Apple event: Last-minute updates for iPhone 14, Watch 8, and AirPods Pro 2 are coming tomorrow but we have the rumored specs and price information lined up for you.
Apple AirPods Pro 2 — everything we know so far
At long last, the AirPods Pro 2 may finally be revealed as soon as this week. Apple’s “Far Out” September event is expected to show off the new wireless earbuds, but Apple’s rumored October event is also a contender. Either way, it looks like it won’t be long until we see the next-gen AirPods Pro.
Apple AirPods Pro 2 Price
Twitter leaker @LeakApplePro claims the AirPods Pro 2 cost the same as its predecessor, with a retail price of $249/£249. This would make the original earbuds irrelevant. Seeing as the AirPods Pro are the middle ground between the cheaper third-generation AirPods (from $179/£169) and the AirPods Max ($549/£549), it makes sense for Apple to stick with this price.
Apple AirPods Pro 2 Specs
AirPods Pro gen 2-249$-Better battery life-A bit better of noise cancelling.-Ambient light sensors.Overall, a not so great update, more of like the AirPods gen 2 over AirPods gen 1.Expect them to release in Q4 2021 or Q1 2022.October 19, 2020
AirPods 3 orders for 2-3Q22 have been cut by 30%+. Due to the failed product segmentation strategy, demand for AirPods 3 is significantly weaker than for AirPods 2. AirPods Pro may get discontinued after Apple launches AirPods Pro 2 in 2H22 to avoid repeating the same mistake.

The stem of the AirPods Pro are host to a big feature: the squeeze mechanic to pick up phone calls or to control music. However, the next AirPods Pro could also adopt “in-air gestures. The AirPods Pro 2 are expected to have better battery life, improve the noise-canceling mode, and have “ambient light sensors.” That last feature is expected to be for fitness, which will be able to measure your blood oxygen levels and detect your heart rate. To back this up, Kuo recently stated the AirPods Pro 2 will have “innovative” features, including health tracking.
