AirPods Pro 2 biggest change has been blown out of the water by a new information


The AirPods Pro 2, Apple has long been believed to be looking to create its most popular wireless earbuds smaller, and the stem is thought to be either cut shorter or eliminated. But this may not be the case, according to a new study of an old leak proves true.

In contrast to the stem-free design, MacRumors published a collection of leaked photos of AirPods Pro 2 with the stem intact (pictured in the above image). Although the size of the earbuds wasn’t apparent, a new study of the photos by Concept design Ian Zelbo suggests they would be the same size as before.

What can he determine? The photos demonstrated a change in skin-detect sensors – the black spot on one side of the earbuds. In the case of both generations, you’ll observe the size change as shown through the MacRumors (opens in a new tab) below.

The initial generation AirPods Pro (left) featured an optical sensor that could sense the moment something was placed on it but could not identify what. Music could continue to play when something was put upon it, regardless of whether it wasn’t your ears.

The AirPods 3 came out with AirPods 3.0, and Apple introduced more sophisticated sensors designed specifically to detect water content within the wearer’s skin. It’s a smaller, more robust sensor, and it looks like its predecessor, the AirPod Pro 2 bud shown on the right side of the photo above.

To give you a comparison, take a look at AirPods 3:

Comparing their size if the original leak is true, Zelbo concludes that the AirPods Pro 2 form factor is likely to be the same.

It may be surprising considering the numerous rumors about changes to the design; however, re-examining the forecasts offers plenty of space. Mark Gurman, for example, claimed that even though Apple was looking to make earbuds less bulky, however, the difficulty of finding noise cancellation microphones and wireless antennas in the space “could result in a less ambitious design when the product is finalized.”

However, just because the style is identical, it does not mean there won’t be things inside that you can look forward to. The case may come with ‘Find Me technology as an example. We also learned that the latest buds might be able to support the lossless codec audio to provide a truly amazing sound experience.

Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says we’ll likely be seeing AirPods Pro 2 in the autumn, making it likely they’ll come along with an iPhone 14. in September.
