Now that reports are circulating that Apple will hold an event on March 23, speculation about the devices that could be unveiled is rife. AirPods 3 is one of Apple’s items to release on that day, and a new report from GizmoChina has posted render photos of the third generation Apple AirPods.
According to reports, Apple will use a nearly identical design for the AirPods 3 and AirPods Pro, complete with silicone ear tips. However, we’re beginning to assume that, like the AirPods 1 and 2, the AirPods 3 would have an open ear configuration with no rubber ear tips at the end.

It’s also likely that the next-generation AirPods would have Active Noise Cancellation support (ANC). In that case, Apple would need to have something significant to sell with the next-generation AirPods Pro to justify the “Pro” moniker and higher price tag.
If recent rumors are to be believed, Apple will also announce the second-generation AirPods Pro in addition to the AirPods 3.
