Last month, Apple launches the second generation of Apple AirPods. which comes with the “Hey Siri” feature. This is the first AirPods which feature the wireless charging technology. A few hours back Digitimes says that Apple could be working on the “AirPods 3”. The next moment, we receive information from Ming-Chi Kuo stating that Apple indeed is working on the AirPods 3 which is set to launch within Q4 of 2019 and Q1 of 2020. We can expect Apple to launch two new models of AirPods at the same time.
According to them, the first model will be the update to the existing AirPods. However, the other model will be in a new form factor and could possibly be at a higher price. This means the same external design model will be kept at the current second-generation AirPods price.
The features wise it is still not clear yet. But there is a report which states Apple might be working on the noise cancellation feature. Other than that, there is also a rumor which states Apple might design the AirPods 3 to have water resistance improvement. Maybe we can expect Apple will include these features for the third-generation AirPods.
In conclusion, Apple could be thinking of reducing the first-generation and second-generation AirPods price so that it will be more affordable for users to purchase it. One of the tech analysts expects Apple’s AirPods shipment could go up to 52 million in 2019 itself and increase further up to 75 million by 2020.
