Apple Airpods 3(3rd Generation) Review
Apple is expected to launch the 3rd generation AirPods this year but the AirPods Pro 2nd generation will not be launched before 2022. As per reports, the new AirPods Pro will likely come with health tracking features. The AirPods Pro will also feature a new design and enhanced motion sensors to facilitate health tracking features. Apple has not gone official with the plans of launching the AirPods Pro, it is still under wraps. We could see some design changes for the first time since the AirPods came out in 2016. This guide covers everything that we know about the upcoming AirPods 3.
Some leaks have suggested the AirPods will have silicone tips, but others indicate that the earpiece design could be like the AirPods, without a tip. Apple might completely get rid of the stem design and opt for a design similar to the Galaxy Buds. 3rd generation AirPods may be updated with a design that's similar to the AirPods Pro, featuring a shorter stem and a body design that's more similar to the AirPods Pro.
Instead, the AirPods appear to be a hybrid between the AirPods and the AirPods Pro, offering an AirPods Pro look but with a body that fits into the ear without an ear tip. However, some reports say that the stem will be retained in the next AirPods Pro, but it would be shorter than the previous design.
Kuo in his note to investors had suggested that Apple should include some health tracking features to make their TWS earbuds stand out from the crowd. Apple is rumored to be working on a new wireless chip that could be included in the third-generation AirPods, and there could potentially be some improvements in battery life. A new wireless chip could bring extended range, but the AirPods 3 are expected to function like the current version with fast device switching and quick pairing with Apple devices, among other benefits.
Apple Airpod 3 Music
In early May, Hits Daily Double said that Apple is working on introducing both a HiFi music tier and third-generation AirPods "in the coming weeks," and there have indeed been signs of HiFi music in the iOS 14.6 beta.
A rather sketchy rumor from an unverified source has suggested the third-generation AirPods and the HiFi Apple Music tier will launch on May 18 via a press release, but it's not clear if this is accurate information and it should be viewed with skepticism. Apple did, however, recently confirm its work on lossless audio with an Apple Music for Android update.We believe that Siri is the core of AirPods' software and service ecosystem, but since Siri's competitive advantage is not significant, the gap between AirPods' leading edge and its competitors' shrinks due to a lack of protection from the ecosystem as competitors gradually improve their user experience and launch lower-price strategies at the same time. We believe that HomePod and HomePod mini shipments were significantly lower than expected for the same reason,” he had said.
Apple Airpod 3 Feature
AirPods 3 will feature the same pressure-relieving system that's used in the AirPods Pro. The system is meant to equalize pressure within the ear to mitigate discomfort from using the AirPods for a long period of time.
AirPods Pro that is expected to arrive in 2022 could come with an optical heart rate sensor or an advanced biometric sensor to track stuff like temperature, heart rate, perspiration levels and more. The AirPods 3, on the other hand, are expected to arrive this year.
Apple Airpod 3 Price
So, the AirPods 3 aren't getting Active Noise Cancellation, it's likely the pricing will remain as is, with Apple charging $199 (Rs. 14400) for the AirPods with Wireless Charging Case. It's not known if there will be a cheaper version available with a standard charging case that charges over Lightning as Apple could opt to discontinue this option.
