Apple could still launch its AirPods Pro 2 in 2022. After three years without major updates, Apple’s true wireless headphones with ANC are said to have received significant improvements. The release date is closer than expected. According to Bloomberg, we can already expect the release in autumn.
- The new AirPods Pro are said to offer major software and hardware changes and all-new health features.
- Apple is said to offer its AirPods Max in different colors.
The usually well-informed Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman reports in his newsletter that he has some interesting information about Apple’s upcoming wearables. The next wireless in-ears from Apple could therefore come onto the market as early as this fall.
Apple is launching new AirPods Pro 2
When the AirPods Pro launched in October 2019, they brought a breath of fresh air to Apple’s audio catalogue, including active noise cancellation and surround sound.
Two and a half years later, active noise cancellation (ANC) and spatial audio, which was hyper-innovative for the time, are no longer really innovative. According to Gurman, those who jumped at Apple’s earbuds early on should now notice that the battery life has dropped significantly. It’s high time that Apple is launching a new version of its true wireless headphones.
Mark Gurman also says that the new AirPods Pro bring big hardware changes, new health features, and other notable software and hardware improvements. A few months ago, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo hinted that the new headphones might be able to deliver lossless audio using Apple’s ALAC audio codec.
AirPods Max in new colors
There is also news about the AirPods Max , which came onto the market in December 2020 and which so far are only available in white and black. Apple is reportedly not currently working on a new generation of the model. Instead, according to Mark Gurman, Apple is more likely to offer us the AirPods Max in various new colors. Not quite the update Apple fans are hoping for, but better than nothing, right?
