Since the start of the month, we’ve been hearing rumors of a new Apple event that could happen before the end of October, and speculating on what might be announced after the iPhone 13 lineup is revealed in September.
Fortunately, we received our confirmation earlier this week for an event Apple dubbed “Unleashed” and now a new rumor has started to circulate that Apple may unveil not just one new product at the event, but two. .
While we originally thought this would be where we’d see the new 16-inch MacBook Pro powered by an upgrade Apple M1X chip, according to a rumor spotted on Weibo, it turns out that we could also see the new AirPods 3 there.
With Black Friday 2021 just around the corner, now is the time for Apple to launch its next true flagship wireless headphones.
Analysis: Making the case for AirPods 3
It’s hard to know exactly what Apple is up to behind closed doors in its Cupertino offices, but now is a logical time for Apple to announce the AirPods 3.
It’s been two years since the latest AirPods model launched – the one with the wireless charging case – and since then Apple has enabled spatial audio. Well, sort of. You see, Apple has enabled spatial audio support on the AirPods Pro and AirPods Max, but not the original AirPods.
This reason – combined with the fact that Apple recently sold AirPods at a discounted price and a desire to stay ahead as the world’s largest seller of true wireless headphones – leads us to believe that Apple might be ready to go. deploy AirPods 3.
Of course, we don’t have to wait long to find out: Apple’s October event takes place on October 18 at 10 a.m. PDT and we’ll be here to follow, AirPods 3 or not.
