The AirPods Pro 3 truly wireless stereo (TWS) earbuds from Apple are slated to be released in the second half of 2025. The next-generation AirPods are not expected to be released for several months, but information about their characteristics has been leaked. The AirPods Pro 3 is claimed to have a redesigned earbud design, an H3 chip, and improved Active Noise Cancellation (ANC). Apple will also likely include new health functions, such as a temperature sensor, with the AirPods Pro 3.
Apple is expected to improve audio quality
According to Macrumors, the likely characteristics of the AirPods Pro 3 are based on industry trends and the most recent rumours. Apple is expected to improve audio quality while updating the look of the earbuds and case. The earbuds will purportedly have improved ANC capabilities over their predecessor, the AirPods Pro (2nd Generation), and new functions—the AirPods Pro 2 offer lossless audio when combined with Apple's Vision Pro mixed reality headset.
The future AirPods Pro 3 are said to be powered by a new speedier H3 chip. With the AirPods Pro 2 announcement, Apple introduced the H2 chip. The chip is responsible for features like ANC, Hey Siri, quick switching, and adaptive EQ. Furthermore, Apple is developing a hearing test to assist consumers in detecting hearing health issues early. The built-in feature may play tones and sounds to assess hearing ability and provide comments on hearing health. If the AirPods identify a hearing problem, the company may advise users to see a doctor for further assistance. These capabilities could help Apple position the AirPods as a hearing aid substitute.
Apple is reportedly likely to include a temperature sensor in the next Generation of AirPods Pro
Users may track their health in real-time with this function. According to reports, the company has patented AirPods with biometric sensors for monitoring heart rate, temperature, sweat level, and other parameters. The AirPods Pro 3 will be available in September 2025. They could be unveiled at the same time as the iPhone 17 series. During their Wonderlust event in September, Apple introduced a redesigned version of the AirPods Pro (2nd Generation) with USB Type-C. In India, the price is Rs. 24,900.
