Apple to announce AirPods 3 at iPhone 13 keynote
Apple intends to announce the new AirPods 3 during the keynote dedicated to iPhone 13. According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the price of this new generation of headphones could have been revised upwards. Still, the line should give AirPods sales a boost.
The AirPods 3 have been expected to stand firm for several months. After a second generation very close to the original version, Apple is expected at the turn. The Cupertino giant must absolutely transform the test by adding new features eagerly awaited by users, such as the noise reduction of AirPods Pro.
Leaks and rumors have already repeatedly prophesied the arrival of AirPods 3 this year. At first, the headphones were expected in april. Then a bundle of leaks announced the presentation of the new AirPods in May. Finally, Apple would have decided to wait for the keynote of September 2021.
AirPods – what are the best alternatives to headphones from Apple?
A higher price than the AirPods 2?
This is also the opinion of Ming-Chi Kuo, the famous analyst specializing in Apple’s plans. In a new note dedicated to investors, the expert ensures that new AirPods will make their entry at the conference dedicated to iPhone 13 and Apple Watch Series 7. AirPods could act as “one more thing”.
According to him, Apple will continue to sell AirPods 2 after the AirPods 3 went on sale. This move could mean that the brand decided to launch the AirPods 3 at a higher price than the previous headphones. As a reminder, AirPods 2 are sold at a price of 229 euros with a wireless charging box. The analyst believes that Apple could also choose to lower the price of AirPods 2 and sell AirPods 3 around 229 euros.
If Ming-Chi Kuo’s information is confirmed, we will know more as of Tuesday, September 14, 2021 at 7 p.m. Paris time. According to the stolen photos that appeared on the web, Apple has finally revised the design of the AirPods with a much shorter and discreet stem inspired by the AirPods Pro. The headphones would opt for an open design again. In addition, Apple would have reduced the size of the wireless charging box. We will tell you more as soon as possible.
