According to a fresh report, Apple AirPods 3 production has begun, and devices have begun to ship from suppliers to Apple. It goes on to say that Apple's initial production of the rumoured true wireless stereo (TWS) earbuds was minimal, which could explain why we didn't see them alongside the iPhone 13 series at the September 14 California Streaming event. Apple is rumoured to be planning a debut event for the second-generation AirPods Pro and the AirPods 3 next month.

The AirPods 3 TWS earphones have begun production, according to DigiTimes. According to the source, Apple has begun receiving the units that have been built, and these are expected to hit the market soon. The third-generation AirPods are believed to have a new chipset and support Apple Music Lossless Audio. The report also speculates about AirPods' battery life (2nd generation). 

According to the source, Apple has received enough AirPods 3 devices and may release the TWS earphones later this year. It's also possible that these, along with the second generation of AirPods Pro, may be unveiled at an event in October.

New Mac computers powered by the M1X processor are expected to be unveiled during the launch event next month. 

According to previous speculation, Apple could unveil the AirPods 3 during the 'California Streaming' event earlier this week. Ming-Chi Kuo, a market analyst, has forecast that the new TWS earphones will either be more expensive than the AirPods 2 or the same as their predecessor. In all possibilities, Kuo claims that Apple will continue to offer both earphones at the same time, as the AirPods 3 design is expected to be similar to the AirPods Pro, as Bloomberg's Mark Gurman predicted in August.
