The new AirPods 3 have been in development at Apple for a long time.And today, another volume has appeared on the Web
In the code of the just-released iOS 13 firmware.2 beta, an icon was discovered that apparently demonstrates what the new wireless headphones AirPods 3 will look like. In more detail, their design will be slightly smaller and shorter, there will be 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 Apple AirPods design.
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 at the beginning of September on the InternetAn image of a prototype of AirPods 3 appeared. At first, no one attached much importance to this photo, but after the latest leak they were linked to each other. If all of the above turns out to be true, then Apple's new premium AirPods 3 will likely come with a redesigned charging case that will be noticeably wider but shorter than the current version. It's unclear whether any internal improvements will be made, but there was also previous information from reputable sources that the new AirPods 3 will not only have a new design and case, but also several important functional additions, including noise cancellation support 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.
