Bloomberg revealed that Apple plans to launch AirPods 3 and AirPods Pro 2 in 2021. The news pointed out that AirPods 3 will be based on AirPods Pro, but there is no active noise reduction function. In addition, the battery life will be improved compared to AirPods 2. In addition, "Bloomberg" pointed out that Apple intends to further shorten the length of AirPods Pro 2, like its rivals Samsung, Amazon and Google.
According to the source, it is extremely challenging to put the wireless antenna, active noise reduction, and microphone in a smaller shell than AirPods Pro. In addition, Apple also plans to use new wireless chips in AirPods 3 and AirPods 2 next year.
