Earlier reports have suggested Apple could offer these AirPods without noise cancellation. By doing this, they will be able to make the wireless earbuds affordable. However, Kuo’s report doesn’t share those sentiments, and it’s hard to believe that Apple would remove such a crucial feature. In fact, we’re hoping the AirPods 3 not only gets noise cancellation, but also comes with new set of features.

AirPods Pro launched in 2019 and apart from some design changes, you got active noise cancellation, improved sound quality, water and dust resistance as well. All these additions bumped up the price of the new wireless earbuds.

Apple AirPods likely to replace EarPods?

Kuo also talked about the fact the Apple iPhone 12 is reportedly going to ship without a pair of bundled earphones. This could Apple’s way of trying to boost the sales of its true wireless headset. However, the move will be an inconvenience to many users who are not fans of the true wireless movement and rely on the wired stock earphones for their music and calling needs.

As per a report by GSMarena Apple may even start bundling the AirPods in certain variants of future iPhones. While not confirmed, this could actually be a good move following the anti-EarPods decision. They are also expected to add over-the-ear headphone as part of the AirPods series, called Studio in the coming month.
