Despite Apple keeping information regarding its third-generation AirPods close to the ground, Amazon has just listed a protective case for the upcoming headphones. As reported by tech journalist Ben Gaskin, the retailer is now selling silicone covers for the AirPods 3. Take a look below.

The news arrives shortly after an accidental design leak was revealed by Apple itself, 9to5Mac reports. An upcoming beta version of iOS 13.2 seemed to reveal what the rumored Airpods 3 would look like. Slated to come with noise-canceling abilities, the icon below, found in an Accessibility section of the Settings app, depicted the new AirPods with in-ear cushioning.

Other references in the software suggest the new AirPods will feature multiple listening modes, which is speculated to include noise canceling or “focus mode.” The new AirPods are currently referred to by the model code B298.

According to the leaked illustration, the new AirPods look very much like previously leaked images, which was rumored to be an AirPods 3 prototype. Check out the image below.

It’s possible the new AirPods will be announced later this month at the next Apple event.

There has also been speculation about Apple’s next iPhone design, check out what we know so far here.
