Quite recently, Apple organized a conference where we got to know not only new iPhones, but also details about new iPads and Apple Watch 7. However, we did not know the details of the new AirPods at that time. Apple has postponed this moment for another conference. It is almost certain that the introduction of the new Apple's earphones will take place at the upcoming event, which was announced several dozen hours ago on the Internet.
The upcoming Apple event will be named "Unleashed" and is scheduled for 18th of October. During the event, we should get to know the details of AirPods 3. We can expect that their design will resemble a bit more AirPods Pro, but still Apple will probably not add active noise reduction to the earphones. Probably during the conference, Apple will also introduce the new MacBook Pro with completely new M1X processors.
