The second generation of the classic Apple AirPods has been with us for a while and has become an integral part of the cityscape. Now there are new indications of a successor that should appear this year.
We can expect new iPhones this year. New MacBooks are also becoming more and more likely. Another mainstay of Apple’s business model is the Apple AirPods. A more comprehensive report from Nikkei Asia now shows that these will also receive an early update. The production of the AirPods 3 should start as early as August 2021.
AirPods 3: Release In 2021?
There have already been some rumors about the successor to the hugely successful headphone model from Apple. So it was always said that the AirPods 3 are already in the starting blocks. But last but not least, the pandemic is declared to have postponed the release of the headphones further and further. If nothing gets in the way of production this time, we can assume that we will enjoy the latest generation of AirPods in 2021. To what extent a new Pro model will also make it onto the assembly lines is probably uncertain.
New iPhones, New MacBooks
Production of the latest iPhone generation and the new MacBook Pro models are also expected to start in the same month. To this end, some rumors have been summarized again: This is how all future iPhone models should come with 5G support – including the upcoming iPhone SE 2022. It should look like the iPhone SE 2020 (here’s the test) and be equipped with a conventional LCD. While the second-generation iPhone SE has been a complete success for Apple so far, the iPhone 12 mini is the same unsure. So it should have been decided that the upcoming iPhone 13 mini should be the last of its kind. It will then be replaced by a Max model in the next year. You would then have two 6.1-inch iPhones and two 6.7-inch iPhones in the lineup and thus appeal to a broader range of users interested in a cheaper iPhone Max version.
