Apple would announce the AirPods 3 during the keynote of October 18, 2021, it is confirmed
Apple would finally announce the AirPods 3 during the keynote on October 18, 2021. In addition to the new MacBook Pros, the Silicon Valley giant should surprise with a third generation of wireless headphones.
As was the case last year, Apple’s year-end is punctuated by several successive keynotes. After the presentation of the iPhone 13 and the Apple Watch Series 7, the Cupertino giant has indeed announced a new conference on Monday, October 18, 2021. Called “Unleashed”, the keynote will begin at 7 p.m. Paris time and will be broadcast online.
According to information on the web, this surprise keynote will be dedicated to the new MacBook Pro. Powered by an M1X chip designed by Apple Silicon, these high-end computers would also stand out thanks to a 120 Hz ProMotion mini-LED display, a 1080p webcam, a MagSafe charger and more RAM by default.
Apple is finally preparing to unveil the AirPods 3
According to information from Chinese leaker, PandaIsBald, who is very active on Sina Weibo, the keynote will not be entirely dedicated to the new Macs. Apple would use the conference to lift the veil on AirPods 3, a third generation of wireless headphones. The informant has been particularly reliable in recent months. In particular, he accurately predicted the presentation of the new iPads during the September keynote. We can therefore give some credit to his assertions, especially since the production of AirPods 3 would have started in September.
The latest news is that Apple has completely reworked the design of the AirPods with a much shorter and more discreet stem similar to the AirPods Pro. The American group would also have reduced the size of the accessory charging case. Unsurprisingly, the new AirPods would once again skip the in-ear design, which will remain the prerogative of the Pro editions.
AirPods Pro 2 on the other hand, would be made to wait for several additional months. The Silicon Valley giant wouldn’t announce the headphones until next year. We tell you more as soon as possible about the plans of the giant at the Apple. While waiting for Monday’s keynote, feel free to give your opinion in the comments below.
