’s “California Streaming” event. With components for the AirPods also being shipped and production kicking off in August, we could see the next-gen wireless earbuds still be announced around the same time. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman believes the new entry-level AirPods are set to be released around this time, too.
