Apple is set to make two announcements on May 18. This will be a press release announcing the launch of AirPods 3, and the new Apple Music HiFi release. This leak is from YouTuber Luke Miani who shares it with the AppleTrack website. As with all Apple events, there is no guarantee of this.
The press release released by AirPods 3 could include the launch of Apple Music HiFi, according to the leak. Apple has announced AirPods Pro with a press release so the same may happen with AirPods 3. But rumors surrounding AirPods 3 indicate that Apple will not be launching it anytime soon. Apple was expected to launch the AirPods 3 this spring but notable sources have denied it. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said the AirPods 3 will not enter mass production until the third quarter of the year. This suggests they will not be silent for the next few months and may come alongside new iPhones.
In terms of leaks so far, the Apple AirPods 3 is expected to come with a shorter trunk than the AirPods 2 and looks exactly like the AirPods Pro. AirPods 3 is also rumored to include Spatial Audio which we have encountered on AirPods Max and AirPods Pro but may bypass audio cancellation. AirPods 3 is priced at $ 150 (₹ 10,876 approx).
As for Apple Music HiFi streaming, indications for this are found in the developer beta for iOS 14.6. Apple could soon bring HiFi support to the Apple Music app, and the idea of this is that the company could bring higher audio streaming to Apple Music subscribers and compatible device owners, such as selecting AirPods.
