The rumor: Apple is preparing to unveil AirPods 3 alongside new iPhones this Fall, according to Mark Gurman (89.1% accurate, via Power On).
- “Look for Apple to debut its new low-end AirPods this fall, around the same time as the next iPhones” Gurman says
- AirPods 3 have been leaked extensively, but it’s still murky what specific upgrades are coming…aside from a brand-new design
Our take: I think this hybrid in-ear design is truly going to be game changing for AirPods and spark some fresh interest in a brand that Apple updates only every couple of years. This is the third time we’re hearing new AirPods this Fall, so expect them sometime in the September/October timeframe.
