That writes Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman, who is often the first to report Apple’s plans. The AirPods Pro 2 have been rumored for some time, with an introduction this fall being obvious. According to Gurman, the unveiling is part of Apple’s Far Out event Wednesday evening, where the iPhone 14 and three new Apple Watches are also expected.

The AirPods Pro 2 would have more or less the same design as the predecessor, which appeared at the end of 2019. They would have a new version of the H1 chip, which should provide longer battery life and better sound quality.

Bluetooth 5.2

Apple’s firmware recently hinted at support for the LC3 audio codec, which would make the AirPods Pro 2 the first Apple earphones to receive support for Bluetooth 5.2. The new codec ensures a more stable and efficient connection. Phone calls also sound better and music with a higher bitrate is supported.

The AirPods Pro 2 would also support lossless audio. Since last year, Apple Music offers all this higher audio quality.

Charging box

The charging case of the new AirPod Pros would also have a slightly different design. According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the box still has a Lightning port. According to him, Apple will only make the switch to USB-c ports in the iPhone and its accessories next year, partly because the European Union will soon make USB-c mandatory.
