AirPods Pro 2 may include new motion sensors, delayed until 2022

The rumor: Apple’s second-generation AirPods Pro won’t be seeing their release this year after all, according to Mark Gurman (88.7% accurate, via Bloomberg).

  • New Pro AirPods “will include updated motion sensors with a focus on fitness tracking” Gurman says
  • There may also be a radical smaller, stemless design that debuts on these new AirPods
  • AirPods Pro 2 are currently expected to debut sometime in 2022

Our take: Considering that these aren’t coming this year, I would bet we’ll see the new stemless design here. To hold us over until 2022, we’re getting AirPods 3.
