Apple’s AirPods, while ridiculed at first, have gained quite the popularity. It is basically, what Apple does. They create a need for the final customer by integrating a product into their ecosystem and then it becomes quite an attractive choice. The first AirPods, as mentioned before, wasn’t quite welcomed but today we see many people using them in their daily lives. There are issues with the AirPods though. This time around, this would be the third iteration of the device. According to a tweet on 9to5Mac and a corresponding article, we get a first look at what the AirPods Gen 3 may look like.

We get the original image from 52audio and they say that this is a part from the AirPods 3 and not the AirPods Pro. Right off the bat, we can see a similar design to the AirPods Pro. The face plate, if you would, looks quite similar to that of the AirPods Pro.
We now go back to the Bloomberg report we saw earlier about this. The report claimed that Apple would be bringing a new design to the base models of the AirPods. These would be similar to the AirPods Pro, with a shorter stem and replaceable ear tips. While we do not know the exact specs or their approach altogether, they claim to be working on improving the battery life as well.
In the tweet though, it seems, people are not happy with this change. A lot of people prefer the current design of the AirPods and complain that the Pro versions do not sit well in the ear. Either way, one thing is for sure though. These are set for a launch in the coming year and not this so we have time to speculate more on the topic.
