Apple AirPods Pro 2 may be launched in the second half of the year, and supply chain manufacturers are preparing for shipment
According to MacRumors reports, there have been a lot of reports that the second generation of Apple AirPods Pro will be launched in the second half of this year. According to a new report from DigiTimes, in preparation for its launch, Apple's suppliers are gearing up for shipments of new high-end AirPods.
The new AirPods Pro 2 are widely expected to feature a new design, improved audio, the ability to play Apple Music lossless audio, and more. The new AirPods Pro 2 are scheduled to launch this year, specifically in the second half of 2022. Ahead of the launch, today's report says that suppliers are starting to prepare for shipments of the new wireless earphones.
Ming-Chi Kuo recently reported that the AirPods Pro 2 will feature a redesigned charging case that emits sound for use with Find My. Through integration with Find My, only the AirPods themselves will make a sound when called by the user. In the new AirPods Pro 2, the case will have speakers for louder sound, making it easier to find.
Leaked photos of the AirPods Pro 2 show the speaker holes on the case itself and possible accessories.
In addition to the new case, the new AirPods Pro 2 will also support playback of lossless Apple Music audio. Due to Bluetooth bandwidth limitations, none of Apple's existing AirPods models can play Apple Music's lossless audio. In a recent interview, Apple executives acknowledged that the limitations of Bluetooth hinder the potential of the AirPods experience, and said the team wanted "more bandwidth" than what Bluetooth itself can provide.
