The initial AirPods have been available for slightly over five years. Despite being mocked at first for having somewhat oversized stems, they quickly gained popularity and are now prevalent everywhere.

However, those stems continue to be a contentious issue and are the target of the most radical rumored revisions for the AirPods Pro 2.

So the size of third edition of the ordinary AirPods and the AirPods Pro from 2019 had been an issue for some fans. But, the latest leaks show that Apple is favoring a rounder, in-ear form with the release of the AirPods Pro 2.

Beginning in 2022, according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the AirPods Pro 2 will have a redesigned form factor that is more akin to the Beats Fit Pro from 2021. As a result, these wireless earbuds would likely have an in-ear wingtip style.

If so, changes would also be made to the charging case for AirPods. According to rumors, it will still be 21mm thick and 46mm and 54mm in height and width. The current AirPods Pro charging case is 45.2mm x 60.6mm.

Audiophiles can anticipate that the AirPods Pro 2 will have a similar shape to the current model, but with a change to the ear tips, according to a fresh leak from 52audio in June. 52audio was also the source of the leak that accurately anticipated the design of some previous airpods.

Although Apple may continue with the white version of the product, as of right now, neither a leaker nor an expert has forecasted additional colors for the AirPods Pro 2.

More recent rumors claim Apple is developing a brand-new audio transmission technology that may eventually displace Bluetooth. 

The AirPods could then be the one of the first headphones to provide lossless sound quality. If so, the AirPods Pro 2 will become the best-sounding wireless earphones available in the market.

Another interesting and perhaps disturbing new security feature being developed by Apple is the ability for the AirPods to recognize the user based on the shape of their ear. This might sound a little dystopian.

Kuo predicts that in the last quarter of 2022, we can expect the new AirPods Pro 2 will be available for the Airpods lovers.
