Apple AirPods 3 – release in September 2021
It looks like we shall see a mega-launch of Apple products in September with the iPhone 13, Apple Watch Series 7 and AirPods 3. Almost certainly, the single launch date will be Tuesday 10th September…news cycles are important and that date is the obvious choice to optimise coverage.
What to look out for
- First update since 2019
- These will NOT come pre-bundled with iPhone 13.
- Support for Apple LOSSLESS audio (you’ll need a lossless source of audio and a lossless CODEC to hear improvements in audio quality)
- Sweet but small battery life increases
- Possible removal of Active Noise Cancellation
- Similar design to AirPod 2
- Similar price to AirPod 2
And of course. A new version of AirPods means that version 2 will start to be discounted…enjoy !! I’ll add some discounted prices in below if and when available.
How do we know this is true?
A: There are multiple reports of shipments and production by 3rd party component suppliers.
