As per the pictures, the AirPods 3 will be a child born out of the standard AirPods and the Pro version. There will be a smaller stem taken from the Pro model and the universal fit without interchangeable ear tips taken from the standard version.
Other design elements include the speaker components on the outside, larger proximity sensors than the AirPods Pro, and additional sensors on the lower side of the pair, much like on the AirPods Pro. The AirPods 3 is also expected to come with a rectangular wireless charging case, something we have seen with the Pro model.

The AirPods 3 are also expected to come with the same H1 chip seen on the AirPods 2. It is also expected to see improvements in the audio output, battery life, and better playback controls.
However, don’t expect the inclusion of the AirPods Pro’s Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and Transparency mode. As for the price, the AirPods 3 is expected to be priced similarly to the AirPods 2; somewhere around Rs 15,000. All-in-all, the AirPods 3 will come with major design changes and some improvements here and there.
