A New In-Ear Design
We’ve been seeing leaked images purporting to show the AirPods 3 since last November, and combined with information from reliable sources like Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, we have a pretty good picture of what the new AirPods will look like.
Expect shorter stems and a look that has more in common with Apple’s AirPods Pro. This will include a larger in-ear shell for better passive noise isolation and possibly a better fit. Don’t expect to see the Pro’s Active Noise Cancellation features, however.
While some early rumours suggested Apple would also add replaceable ear tips, more recent renders — and a plethora of Chinese counterfeits allegedly based on leaked specs from Apple — have cast some doubt on that.
