Apple fans hotly anticipate the upcoming AirPods Pro 3, eager for any information about the premium wireless earphones. For enthusiasts, the AirPods Pro 3 release date is particularly exciting.

In addition to news about the professional AirPods, we also provide guides for the standard AirPods 4th Gen earbuds and the expensive AirPods Max 2. For everything we know about the upcoming AirPods Pro 3, read on.

AirPods Pro 3 Release Date Estimate

Apple has not yet confirmed the release date for the AirPods Pro 3. However, experts speculate that the next version of the Pro earbuds will debut in 2025.

While the AirPods 4 are expected to release later this year with two models, the AirPods Pro 3 likely won't launch until the following year. Given the success of the AirPods Pro 2, Apple has every reason to release a third iteration of these popular devices.

AirPods Pro 3 Specs

The AirPods Pro 3 earphones are expected to offer basic upgrades over the previous generation. Although they will maintain the current price, the AirPods Pro 3 will represent a clear step up in quality, even if they may lack any must-have features.

With the AirPods 4 set to include Active Noise Cancellation from previous Pro models, Apple is reportedly developing other features to attract users to the new Pro version. Leaks suggest Apple is working on improved Adaptive Audio, which will automatically adjust your music's volume based on your surroundings.

AirPods Pro 3 Price

Apple’s long-standing price point for the AirPods Pro isn’t expected to change with the AirPods Pro 3. While Apple has yet to confirm the price of the new AirPods Pro earphones, they will likely launch at the same $249 price as the previous generations.

With Apple’s device prices remaining largely unchanged over the past four years, it's reasonable to expect the next version of the AirPods Pro to launch at the same price as the first and second generations. However, since the prices for the new generation of iPhones have not been revealed, there's a possibility that the AirPods Pro 3 could cost a bit more.

AirPods Pro 3 Features

As of publication, Apple has not revealed any AirPods Pro 3 features. Instead, here are features we hope to see in the new AirPods Pro 3:

  • Improved Microphone Quality: The microphone quality of all AirPods, even the AirPods Max, has been lacking. Apple needs to enhance the microphone quality for the AirPods Pro 3 to avoid more meetings with team members sounding like they’re in a tunnel.
  • USB-C Case Support: The AirPods Pro 2 cases still use Lightning Port connectivity. Apple should upgrade to USB-C connectivity for the AirPods Pro 3 cases to align with the company’s other devices.
  • Better Build Quality: Although the current AirPods Pro 2 models are not extremely fragile, they are more delicate than their Pro moniker suggests. Apple should improve the build quality for the Pro 3 model.
  • Longer Battery Life: The AirPods Pro 2 model lasts about six hours with noise cancelling on a single charge. Apple needs to significantly improve the battery life for the AirPods Pro 3 to accommodate longer music sessions and podcast enthusiasts.

That's all there is to know about Apple's next top-of-the-range earphones ahead of the AirPods Pro 3 release date. We will update this guide as soon as more information is revealed, so check back soon.
