AirPods 3: when will the Apple headphones finally come?

The AirPods 3 were expected to be part of the iPhone event, but surprisingly Apple did not present the headphones. When are they finally coming? A current report gives some hope.

Update from 09/19/2021: After Apple, contrary to expectations, did not announce the AirPods 3 at the iPhone event, the question of the release of the headphones arises again. According to a current report , production should already start , a performance is no longer too far off (source: DigiTimes via MacRumors). If we had to bet: October at another Apple event.

Original article:

Apple insider Ming-Chi Kuo confirms previous reports - Apple will actually present the AirPods 3 at the same time as the iPhone 13 on Tuesday. But he cannot definitively answer the price question either , two possible approaches are conceivable for him (source: Ming-Chi Kuo via MacRumors).

Despite AirPods 3: Apple does not want to discontinue its predecessor

Regardless of which one will arrive, according to Kuo, Apple will still leave the AirPods 2 as a (cheap) option in its portfolio . A tactic that we already know from the iPhone and Apple Watch. Instead of developing a budget model, you simply leave an older version in the program. But which two scenarios are now possible?

Number 1: AirPods 3 will be more expensive than AirPods 2 , AirPods 2 will not be reduced in price. Number 2: The AirPods 3 take over the original price point of the AirPods 2 , the AirPods 2 are reduced in price.

It gets more complicated again, because the Beats Studio Buds from Apple ( in the video ) are also a cheap alternative to the new AirPods 3 and even offer ANC (watch it on Amazon):

No more wired charging case for the new AirPods

What Kuo does not explicitly take up is a rumor of the past few days. As a result, the AirPods 3 will only be available with a wireless charging case , with the AirPods 2 the customer still has the choice. What would therefore also be conceivable for us: The AirPods 2 with a wired charging case will remain in the portfolio and will be slightly reduced in price, the AirPods 3 cost as much as the AirPods 2 with a wireless charging case, but they'll be out. Whatever happens, we will be able to experience it in the livestream for the Apple event - it starts at 7 p.m. on September 14th.
