The AirPods are the most popular in-ear accessory available today and the most copied. Right now there is the possibility that the second-generation AirPods Pro model will arrive at the same time as the AirPods 3 arrives. However, Apple is believed to have some problems fitting the noise cancellation tech into a smaller package which means that the final design for the device might be slightly less ambitious.
AirPods 3 to be unveiled on May 18th?
Hits Daily Double says that Apple is working on its own high-fidelity streaming audio plan that will be announced alongside the release of the third-gen AirPods. Apple might wait until WWDC on June 7th to announce the high-fidelity audio plan. Meanwhile, Miani notes that the AirPods 3 could be already to go and Apple is just awaiting the dissemination of a new press release to announce the release of the device.
