September’s Apple “Far Out” event will unveil AirPods Pro 2. Mark Gurman’s Power On newsletter provided this news. Originally, reports indicated the second-generation AirPods Pro will be launched between September and November. Now, a Bloomberg journalist says they’ll be introduced in three days.
Analysts and leakers agree that Apple will keep the same style with a few adjustments for AirPods Pro 2.
The charging case will be 46mm height and 54mm broad, according to rumours. AirPods Pro charging case is 45.2mm height and 60.6mm broad.
9to5Mac sources verified the next-generation AirPods Pro, code-named B698, will include Apple’s H1 chip. AirPods Pro 2 could be the first to introduce Bluetooth 5.2 functionality, given the AirPods Max beta software references LC3 codec support.
Gurman and Wu stated in 2020 that Apple explored a more compact design for the forthcoming AirPods Pro that would eliminate the stems below the earbuds, like the Beats Studio Buds. Recent rumours say the second-generation AirPods Pro won’t feature any design modifications.
Gurman said Apple will release a 6.1-inch iPhone 14, 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Plus, 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max, along with new Apple Watch Series 8, Apple Watch SE, and Apple Watch Pro models. He also suggested Apple “won’t discuss” AR/VR headset plans this week.

After years of rumours, the AirPods Pro 2 are finally here. This includes an enhanced H2 processor for higher audio quality and longer battery life, an improved noise-canceling mode, lossless audio support via optical audio transmission, motion sensors, and fitness tracking tech.
As for the design, previous rumors indicated Apple will be cutting the stem off of the AirPods Pro 2, similar to the Beats Studio Buds. 52audio reports that the AirPods Pro 2 will appear like the present model. Kuo predicted the upcoming AirPods pro would have a wing-tip like the Beats Fit Pro.
Kuo said AirPods will enable USB-C in 2023. AirPods Pro 2 are anticipated to acquire Lighting support this week. We may see a case upgrade later.
AirPods Pro 2 are finally near. The September “Far Out” event will have more huge announcements. The iPhone 14 and 14 Pro, together with the “rugged” Apple Watch 8 Pro, will steal the show.
