There have been rumors about the AirPods Pro 2 for a long time. We already have an idea of what the ears will look like. We take you through the rumor mill and list 5 features that we expect.
We’ve been hearing for years that the AirPods Pro 2 are coming. Yet it still hasn’t happened. It seems to be the next AirPods as we saw the AirPods 3 last year. There are therefore strong rumors that the Pro 2 will come this year or early next year
What can we expect from the AirPods Pro 2?
Through all those years of rumours, we already have a reasonable picture, although it is of course questionable whether it is all correct. In this article I will at least list the five rumors that, in my opinion, have the greatest chance of coming true.
#1 Longer battery life
If we can expect anything, it is better battery life. The competition is not sitting still and have already come up with different earphones that last longer on a full charge than the AirPods Pro. In addition, we also only have to look at the AirPods 3. These ears last six hours on a charge, while the Pro has to do with 4.5 hours.
The current AirPods Pro contains the H1 chip. Since this one has been on the market for years, it is time for a new one. Ming-Chi Kuo already reported that the chip in the AirPods Pro 2 will receive a major update. The most obvious is that it is given the name H2. Unfortunately, Kuo didn’t say what the improvements entail. Still, we expect better sound quality and improved active noise cancellation.
#3 Improved in-ear detection
Like the battery, this may also be a feature that Apple is taking from the AirPods 3. It has improved in-ear detection through a new sensor. We would be surprised if we don’t see this again with the AirPods Pro 2. The Pro now does it with two optical sensors that are less accurate.
#4 Fitness tracking
This rumor dates back to 2021 and comes from reliable Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman. According to him, the AirPods Pro 2 will have motion sensors that focus on sports. That also has another advantage, since the data can be used for Apple’s Fitness app and its subscription service.
#5 Design of the AirPods Pro 2
The AirPods 3 have been given a neat metamorphosis and it will therefore not surprise anyone if Apple does this with the AirPods Pro 2 thinly. Gurman already reported about this in 2020. He then reported that the new Pro will have a more compact design. The stems may disappear, making it look more like the Beats Studio Buds. Yet there are also sources that claim that in terms of appearance not much will change.
Controversial move to USB-C passes (according to Kuo) AirPods Pro 2
We may see a difference in design in the case. According to Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is making the switch to a USB-C connection for the earphones.
