Apple announced the new AirPods 3 at the brand's Apple 'Unleashed' event today. You can pre-order them right now and they will start shipping out by next week. Here's how to get the newest AirPods model in your ears as soon as possible: Right now the only retailer offering the new AirPods 3 is the Apple Store itself. You can pre-order the AirPods straight from a physical Apple Store or through the Apple Store app. Other retailers will get their AirPods stock in on October 26, but unfortunately aren't offering pre-orders. If you need the AirPods right now, the Apple Store is your best bet.

The new AirPods will cost $179. In line with their role as an upgrade to the main line of AirPods, they are more expensive than the AirPods 2, which still have a baseline cost of $129, but cheaper than AirPods Pro, which will stay at $249.
