In an investors note, Apple is reportedly releasing an upgrade to the AirPods Pro 2 which will reportedly be announced in late 2022. The report suggests that “a significant upgrade to the main chip” is “likely…” but no other details are shared.


The second-generation AirPods Pro are rumoured to feature a new design that removes the tip on the bottom of the AirPods, meaning it is stemless, and look something more like the Beats fit pro and are expected to drop in the fourth quarter of 2022.

The new AirPods Pro 2 will reportedly have a stemless deign that takes the shape of the Beats Studio Buds.

This timeline of releasing the product later on in 2022 would make sense, as Apple will want to keep the 'pros' updated to the latest hardware capabilities.
