A LARGE NUMBER OF LIVE IMAGES OF AIRPODS 3 HAVE BEEN LEAKED
After the announcement of the date for the spring presentation of Apple‘s new products (it will tentatively happen on March 23), images of AirPods 3 began to seem on the online – one after another. First renders, then live photos, and now – an outsized number of live photos.
There is not any doubt that the spring presentation of Apple’s new products will do without AirPods 3. the looks of the second-generation AirPods Pro remains in question, but the availability of AirPods 3, consistent with rumors, has already begun.
Rumors attribute better sound quality to the AirPods 3 (at least thanks to a replacement processor), improved autonomy, active noise cancellation and silicone earbuds within the kit. But, at an equivalent time, they presumably won’t have support for aptX Adaptive or LDAC.
AirPods 3 look far more like AirPods Pro than AirPods 2. this will be clearly seen within the comparison image above. Also, the value of AirPods 3 is already estimated – $ 150.
