The American Tech Giant plans to introduce the next generation of the AirPods Pro series soon. The first and second generations were impressive, from sound quality to offered features; however, the third generation will come with some exciting features.
This article will discuss the company’s upcoming product in detail, its new features, its launch date, and more. So, without waiting any further, let’s get started.
AirPods Pro 3 Expected Features
The H3 Chipset
The previous version of the AirPods Pro features the H2 chipset. It offers Bluetooth 5.3, enhanced audio processing, and improved transparency mode and sound. As the naming convention proceeds, the upcoming chipset will likely be called “H3”.
The H3 chipset can likely bring iterative upgrades to what is currently offered in the AirPods Pro 2. The chipset powered-AirPods Pro 3 can provide more processing power for exclusive health features like temperature measurements.
The Design Changes
According to a famous Apple analyst, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the third-generation AirPods Pro will likely get design improvements. The company has used a similar design pattern for the past two generations, including slight enhancements.
We are unsure how and what the upcoming AirPods will look like. But, considering the significant improvements in several features (specifically health-related), the company will likely change the earbuds and case form factor.
Audio Quality Improvements
As seen in improvements in the second generation compared to the first generation AirPods Pro, we could expect the same with the third generation. The ultimate requirements on an earbud include Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), different modes, Equalizer, etc.
In addition, the upcoming Apple Vision Pro’s integration with audio products also results in audio quality enhancements of the AirPods Pro 3. For now, the USB Type-C-based AirPods second generation can pair with the Vision Pro, but further improvements with the upcoming earbuds are always a welcome feature.
Hearing Ability Improvements
Apple found an exciting way to test hearing efficiency via their AirPods series. The company will take a step forward to make it more efficient with the upcoming product. To test the consumer’s ear, they can play songs or tones via the earbuds, resulting in the user providing the appropriate feedback.
If the AirPods find a hearing problem, the company will suggest the user seek a doctor’s help. For now, the AirPods Pro 2 supports Conversation Boost, which rejects the background noise, improving the speech focus. As per Mark Gurman, the company is also working to improve the person’s hearing ability, which will likely compensate for the hearing aid use.
Body Temperature Monitoring
The body temperature monitoring can work, provided the temperature sensor is present in the AirPods Pro. With the upcoming third-generation AirPods Pro, the company can give the temperature measurement feature, in which the earbuds being in the ear are more precise than the calculations from the wrist or mouth.
The famous Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has said that the company will add some health-related features to their audio products, like monitoring heart rate, temperature measurements, and more.

AirPods Pro 3 Expected Release Window
- Apple hasn’t officially confirmed the launch date for the AirPods Pro 3, but rumors point to September 2025.
The excitement for its launch persists since the AirPods Pro third generation has fascinating features like design overhaul, temperature measurements, audio quality enhancements, hearing health improvements, and more. However, the launch is not happening as soon as it seems.
Rumor has it that the AirPods Pro 3 can come around 2025. The company usually launches its AirPods with the iPhone lineups, but the 2024 launch doesn’t look like it will happen. So, as per leaks, Apple can launch the upcoming AirPods Pro around September 2025.
