Apple’s supply chain sources are among the most dependable, and a fresh report claims that orders for AirPods Pro 2 components have already been placed.
According to a new source, the AirPods Pro will likely be updated in 2022, expected significant upgrades. AirPods and AirPods Pro are still in high demand, and Apple has revamped the entry-level device, which is now in its third generation. AirPods Pro is also due for an update, and the latest report says Apple is working on the new model ahead of schedule.
AirPods Pro, Apple’s top-of-the-line earbuds, debuted with the greatest sound quality available in a fully wireless design, eliminating the need for wires to maintain sound synchronized between the left and right sides. These earphones stood out as something remarkable because they had one of the best implementations of active noise cancellation. An inward-facing microphone enables adaptive equalization, which adjusts the sound to the wearer’s hearing, compensating for minor fit issues.
The design of the AirPods Pro, as good as it was in 2019, is starting to show its age. Apple has released two competitive products, raising questions about the AirPods Pro’s high pricing compared to AirPods 3, which has the same adaptive EQ, and Beats Fit Pro, which is nearly identical to and exceeds the AirPods Pro in nearly every manner at a lower price. The release of a new design was rumored by the end of 2021, but it never materialized. According to a DigiTimes article, the wait will be ended later this year. According to Apple supply chain insiders, a large number of orders for AirPods Pro 2 components have been placed, indicating that the product may commence manufacture sooner than expected to avoid the delays that have plagued technology shipments in recent years.
What’s Different About AirPods Pro 2?
According to previous leaks, Apple’s second-generation AirPods Pro is rumored to enable lossless audio, a first for wireless earphones. The current generation of AirPods’ use of Bluetooth is a limiting factor, and Apple is thought to have a remedy in the works, possibly releasing a new wireless protocol capable of handling high-bandwidth lossless music.
Spatial Audio is believed to have greater precision, decreased latency, and the ability to handle fast head turns while keeping the sound in the same virtual position. The AirPods Pro can currently detect when they are removed and silence any music playing, but according to multiple sources, more sensors are on the way to help track the wearer’s health. Body temperature, pulse rate, and other parameters might be precisely recorded from within the ear. AirPods Pro 2 should be a hot gift for the holidays in 2022, thanks to improved sound and increased health advantages.
