The new AirPods 3 has long been under development at Apple. And today, another thing has appeared on the web
In the code of the just-released iOS 13 firmware.2 beta, an icon was found that, most likely, demonstrates how the new AirPods 3 wireless headphones will look. Speaking in more detail, their design will be slightly smaller and shorter, there is an ear part and a rubber tip. By the way, the appearance of the latter could potentially attract new customers who are not fans of the current design of Apple AirPods.
The file name includes a reference to the code nameB298, which is supposedly the internal name that Apple uses for its future AirPods. In addition, the image itself was found in the “Access Settings” folder. This also hints at the emergence of a new feature that will allow the accessory to be used as a hearing aid.
We also note that in early September on the Weban image of the AirPods 3 prototype appeared. At first, no one attached particular importance to this photo, but after the last leak they were tied together. If all of the above turns out to be true, then the new Apple AirPods 3 premium headphones are likely to come with a redesigned charging case that will be noticeably wider, but shorter than the current version. It is unclear whether any internal improvements will be made, but previously there was also information from reputable sources that the new AirPods 3 will receive not only a new design and housing, but also several important functional additions, including noise reduction and water resistance.
At the same time, Apple also worked onexpanding the range so that AirPods can be used away from the connected device. An integrated heart rate monitor is also under investigation. In any case, the novelty will definitely get a new chip and improved battery life.
Earlier this year, consultant Steve Hemmerstoffferannounced that Apple’s new AirPods will be offered in “new colors.” They were not indicated, but for some time there were rumors of a black version.
AirPods 3 Production May Begin This Waymonth, which means that their release may take place at a presentation in late October. If this does not happen, the company may postpone their announcement until March 2020.
The price of AirPods 3 can stop somewhere between 250 and 300 dollars.
