AirPods 3 tipped to be announced at Apple event this week

The long-expected Apple AirPods 3 are tipped to finally be announced at the upcoming “California Streaming” Apple event on September 14, and they may be priced similarly to the Cupertino company’s current generation of wireless earbuds.

Apple’s third-generation AirPods are expected to be unveiled alongside the hugely anticipated iPhone 13 and Apple Watch 7, and have long been rumored to sport the same design as the AirPods Pro. This means losing the long stem on the current pair of earbuds, along with adopting silicone ear tips. 

According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via MacRumors), there are two scenarios for the AirPods 3’s price point. Either they will be priced more than the AirPods 2, with the current-generation AirPods still being available to purchase; or Apple will reduce the price of the current AirPods and the AirPods 3 will replace them. This means the next-gen earbuds will be priced at $199.

The AirPods 2‘s retail price is set at $149/£159 ($199/£199 with wireless charging case). While this price isn’t the most budget-friendly when compared to other earbuds like the Google Pixel Buds A-Series, Apple’s most affordable option is popular for a good reason.

With the AirPods Pro priced at $249/£249, the next-gen AirPods are expected to be considerably cheaper. It sounds likely that the AirPods 3 will end up costing the same as the second-gen earbuds.
