AirPods Pro 2 Launching This Year With Suppliers Told To Gear Up For Shipments
Apple is reportedly getting ready to announce the AirPods Pro 2 high-end earbuds later this year with DigiTimes saying that the company has told suppliers to get ready to have shipments in place.
The new second generation AirPods Pro have been rumored to have a couple of key changes to the model that is already popular with wearers.
According to a recent report by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the new earbuds will ship with a refreshed Wireless Charging Case that will have its own speaker. That speaker will be used to allow Find My integration, giving people the chance to instruct their AirPods to emit a sound when they’re being located.
The same Kuo research note also suggested that Apple’s AirPods Pro 2 will come with support for lossless audio, something that is very interesting indeed.
Current wireless headphones are incapable of lossless streaming because of the bandwidth offered by Bluetooth — it’s possible that Apple will use a different connection type for its new earbuds, but details are currently scarce.
A release timescale isn’t clear at the moment, although it is possible that Apple could announce its new earbuds alongside its 2022 iPhone lineup, likely to be dubbed iPhone 14.
If that’s the case, expect to see an announcement in or around September time. According to the DigiTimes report, Apple’s suppliers are already gearing up for the big day.
