Apple rumored to announce new AirPods and Apple Music HiFi on May 18
Apple is planning to launch its long-rumored third-generation AirPods and new Apple Music HiFi service next week on Tuesday, May 18, according to a questionable claim from YouTuber Luke Miani, noted by AppleTrack.
Miani suggests Apple will announce the new AirPods 3 and “Apple Music HiFi” service in press releases on Tuesday, without providing any further information or clarification on how he claims to have this knowledge.
The news comes following a long string of leaks and reports surrounding Apple’s new AirPods. It is understood that the new earbuds will have a similar design to the AirPods Pro, featuring the same Apple H1 chip found in the current-generation AirPods, lacking the noise cancellation or transparency modes.
This month, Hits Daily Double record label sources claimed Apple was reportedly preparing to launch its rumored third-generation AirPods and a new “Apple Music HiFi” tier in the “coming weeks,” claiming the new high-fidelity audio streaming tier will be priced at $9.99 per month – the same as the standard Apple Music subscription – offering higher-quality, lossless audio playback.
We suggest taking this with a pinch of salt given Miani’s lack of a track record. However, with the volume of leaks earlier in the year and reports claiming new AirPods were on the horizon, this may be worth keeping an eye on.
