Apple may unveil third-generation AirPods and a high-fidelity tier of Apple Music on May 18, according to a new leak.

Various leaks claim that Apple will introduce the AirPods 3 and Apple Music HiFi on May 18. That would be earlier than expected.

Is Apple Preparing for the Third Generation AirPods?

The new rumor suggests that Apple may be releasing the third generation of AirPods and a new premium tier of Apple Music called HiFi. After YouTuber Luke Miani first revealed him, other leaks backed him up with their own leaks.

Miani tweeted "May 18" before reaching out to AppleTrack for more details. He claims Apple plans to announce the third generation AirPods and Apple Music HiFi via a press release.
