Apple’s technological setting experienced an important shift yesterday with the final elimination of the Lightning port and the full roll-out of USB-C. This is meant to include the AirPods Pro 2 plus the new iPhones.
The new AirPods Pro 2 is now compatible with 20-bit, 48 kHz lossless Audio due to the charging via USB-C adapter. Here is a capture, though: this feature only works with the recently released Apple Vision Pro headset that will launch in the US beginning next year.
As stated by Apple, the H2 chip displayed inside the AirPods Pro 2 or the Vision Pro enables the transmission of audio without any loss. This poses an issue of why this function had been removed from the Lightning model from the year before.
The IP rating of the new AirPods Pro 2, which utilizes the USB-C connector, has significantly
improved. Along with the waterproofing and sweat resistance provided by the IPX4-rated Lightning AirPods Pro 2, they additionally have an IP54 categorization, providing enhanced dust protection. Also, the AirPods Pro 2 currently allows Adaptive Audio, Personalized Volume, and Conversation Awareness.
The case increases the battery life to 30 hours of audio playback while preserving an ongoing battery lifespan of 6 hours. A further helpful function is the capacity to reverse recharge the AirPods Pro 2 with the USB-C port on your iPhone.
The AirPods Pro 2 along with the charging USB-C case is accessible in the elegant white color at $249. These will be made available on the 22nd of September in addition to the new Apple watches.
