What can Apple do with AirPods 3rd Gen?

by birtanpublished on April 12, 2021

Whoa new air pods apparently are dropping next month that seems rather fast why didn't we get more of a heads-up well this is as good as a heads-up as we're gonna get but in today's video I thought I would dive into what could generation 3 air pods be so this is not a follow-up to ear pods Pro this is not air pods you know Sport Edition or anything like that this is just supposedly a follow-up generation to air pods – so anyway we got to talk about it let's begin so the timeline with air pod launches are very diffi and kind of unpredictable because initially they were launched in 2016 with the

IPhone 7 for 160 bucks you know one color one size that was it and they did nothing with it until 2019 so a full three years of just selling air pods full price never changed anything about them until March of 2019 which honestly was not that long ago when they decided hey let's put in you know Qi charging and we'll update the CPU inside and they did that by adding the h1 chip which improved the talktime on these things and it really didn't do much to be honest like it improved latency a little bit and improved the pair time and the time it takes to switch between devices

But for the most part h1 chip was pretty minor update so we had that March and then of course in October we had ear pods Pro where we got active noise cancellation and the redesign obviously you know a noticeable upgrade very very different from before we had sound quality improvements you know we had the force sensor instead of you know tapping the air pods and that's pretty much how Apple's left it since then but now we have some leakers with decent track records especially when it comes to you know predicting things a couple of weeks before they came out we

Have people like John Prosser and love to dream both saying that air pods are gonna be dropping with the new MacBook Pro next month so what are the differences with these air pods no one can really give us a good answer because all they're really saying is well air pods are coming of some kind they don't want to talk about the features or the differences or the changes but the only information we got is from love to dream which is saying when someone asked are the new air pods gonna be like you know Gen 3 are they gonna be another version of air pods Pro he said they're gonna be

Like the iPhone se which if you guys know something can you just tell us I hate all this vagueness but either way if I had to get what he means by that is that hopefully it's a traditional design with a lower starting price which I think everybody would appreciate so my personal guess and for those of you who think this channel is only talking about news I mean most of what I talk about on this channel is taking the news and then giving you my opinions on it so if you're confused as to why I'm talking about something that's just opinion

Based that that's the whole stick of this channel I'm sorry if you thought this was just you know updating you guys on what's going on but my personal prediction is that earpods Gen 3 will drop next month and they will basically look just like this the only difference will be probably some type of updated CPU and a different starting price my hope my real big hope is that they ditch the air pods that don't come with a wireless charge case and just making a standard feature now so anybody who buys their pods Gen 3 will have wireless charging in this new h2 chip that they

Might put in here could improve you know battery life maybe talk time and latency and that kind of thing but the sound quality is gonna be the same it would be really really cool if they lowered the starting price as a whole because ear pods for the most part you know fundamentally haven't changed very much since 2016 and if Apple's found a way to manufacture these things better or maybe they're collecting such a high profit margin off of air pods Pro they just decide to lower their starting price because they're getting undercut by a lot of competitors right now between

Galaxy buds ray cons and you know thousands of other wireless earbuds that have blossomed from this market if they wanted to be more competitive and make sure air pod stays in the lead making you know updated air pods with decent battery life and minor improvements here and there but they start at like $130 instead of 160 and they come with wireless charging by default and everything I think they would be a huge home run but it would definitely kind of destroy the meme though of the like I'm rich boy flex my ear pods on you that kind of ruins it if you're like hey

These air pods are more affordable and now everyone who has their pods it's gonna feel a lot more broke but yeah let me fully preface this by saying that's my prediction there are no leaks or analysts claiming anything I just said they're just saying air pods of some kind coming next month and yeah these are totally separate by the way from the over-ear so don't think that just because new air pods are coming out next month that means that the Apple over years which have been rumor for a long long time are dropping in May those apparently are still not going to

Be unveiled until Worldwide Developers Conference and John Prosser also said there's air pods X coming which is separate from this as well I had to reach out to him just to clarify I'm like are the ones coming out next month different from the sport ones so I don't know I mean Apple makes a lot from wearables I guess so maybe they want to differentiate and complicate this lineup more and more and more but yeah if the leakers and analysts end up being right which I'll leave the choice to believe them up to you guys it means we're getting new air pods next month and then

We're getting over ears in June and then potentially when the new iPhones drop or at some point near the end of the year they're gonna drop up sporty you know powerbeats kind of looking version of air pods that will be specifically targeted at you know using when you work out or play games three different kinds of air pods launches I mean some people are even saying an air pods Pro refresh is happening at the end of this year and I'm sorry between all of these different leaks I just have to believe someone's wrong there's too many leaks in too many bits of information for me to think that

Every single one of these claims is gonna end up being true and Apple's gonna release like four different types of air pods and headwear within like the next eight months like within eight months they're gonna drop all of this stuff I don't know something's off something's gonna be a little bit wrong but like I said where it will sell well so maybe that's why Apple's giving so much attention to it this year and some are claiming that Apple's gonna try to like take over the Beats brand and slowly kill it off and just adopt the technology they got from beats and the

Brand recognition and then just incorporate it into standard Apple headphones so maybe this is part of that process and we're just you know seeing the very very beginning of it but to finally go back to air pods three I don't think there's gonna be a big design change you know if there was some type of redesign coming with this version I feel like we would have known about it by now because if they're launching it next month they've got to have it you know almost ready or in production by now and if it was in production by now then we would know

About some type of design tweaks you know I saw some people saying they wanted a on see on these air pods but it really doesn't make sense because these things are designed to let all sound from around you get in regardless so trying to add ANSI – these would not work very well especially because ear pods Pro that's like their target advantage like that's the main reason you would buy those so they wouldn't take that away from it and some people were making concepts of these air pods but with a shorter stem which again I feel like we would have seen photos or

Leaked images of it by now I even saw some people say that they might bring that like force sensor that we got on the air pods Pro and bring it to these I mean I guess they could if they believed that the force sensor is better than the tap but in my opinion if the new air pods are supposed to be like the iPhone se that means you know updated internals with traditional design at a decent competitive starting price so that's why my personal prediction is wireless charging for the case will become a standard the CPU will get a boost with an h2 chip which maybe they're gonna

Incorporate into the over ear headphones I don't know but slightly better battery life no changes to sound quality and a lower starting price of like a hundred and thirty bucks that's my guess so please don't take my word for it because I have a horrible track record I get things right about two percent of the time so if this is one of those times that'll be really hilarious but what do you guys think is gonna happen feel free to hit me up over on Twitter join my discord and we can speculate endlessly more over there this is your Apple shape here and I don't want to have a third

Pair of air pods so I'm gonna have to do something with these I'll see you in the next one
