Apple has unveiled the second generation of AirPods Pro, the most sophisticated AirPods ever. With the power of the new H2 chip, AirPods Pro achieves breakthrough audio performance, including significant improvements to Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency mode, while also providing a novel way to enjoy Spatial Audio that is even more immersive. Customers may now experience Touch control for music playing and volume changes straight from the stem, as well as longer battery life, a redesigned charging case, and an extra ear tip size for a better fit.
The power of the new H2 processor, housed in a lightweight and small housing, gives an amazing acoustic experience and suppresses up to twice as much noise as the previous generation AirPods Pro. AirPods Pro now produces fuller bass and crystal-clear sound over a broader frequency range thanks to a redesigned low-distortion audio driver and bespoke amplifier. Because the greatest audio experience isn’t complete without a comfortable in-ear fit, a new extra tiny ear tip is provided so that even more individuals may enjoy the wonder of AirPods Pro.
Transparency mode allows listeners to be connected to and aware of their surroundings. Adaptive Transparency extends this popular feature even further. The powerful H2 processor allows on-device processing, which suppresses strong ambient noise — such as a passing car siren, construction equipment, or even concert speakers — for more pleasant daily listening.
Precise and Immersive Sound
The AirPods listening experience is even more immersive with Personalized Spatial Audio. Sound is perceived differently by each user depending on the size and shape of their head and ears. Using the iPhone’s TrueDepth camera, users may develop a customized profile for Spatial Audio that gives a listening experience that is perfectly tailored to them. Personalized Spatial Audio with music, movies, and TV programs – with dynamic head tracking — is available on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV.
The magical experience users have come to love from the AirPods family gets even better with the next generation of AirPods Pro. Instant pairing to all Apple devices makes setup effortless, while the new dedicated AirPods section in iOS Settings lets users easily access and control their AirPods features.
Now, users can control media playback and turn up the volume without using another device. With Touch control on AirPods Pro, a light swipe up or down on the stem enables quick volume adjustments. Press the stem to change the music, answer phone calls, and more, or say “Hey Siri” to make requests hands-free. The improved, built-in skin-detect sensor more accurately turns on or off playback, and delivers better battery life.
Extended Battery Life
AirPods Pro provide 1.5 hours more listening time than the original, for a total of up to six hours with Active Noise Cancellation. Users may enjoy up to 30 hours of total listening time with Active Noise Cancellation using the case for four extra charges – a full six hours longer than the previous version.
Customers may now charge AirPods Pro using an Apple Watch charger, in addition to a MagSafe charger, Qi-certified charging pad, or the Lightning cord, for more flexibility while travelling.
All-New Charging Case
AirPods Pro come with a newly designed charging case that is sweat- and water-resistant, as well as a lanyard loop for easy access. Users with an U1-enabled iPhone may utilise Precision Finding to find their charging case using suggested guidance. The charging case also has a built-in speaker for stronger tones, making it even simpler to find.
Customers may now customise the charging case with their own Memoji, such as custom-posed Memoji, Animoji, and a curated range of stickers. To begin engraving, use the Apple Store app and create and upload a Memoji.
AirPods Pro (2nd generation) will be available to order online and in the Apple Store app starting Friday, September 9, with availability in stores beginning Friday, September 23.
