What can we expect from Apple’s California Streaming event?
The tech giant is rumored to be launching its next iPhone lineup. The series will be named iPhone 13 — not iPhone 12s according to the leaks — and will contain four devices: iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max. The smartphones are expected to be powered by the A15 Bionic processor and are expected to feature a smaller notch, upgrade cameras, bigger batteries, 120Hz ProMotion displays, and more.
Along with the iPhone 13 series, Apple is also tipped to announce the Apple Watch Series 7. The next-gen smartwatch from Apple will reportedly feature a ‘dramatic redesign’ with a flat-edge display and new screen sizes. There’ll be no new health sensors this time, but Apple is reportedly utilizing the space for a bigger battery. Apple will likely keep the pricing the same as the Watch Series 6, which means the base variant 40mm GPS only model should start at $399.

AirPods 3: info, specifications, pricing, release date, FAQ, and more
The long-rumored third generation of AirPods finally received their much-awaited release at the Cupertino-based OEM’s Unleashed Event on October 18th. They launch alongside the brand new MacBook Pro lineup and introduce some massive changes to AirPods, which have remained pretty much the same since their introduction in 2016.
Yes, there was a refresh in 2019, which brought an improved processor enhancing its function as a pair of smart wireless earphones and a wireless charging compatible case. An upgrade we can call iterative. The 2nd generation AirPods will still be available on sale for $129.
With that, let us focus on what is new with this generation and answer some of the questions you may have, specifically those surrounding its availability and compatibility with older devices.
Pricing and Availability
The third-generation AirPods will be available for pre-order from 18th October, with deliveries and availability starting next week. The earbuds will retail for $179 and come bundled with an all-new MagSafe compatible case.
The $249 AirPods Pro have also been updated to ship with the new MagSafe Case.
As has been customary for AirPods, the earbuds are only available in the traditional white. With Apple making more and more of their products available in a plethora of colorways, we would’ve liked to see more variety, but for interested buyers, white it is.
According to Apple, the third generation features an all-new design on the inside and outside. It uses a stem shape similar to AirPods Pro and has shifted to the same embedded force sensors for media control, while the head of the earbuds remains similar to previous generations with a hard plastic casing, without any silicone tips.
The charging case has also seen a minor redesign to fit the new earbuds and features a familiar look. It also comes with MagSafe-capable hardware.
For those who often exercise with earphones, AirPods are IPX4 rated, meaning the sweat you work up, or light rainfall should not pose an issue.
Audio and Microphone
Coming to the audio experience on these new earbuds, Apple spoke about a new low distortion driver which will provide powerful bass and crisp audio at higher frequencies. This is further supported by Adaptive EQ, which will actively customize the audio profile to help you hear a song, how it’s meant to be heard by trying to combat inconsistencies due to fit.
Spatial Audio with Dynamic Head Tracking will also make its debut on the normal AirPods with this generation, meaning you will be able to make the most of Dolby Atmos soundtracks.
And focussing on microphones, Apple is once again using its dual beamforming units, which have proven themselves to be the best on the market over the last few years. Bundle this with iOS 15’s Voice Isolation feature, and others should never have an issue hearing you well on a call.
Battery Life and Charging
With the third generation, AirPods Apple provides the best endurance they ever have with the in-ear form factor. These earbuds will now last for six hours of listening on a single charge, with the case packing an additional 24 hours, making for a total of 30.
If you’re someone who takes an awful lot of calls, in that situation, the AirPods will function for 4 hours on a single charge, with the case providing an additional 16.
The earbuds charge via the case, which in turn can use the included Lightning to USB-C cable or wireless charging via the Qi or MagSafe standard.
Apple claims a quick five-minute charge will provide users with an hour of listening time or talk time.
The third-generation AirPods are compatible with a wide variety of Apple devices, which are listed below. Keep in mind to use these, you will need to have the devices on the latest version of their respective operating systems.
Note: It is also compatible with the 7th generation iPod Touch.

AirPods 3 could arrive with a water-resistance charging case
Apple’s latest earbuds were announced last Monday during the company’s Unleashed event that also revealed the new, larger, and more potent MacBook Pro laptops. The new AirPods 3 arrived with a new design and several upgrades that include Spatial Audio, IPX4 water resistance, and more. However, it seems that Cupertino forgot to mention one extra upgrade that comes with the new charging case of its latest AirPods, as it seems that the earbuds’ water resistance may also apply to their carrying case.
The new AirPods 3 feature tons of great upgrades from the regular AirPods models that are still available for purchase on Amazon, B&H, and other online stores. These wireless earphones sell for $175, which may be a tough sell, considering that the regular AirPods with a wireless charging case sell for just $160, and the more potent AirPods Pro can be purchased for $197, or less, depending on where you get them from, and the available deals.
Buying a new pair of AirPods 3 for $175 doesn’t seem to be such a compelling deal, even more so after you realize that they don’t feature active noise canceling like the Pro models that can be yours for $22 more. However, this may sound more interesting when you consider that the new AirPods feature a MagSafe charging case that also features the same IPX4 water resistance as the earbuds it carries. This would make this the first charging case to include this feature, as the case of the AirPods Pro isn’t water or sweat resistant.
In other words, your new AirPods 3 and their charging case will be able to withstand splashes of water, but they won’t hold up to water jets or water immersion. These new earbuds also feature a new feature that comes as a skin-detect sensor that allows it to detect when they’re being worn or not, while the more expensive AirPods Pro uses dual optical sensors to detect if they’re in the user’s ears.

- AirPods 2 – $129
- AirPods 3 – $179
- AirPods Pro – $249
- AirPods Max – $549
Along with the introduction of AirPods 3, Apple has also updated its website to give AirPods a separate new section. The Apple.com website now has a separate TV & Home tab and a separate AirPods tab. announced that the new AirPods support MagSafe charging.
