New rumors say AirPods 3 coming at October 18 ‘Unleashed’ Apple event

The rumor: Apple is ready to launch AirPods 3, according to Weibo source PandaIsBald (not yet rated) and analyst Wedbush Securities (71.4% accurate, source).

  • Both sources, which admittedly have mixed track records, believe that Apple will launch third-generation AirPods on Monday at the next Apple event
  • Rumors have swirled for months about the launch of AirPods 3 and have been extensively leaked for months

Our take: While I want these to come so badly next week, I’m still not entirely convinced that they will make an appearance. AirPods and Mac updates at the same time feels off to me, but I think a release is still somewhat plausible.
