The previous models were top-notch and appreciated by every user. The new and upcoming model will be certainly gathering many expectations.
Since a long time there were rumors regarding a cheaper version of Apple AirPods Pro: AirPods Lite. There is a possibility that the AirPods 3 might be the rumored cheaper version. Won’t that be amazing to have a low cost model of the premium quality earphone? This is of course just a rumor, for now, but it is turning heads.
However, there has been a lot speculation regarding the new device by the company on Twitter. Many experts have put out their verdict about the soon-to-be launched Apple AirPods 3.
We have some potential launch dates, price, specifications, features and many more things about the AirPods 3.
Leaks and Rumors regarding the Apple AirPods 3
The first and initial rumor came by a company from South Korea, The Elec. the site claimed that Apple has been testing the new model of AirPods. The testing has reached the final stage. The site also claimed that the final testing would be completed by the end of the year 2020 and we might see the launch of the device in the first half of the 2021.
Next comes a row full of rumors and speculations. The next rumor was a bit specific. A tweet was made by LeaksApplePro on Twitter claiming that the AirPods are all ready for a launch on 21 March 2021. Twitter accounts like these have a huge hand in marketing products for the company. Some of these tweet are even true, that is why, these statements just bring more and more confusion as well as a lot of excitement. Another tweet regarding the announced of the AirPods in 2021 was made by Bloombery back in October 2020.
Another rumors and a more trusted one came from an Apple insider MacRumors, suggesting that the device will be coming out in the market in the first half of the year 2021.
One thing to note from all these leaks and rumors is the focus on just one particular part of the calendar.
So, rumor or no rumor we will be deliberately and over-excitedly waiting from the launch of the device in the early 2021.
AirPods 3 Price
Now that every tiny detail of the device is supposedly based on the leaks and rumors, the price of the device also have many speculations. The South Korean site The Elec claimed that the AirPods 3 is the previously rumored AirPods Lite. The site further claimed that the new device will be 20% cheaper than the AirPods Pro.
The AirPods Pro costs around $249.00. If we consider that the new device will be 20% cheaper than the Pro. Then, the AirPods 3 will cost around $199.00.
Now this is where things get interesting. The leaks claim that the new device will be cheaper and budget friendly. But if we look at the price of the Apple AirPods 2, the previous model is priced at $159.00.
This means that the AirPods 3 might be expensive than the AirPods 2. So then we wonder where is the budget friendly feature?
However these are merely speculations. We are still expecting the company to properly announce the device and hoping that it comes as a budget-friendly device.
Apple AirPods 3 Design
When it comes to apple design is the thing about which we do not have to worry. The company bring all its devices with premium quality and lavish design. We believe, that is one of the main reason why Apple has a huge fan base.
Talking about the design, earlier there were rumors that the Apple AirPods 3 is a revamped version of the Apple AirPods Pro. Hence, the comparison of the two devices again and again.
We are expecting similarity in terms of design, like swappable silicone tips and shorter stalks. The features on the other hand might vary, considering the price of the device.
The Elec twitter about the same aspect. The editor of MacRumors, Joe Rossignol also twitted on his official Twitter account @rsgnl claiming, “Apple announced its second gen AirPods on March 20, 2019, so they are nearly a year old, “AirPods Pro Lite” could end up being the third-gen AirPods (no Pro in name) with same in-ear ensign and sound quality as the AirPods Pro, but no noise cancellation. Just spitballing…”
Further we have heard that the AirPods Pro will have shorter stem and interchangeable ear tips. This would mean that the AirPods 3 would be less visible and lighter than the previous models. Not to forget that this will make the AirPods more comfortable.
These are the few things that we know about the upcoming new AirPods. Although, the company hasn’t revealed anything regarding the launch or the price of the device, we are still expecting the company to comeout as soon as possible. Until then, we have to be updated by all the leaks, rumors and speculations going aoound.
