After the release of AirPods 3, Apple may be developing AirPods Pro 2, and it is expected to go online early next year. Earlier news that AirPods Pro 2 may adopt a handleless design, but the newly exposed renderings conflict with this statement and will still adopt a design similar to the first generation.
This spy photo of the suspected AirPods Pro 2 comes from Xerxes, but the source did not have any accurate reports before, so there is still a question mark about reliability. However, the source said that this new rendering came from inside Apple.
Judging from the rendering, the appearance design of AirPods Pro 2 seems to be the same as the original AirPods. However, it is not equipped with an optical sensor under each earbud. However, with the introduction of AirPods 3, Apple no longer uses optical sensors, so AirPods Pro 2 is very likely to have the same changes. AirPods Pro 2 may be equipped with a skin detection sensor instead of an optical sensor.
Compared with the earplugs, the charging box of AirPods Pro 2 seems to provide a greater change. It provides a speaker hole at the bottom, which is a strange choice for a charging case, but the leaker hinted that Apple will provide the Find My function in iOS 16. That is, the speaker hole will indicate the user’s location. This charging box will also have a metal ring position, which will be used to connect the belt.
