In addition to our traditional Mid-Autumn Festival this week, it also coincides with Apple’s special autumn events on the 9th and 8th. The protagonist this time is naturally the iPhone 14 series. It is reported that Apple will also bring the second generation of AirPods Pro wireless headphones, or According to Apple product whistleblower Mark Gurman, he actually said as early as last year that Apple would launch the second-generation AirPods Pro in 2022. According to this line of thinking, Apple is the wireless headset with the “professional” suffix. It has also been prepared for a long time.
It is said that the new AirPods Pro has changed its shape on the basis of the current model to make it more secure to wear. It is mainly an upgrade of some internal functions, including the new H2 chip, which can support higher-quality ALAC format audio, but also Possibly an upgrade to Bluetooth 5.2 technology for LC3 high-efficiency audio. In addition, the charging box has also been improved, and there are also rumors that Apple will add speakers to it to better support the Find My search function.
It has been almost 3 years since AirPods Pro was released in October 2019. Although as an accessory, it will not be replaced every year like the iPhone, but under the rhythm of today’s ever-changing market, AirPods Pro is really attractive to consumers. It’s not enough, especially the noise reduction function, which was still a big selling point at the time, is equipped on the current entry-level wireless headphones (regardless of the noise reduction effect), so Apple still has to lead the new AirPods Pro. direction.
According to Apple’s past sales strategy, the second-generation AirPods Pro should not be named AirPods Pro 2, but will directly replace the current AirPods Pro for sale. The price should also remain the same, but it is uncertain whether the new earphones will be available in the market. It will be sold after the press conference, and it is expected that it will not be until after the Mid-Autumn Festival holiday before everyone can buy it.
