Apple AirPods 3 will soon arrive. And now, some sources are leaking what could be its possible new features. Release date, spatial audio and more.
Apple is expected to release its most-awaited AirPods 3. Because of this, various rumors and speculations are now releasing some details about this new gadget, including its release date and features.
Previously, sources claimed that the upcoming AirPods 3 should have arrived during the previous Apple April Spring Loaded event, which is also the prediction of recent rumors and speculations. However, there’s sad news since their prediction didn’t happen.
And now, they are claiming that Apple AirPods 3 now has another release date. The launch date is specifically May 19. However, the giant iPhone maker is not the one that released this info.
On the other hand, Luke Miani, a YouTube leaker, is the one that provided the release date and the possible features of the upcoming Apple AirPods 3. Aside from this, he also said that the third-generation earphones will arrive together with the new Apple Music Hi-Fi.
If you want to know more about the upcoming advanced Apple AirPods 3, here are other major details you really need to check. You even be excited about it.
Apple’s Third-Generation AirPods’ Features
According to some sources, the new Apple AirPods 3 will cost around $199. This means that the new advanced wearable device will be 20% cheaper compared to the current AirPods Pro. That’s actually quite the hike up from the $159 AirPods 2, which might disappoint anyone hoping that their direct follow-up would share a similar MSRP.
On the other, some rumors and speculations claimed that the new Apple AirPods 3 could have the same design as the current AirPods Pro. However, there’s a slight difference since its stem is expected to be shorter than the current Apple earphones.
Aside from the slight design change and price, it is also believed that the new Apple wearable device will have spatial audio support. First introduced with the release of iOS 14 on the AirPods Pro and later the AirPods Max headphones, spatial audio uses accelerometers and gyroscopes to give a virtual surround sound effect when watching supported movies and TV shows on an iPhone or iPad.
When it comes to battery, the new Apple wearable device will still have the same power span as the current second-generation AirPods, which is specifically five hours when in full charge. The case would hold an additional charge, just like it does now. In the leaked images, the case looks like it splits the difference between the more square AirPods and rectangular AirPods Pro cases.
Apple hasn’t officially announced any launch event or dates for the new AirPods yet. Although this is the case, many fans and experts claim that the next-gen wearable device will arrive exactly on May 18. Aside from this, they are also expecting that the tech giant manufacturer will announce the new earphones on a press release, which is also the exact thing it did when it unveiled its AirPods Pro and AirPods Max.
