Next Monday, October 18, will be the day that Apple makes the second Keynote, in which it will introduce us to some devices.

In principle, and as has been known, this new Keynote will be focused mainly on the new Mac.

However, it has also been known that it is likely that the new AirPods 3 and AirPods Pro 3 will also be presented.

In this note, we are going to review everything that is known up to the time of the event, what will be presented and mainly, everything we know about the new third generation AirPods.

What will we see in this event?

As we mentioned, this new event will be focused mainly on the new Mac and all the improvements it will have.

In fact, the main protagonists are going to be the new generation of MacBook Pro with a new Apple Silicon processor.

As it has been known, it is likely that the processor they carry is the M1X, an improved version of the already known M1.

And this is one more step in the transition to the new architecture that Apple had promised us a few years ago.

There has also been talk of the possible arrival of a new Mac mini, which would also include the aforementioned processor.

It is a fairly small computer, but it would have great raw power.

Another thing that has been rumored is the arrival of a large screen iMac.

We have already seen some models, but according to what has been known, it is possible that a slightly larger version will arrive.

However, these are just rumors, we will have to wait for the event to find out.

Finally, another of the things we expect for this new event is the announcement of the new AirPods 3.

These teams were promised some time ago, and it was believed that they would arrive together with the iPhone 13, but it was not. Therefore, we hope that these new devices arrive at this event.

Next, we are going to tell you a little more about what these AirPods are and everything that is known at the moment about them.

These new headphones of the brand will arrive with a series of novelties that are quite interesting.

Which makes them a very good purchase, whether you are a fan of the brand or not.

These new devices had already been announced for some time, however, the release date was not known. However, as it has been known, Apple is likely to present them in the new event that will occur on October 18.

Therefore, if you find yourself waiting to have them, it is likely that next week we can see them in stores.

We already anticipate that these AirPods will arrive with many improvements over the previous generation.

Next, we are going to talk about the main features that it will bring.

Noticeable improvement in sound

The AirPods 2 already had pretty good sound quality, in fact they are among the best headphones on the market.

They even have better quality than headphones from recognized brands in the music sector. But Apple has wanted to go a step further, and that is that these new AirPods will include silicone tips, similar to those of the AirPods Pro.

With this small change, the sound quality in the standard model is going to increase significantly. And this is thanks to the fact that these silicone tips will ensure that the sound cannot escape, which provides a higher quality.

Transparency mode

This is another of the technologies present in the AirPods Pro that will reach new devices.

In fact, this is one of the characteristics that fans are most grateful for. And it is that, the benefits that this technology offers with many.


One of the rumors that has been circulating the most on the networks is that these devices will have a design quite similar to that of the AirPods Pro. And we wouldn't be surprised, after all, these new AirPods 3 look like a scaled down version of the Pro.

What about bone conduction technology?

Some time ago it was leaked that Apple was working on a new bone conduction technology.

This is a technology that is not new and has been testing in recent years.

The fact that Apple has obtained a patent for this technology means that we will imminently be able to enjoy it in new models. However, these new AirPods 3 are unlikely to include this technology.

In any case, it only remains to be patient and surely that in less time than you think, the AirPods will come with bone conduction technology.

Won't they have noise cancellation?

One of the rumors that has been known regarding these new AirPods is that they probably do not have noise cancellation.

These new AirPods are designed to offer better quality and totally isolate the ear. Even if these rumors were true, they probably wouldn't pose a big problem.

However, again we will have to wait until October 18 to know more exactly what are the main characteristics of these AirPods.

What will be the price of these new AirPods?

We have already talked about when the AirPods 3 come out, now we are going to talk about another issue that greatly concerns consumers and that is the price.

As for the current prices of these devices, we have that the AirPods have a value of $159. For its part, the pro model has a market price of $249.

Therefore, it is expected that these new AirPods 3 have a price of around $200 in its most basic version.

However, these are only assumptions, we will have to wait for the official announcement of these new devices to know the real price.

However, it is important to mention that Apple decided that it would maintain the same prices on the iPhone 13. Therefore, it would not be unreasonable to think that these new AirPods would also maintain the same prices as the previous models.


These new AirPods 3 will be a clear competitor in the market, their characteristics are going to be a very good buy. Therefore, if you are waiting for its launch, without a doubt, it is going to be a pretty smart purchase.
