Second AirPods 3 leak says they might not debut at March event
What you need to know
- Another report says there might not be any AirPods 3 coming from Apple anytime soon.
- L0vetodream has echoed a previous suggestion from Ming-Chi Kuo.
- We were expecting AirPods 3 to debut at an Apple event later this month.
A new report says AirPods 3 might not make it to an Apple event in March, the second such suggestion in as many days.
Anonymous Apple leaker l0vetodream, known on Twitter for their mysterious yet highly accurate predictions of the Cupertino company, took to Weibo Tuesday stating "No AirPods in my dream, no AirPods". Whilst there isn't much context to the post, it follows a suggestion just yesterday from Apple supply chain analyst Ming-Chi Kuo stating that AirPods 3 would go into mass production in Q3 of 2021, leading many to speculate the new buds might not debut at an expected March event next week.
Apple is purported to be holding an event on March 23, with invites expected to go out within hours if that is indeed the case. From a report earlier this month:
The l0vetodream prediction from Tuesday was first noted by DuanRui on Twitter, who later deleted stating the original author (l0vetodream) did not want to be mentioned:
