Airpods3 may be released in the first half of 2021

According to news on August 26, although the Airpods pro launched at the end of last year adopts a new design, the highly similar design of Airpods 1/2 generation has been questioned by many people. The difference between headphones and charging boxes is minimal.

According to foreign media wccftech news, AirPods 3 may have more components while using a more compact design. The details of the revelations mentioned that Airpods3 will use a complex SiP package, which enables the upcoming wireless headphones to adopt a more compact design like AirPods Pro, while also advertised other features. As for more other functions, it is possible that Apple has added noise cancellation and transparency modes to AirPods 3.

According to the previous analysis by Tianfeng International analyst Guo Mingchi, the appearance design of AirPods 3 will be changed to be similar to AirPods Pro. It is expected to be mass-produced in the first half of 2021, so the third-generation headset may not be seen at Apple’s fall conference in 2020.

According to IDC’s statistics, AirPods sold 15 million units in 2017, 28 million units in 2018, and sales in 2019 reached 65 million units, a year-on-year increase of 132%. Although the epidemic will have an adverse impact on the demand for AirPods in the short term, the demand after the epidemic ends will quickly recover. It is expected that AirPods sales in 2020 will reach about 90 million units.
