First Images Of Apple AirPods 3 Leaked

Apple AirPods 3

The rumours about the new Apple AirPods 3 are intensifying after the first pictures of the wireless headphones are said to have appeared on the network. On renderings, the in-ears expected in spring 2021 can be seen as possibly slimmed-down AirPods Pro.

The American manufacturer is known for moving the technology and design of its often price-intensive high-end products into a mid-range segment that is cheap by Apple standards. The AirPods 3 could fare similarly, which will be presented in the next few months based on the current AirPods Pro. Leaks from 52audio show the first pictures of the “new” wireless headphones in advance of a possible presentation in spring, and they hardly hold any surprises.

Slowly but surely: Without ANC to the in-ear portfolio

According to the insiders, the AirPods 3 and AirPods Pro are like one egg to the next. In this case, visual differences can only be seen in the charging case of the headphones, which is supposed to be more compact this year. Technically, the difference between the third generation of classic AirPods and the Pro version could only be that the former do not use active noise cancellation (ANC for short). In terms of the name, the introduction of the “AirPods Pro Lite” would also be conceivable.

The change from an open design to a full in-ear lineup shouldn’t please every AirPods fan. So the chances are good that Apple will continue to offer the second generation of its wireless headphones. The price should also play a major role here. After all, the AirPods 2 are currently available for around 120 euros, while the new AirPods 3 or AirPods Pro Lite will most likely exceed the 200 euros mark. Since Apple does not comment on rumours in advance, they should be enjoyed with caution until the presentation.
