Apple AirPods have been one of the most popular headphones to date thanks to their iconic design, exceptional mic, and excellent noise isolation, however, it looks like the AirPods Pro 2 will raise the bar yet again when they release.

While there is still relative mystery around the AirPods Pro 2, clues to its design and functionality are starting to roll in, alongside when we could get to try them for ourselves.

Here's everything we know so far.

Apple AirPods Pro 2 Release Date

It's expected that the new Apple AirPods Pro 2s will arrive this year, however, there is no confirmed date just yet.

The AirPods Pro was released around October 30, 2019, so we would assume that we're looking at around the same time this year if it does go ahead.

With the various shortages and supply issues of last year still fresh in our minds, we're hoping it's a smooth release.

But the question still remains...what should we expect when they do head our way?

At this stage not much is known about the specs of the Apple AirPods Pro 2, however, there are some nuggets of information to go by.

A recent patent, spotted by AppleInsider, details a potentially exciting new feature - an interrupt for noise-cancelling audio devices.

This feature, put simply, concerns itself with the AirPods Pro's noise cancellation and looks to put control back to the user when it comes to hearing what they want to hear from the outside world.

Unlike some noise-cancelling headphones that can allow a level of outside sound in, if this feature were to go ahead it could allow you to designate sounds or even words that will be 'let through'.

It's an exciting feature and one we think has a number of different usages, but whether it goes ahead is still yet to be seen.

Patents are notoriously hit and miss, so it's worth managing expectations, however, the concept doesn't seem to be out of this world for Apple, so we're cautiously optimistic.

Apple AirPods Pro 2 Design

The Apple AirPods Pro's stem was already shorter than the AirPods stem, but it looks like the AirPods Pro 2 may do away with them altogether, according to Bloomberg.

This would make the Apple AirPods Pro 2s look a little closer to the Samsung Galaxy Buds or Pixel Buds, but we'll be interested to see how they keep their iconic style intact without the stem.

Watch this space.

Apple AirPods Pro 2 Price

Not much is known about the potential price tag, but considering the AirPods Pros goes for around £240 / $249, we would expect a similar if not higher price.

It's also unlikely that they'll be discounted for a while, but what we may see is the AirPods Pro hit the Black Friday sales instead.
