Photos of the AirPods Pro 2 have surfaced online, revealing new possibilities for their charging case. However, the source remains fallible.
Please note that the following should be taken with a grain of salt. While Apple has announced AirPods 3 with a design closer to the Pro version, now the rumors are again referring to the AirPods Pro 2, which are an improved version of the premium wireless earbuds from the Apple marque.
Pictures of AirPods Pro 2?
Expected for 2022, the AirPods Pro 2 should logically be the subject of several leaks in the coming months. Most recently published by MacRumors on Friday, October 22 with images to support it.
With regards to the headphones, the design displayed here is very close to the first generation. We get the iconic rod design, which is slightly curved. However, one notable difference should be noted: the absence of an optical (infrared) sensor inside which the user’s ear can be detected. This, like the AirPods 3, will be replaced by a more accurate skin detection sensor, thus avoiding false positives.
Apart from this detail, there will be no change in the beauty of these headphones. However, that won’t stop Apple from offering improvements in sound or noise reduction.
a better case
Still to believe this rumour, the main novelty (visible) would be expected on the side of the charging box. Notably, it will be equipped with tiny speakers, which makes it possible to emit sound using the Find My tool if it gets lost under your bag or under a couch cushion. .
Another visual change: The side of the AirPods Pro 2’s case has a hole in the side of a small metal piece for hanging a strap. If an Apple product hasn’t had such an element for years, this idea would allow you to always keep your headphones hanging over you, in the loop of a bag or keychain. So it’ll be the same as the Find My option: don’t lose your AirPods anymore.
an unfathomable rumor
The idea is therefore interesting, but as noted at the beginning of this article, the source remains questionable. MacRumors specifies that there is no history of his source and that no evidence other than the above images can confirm the veracity of his statements. Also, the metal part seems strangely integrated into the image and could have been added digitally. Analysis forensics However, the image does not show any particular artifacts at this location.
Also remember that Mark Gurman, Bloomberg said that Apple would drop its iconic rod on the AirPods Pro 2 to move to a design type of “buds”. However, the information is dated 2020 and provided for the AirPods 3 release in the first quarter of 2021. Suffice it to say that there is still room for doubt.
