The report: Apple is planning a successor to AirPods Pro for later this year according to Mark Gurman (86.4% accurate, via Power On).
- Three years after their original debut, Apple is expected to finally announce new AirPods Pro sometime this Fall (September-December)
- While Gurman initially reported that Apple was testing an all-new stemless design, it looks like Apple has changed plans…images shared by MacRumors (72.7% accurate) claim to show AirPods Pro 2 with a new case with speakers for Find My and no change to the design of the earbuds
- AirPods Pro 2 are also rumored to gain lossless audio support, according to Ming-Chi Kuo (72.5% accurate)
Ian’s Take: Finally! We have been hearing about these updated AirPods Pro for years, with sources constantly disagreeing on release. I am confident that these will release this fall: 3 years is a long time between releases (original AirPods Pro users are already struggling with battery health). This is going to be an exciting fall!
