Three years after Apple released the AirPods Pro, the company is at long last ready to talk about the second incarnation of the earbuds at its big September hardware event. Previous reports indicated that AirPods Pro 2 wouldn’t have significant design changes, with most of the changes reserved for the interior. But there’s one big update to the exterior: touch controls. You’ll be able to control audio playback with swipe gestures on the AirPods Pro’s stems.
The earbuds are powered by a new chip, the H2. Apple claims this will help AirPods Pro cancel out up to twice as much noise. There’s a new driver that could help to improve the audio quality, and there’s spatial audio support. You’ll be able to use your iPhone’s camera to set up a custom spatial audio profile.
