New AirPods Pro rumored to feature Find My support, USB-C, heart rate detection, improved sound, and more
With rumors suggesting Apple will announce new second-generation AirPods Pro later this year, a new report from 52Audio has outlined what new features could be introduced with the improved earbuds including audio upgrades, Find My support, USB-C, heart rate detection, and more.
Claiming to have received information about the new AirPods, the site says the earbuds will boast an updated H1 chip to offer improved battery performance and acoustics, Find My support to allow users to find their misplaced AirPods using the Find My network, heart rate and temperature detection through new health monitoring sensors, a USB-C charging port that replaces Lightning, and new hearing aid capabilities.
It is expected that the second-generation AirPods Pro will retain the original design of the first-generation that launched in 2019, with an updated wireless charging case on the cards with speakers to enable louder audio when users play a sound to locate their missing AirPods using Find My.
Reports have suggested that the new AirPods Pro will have support for Lossless Audio, something that currently requires a wired connection to headphones, receivers or powered speakers to listen to music without traditional audio compression.
