Back in 2019, Apple unveiled the AirPods Pro. These are the more “pro” version of the regular AirPods which is supposed to offer better sound quality and features like active noise-cancellation. It has been two years since it was updated, but it seems that the wait could be worth it.
According to notable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, a note to investors that was viewed by 9to5Mac has revealed some details about the AirPods Pro 2. Kuo claims that for the second-gen AirPods Pro, Apple will apparently be changing up the form factor of the earbuds. He does not mention what it could look like so we’ll just have to wait and see.
He also adds that the earbuds will feature support for Apple Lossless format, a new charging case that can emit a sound so that users can better track it in case it gets lost, and there is also a chance that it could come with health features built into it. Apple has openly admitted that baking health features into the AirPods is not a bad idea, so the AirPods Pro 2 could be the perfect candidate.
The earbuds are scheduled to be launched in the second quarter of 2022, meaning that it might not be announced alongside the new iPhones, but either way, when it does launch, it would have been three years since the first model was launched.
