Since the introduction of the new AirPods 3 at the latest, the current AirPods Pro have been taking a back seat, and it is difficult for customers to differentiate between them. With the upcoming AirPods Pro 2 this will finally change again.


The AirPods 3 not only copied the design from the Pro models, many functions were also adopted. Only active noise cancellation (ANC) currently makes a difference. From there on there are a lot in common, including MagSafe support for the Pro model. In addition, there is the small price difference in the free market. A decision is difficult.

AirPods Pro 2: Apple donated two new features

This could change with the new ones Second generation AirPods Pro. Not only will they get a new design without any “stubs”, new features should also make a bigger difference again. We come to this conclusion after studying the latest report from Ming-Chi Kuo – Apple expert and well-informed insider (source: MacRumors).

According to Kuo, the AirPods Pro 2 are getting two strong and new selling points, features that make a difference to the current offering. So should the headphones support Apple Lossless (ALAC) for the first time, loss-free audio enjoyment is currently still being hampered by the Bluetooth standard and requires wired high-end headphones. Ergo: None of the AirPods is currently able to do this.

The second new feature can be found in the charging case. If this is lost, it should be able to play a sound if desired so that it can be found. So far, this has only been possible with the earphones themselves, but not with the charging case. The AirPods Pro 2 are supposed to change this – headphones and charging cradle can then each searched and found separately via Apple’s Find My network will.

Apple’s possible release plans

Kuo awaits the launch of the AirPods Pro 2 for the fourth quarter 2022, in contrast to previous reports from other sources. They want to know about the start in the course of the third quarter. We think: It won’t be much earlier than September, we Kuo think it will be a little later.
