YouTuber Luke Miani says his sources have informed him of an upcoming Apple release happening on May 18th. After AppleTrack reached out to him, he confirmed that he was speaking about AirPods 3rd generation.
In addition to the possibility of new AirPods, Miani also believes that the announcement of the AirPods could also include the official announcement of the recently-leaked ‘Apple Music Hi-Fi feature.
Luke Miani thinks that Apple could announce the new AirPods 3rd generation and Apple Music Hi-Fi via press release on the Apple Newsroom website on May 18th. The third generation AirPods have been leaked countless times over the past year, so it is highly likely that the product is almost, if not already, completed.
It’s not unusual for Apple to announce products via press release. For example, in 2019, Apple announced both the AirPods 2nd generation and the AirPods Pro in press releases. Additionally, the AirPods Max were announced via press release in early December of last year.
Of course, as with all leaks/rumours for unannounced products, it’s a good idea to take this rumour with a grain of salt. It might be true, but nothing is ever official until Apple announces it.
What do AirPods 3rd Generation look like?
There have been multiple leaks over the past few months showing the new AirPods. All the leaks show a similar design to the current design of the AirPods Pro, except for a longer stem and non-customisable tips.
Below are several of the images that have leaked over the past few months:
