AirPods 3 in production, likely coming in Q3 2021

The rumor: Apple’s third-generation AirPods are now in mass production, according to DigiTimes (65.1% accurate, via MacRumors).

  • The latest report says that AirPods 3 are currently being mass produced, which always happens close to a product’s launch
