Recently, a tipster leaked some worthy information about the Apple AirPods Pro 2. Many users were hoping to grab it along with the new iPhone 12 series. Unfortunately, the leak comes with some bad news regarding the release date. However, it hasn’t been confirmed by Apple itself, so there is still hope! Further, the leak also revealed the price of the AirPods Pro 2 and its newly added features.
Apple AirPods Pro 2 Price and Release Date
According to the leak released by a tipster on Twitter, the second generation of the popular AirPods will possibly cost $249. The bad news is that the product won’t hit the markets before the end of 2021 or latest by early 2022. Thus, Apple fans will have to wait for another year. Since the leak hasn’t been confirmed yet, there is still some hope left. Waiting for Apple’s official statement on the same is the only option at the moment.
Apple AirPods Pro 2 New features
The leak has stated that the new generation AirPods will have a better battery life, improved noise cancellation feature, and even ambient light sensors. The tipster went on to mention that even though the above features sound good, it would not be a great update over the first generation. The leak is in line with a previous one, which revealed that the new AirPods will use its ambient light sensor feature to take biometric measurements, potentially for monitoring blood oxygen levels like the Apple Watch 6.
As per the rumors, this could work like the ear-based clip-on pulse oximeters that hospitals use. These devices shine light through the earlobe to detect the amount of oxygen in a patient’s blood. Since Apple will have to change the design of its AirPods to make this happen, it is highly unlikely that it would include the feature.
The AirPods Studio
Before the AirPods Pro 2 can release, Apple might release its first over-ear headphones, AirPods Studio. After several leaks and rumors, the device is expected to release before the end of 2020. However, recent reports stating the production delays could affect the release date, pushing it to a 2021 release. Judging by the pricing pattern, the AirPods Studio could also be high priced. Apple tries to keep a high price on its products to maintain its “niche audience” status.
