Apple may introduce AirPods 3 sooner than you expected

The surprises in the spring for Apple users may not end with the last event. This is because, if the last rumor is confirmed, the AirPods 3 will be presented sooner than expected.

AirPods 3 may be announced on May 18 through a press release

According to YouTuber Luke Miani, the new AirPods 3 can be announced via a press release as early as May 18. And these may not arrive on their own.

The same source also says that this will be the day that the ‘Apple Music HiFi’ will be released. This is the version intended for those who want to listen to music with the highest possible quality in the streaming from Apple music.

It is recalled that the launch of AirPods 3 during WWDC21, in June, is very unlikely. This is the event focused on programmers, and where products such as headsets do not fit properly.

In addition, only the original AirPods were presented at an event. Both AirPods 2 and AirPods Pro were launched through a simple press release. What ends up giving this source more credibility.

The new AirPods 3 are expected to arrive, according to leaks, with a design similar to that of the AirPods Pro. However, they will be below these, as they will not be entitled to functions such as active noise cancellation.

Interestingly, May 18th is also the day when Pixel Buds A, the new Bluetooth headset from Google, will be presented. In any case, we must look at this rumor with a “pinch of salt”.
