Apple has explained why the new second-generation AirPods Pro silicone eartips are officially incompatible with the original AirPods Pro.
In an updated support document, Apple said that the original AirPods Pro eartips have “noticeably tighter mesh” than the second-generation eartips.
The ear tips have been designed specifically for different generations of AirPods Pro to provide the highest sound quality. Use the ear tips that come with your AirPods Pro. The AirPods Pro (1st generation) eartips have a noticeably denser mesh than the AirPods Pro (2nd generation) eartips.
Despite the differences in mesh, the second-generation earbuds physically fit the original AirPods Pro. The second generation ear tips are available in the new XS variant, while the original ear tips are only available in small, medium and large sizes.
The new AirPods Pro 2 went on sale today for $250.
Apple how to understand it? New AirPods Pro 2 are asking for battery replacement as soon as possible
According to some users of the new AirPods Pro 2 fully wireless headphones, from the very first days of use, they receive a message to replace the batteries in their headphones as soon as possible.
According to Mydrivers, the bug triggers battery change notifications from the Find My app on nearby devices when the battery of your AirPods Pro headphones or MagSafe charging case is low.
Since the second generation AirPods Pro uses the U1 chip for precise searching, enhanced Find Me, and transmits battery level information at any time, it is speculated that the erroneous notification may be related to these new features.
The notice urges users to replace the battery as soon as possible, but in this case, according to Mydrivers, it is enough to charge them. Especially since the battery of AirPods cannot be replaced. This notification is similar to the one the AirTag uses when the CR2032 battery is low and needs to be replaced, so the system seems to be confusing the two products.
It’s unclear how widespread the issue is, and Apple has yet to respond. It is likely that the error will be resolved with a software update soon.
Bloomberg: the appearance of Adaptive Transparency Mode in AirPods Pro and AirPods Max is a bug
According to Bloomberg editor Mark Gurman, the Adaptive Transparency Mode feature that debuted on the AirPods Pro 2 wireless earbuds won’t be coming to the original AirPods Pro or AirPods Max.
The adaptive transparency mode setting, which appeared in the beta version of Apple iOS 16.1 Beta 3, according to Gurman, is a bug that will be fixed at the time the final version of the firmware is released.
Previously, AirPods Max and original AirPods Pro users noticed that Adaptive Transparency Mode replaced the original transparency mode setting after updating to iOS 16.1 Beta 3. Apple was believed to be extending this feature to older AirPods.
The adaptive transparency mode of the Apple AirPods Pro 2 wireless headphones is one of their unique features. Bloomberg writes that the original AirPods Pro and AirPods Max won’t have this capability, and Apple accidentally made the adaptive transparency mode setting visible to those devices that don’t actually support it.
With the new H2 chip in AirPods Pro 2, on-device processing technology reduces loud ambient noises such as passing car horns, construction noise, and so on.
AirPods Pro 2 battery capacity has increased by 15%, and the charging case has not changed much
The longer battery life of the second-generation AirPods Pro is partly due to the use of larger batteries in the earbuds themselves, as regulatory filings show.
Apple says that compared to the first-generation AirPods Pro, the second-generation model has an additional 1.5 hours of battery life with active noise cancellation turned on, that is, 6 hours of battery life. Listings in the 3C database show that the AirPods Pro 2 have a 49.7 mAh battery. This is 15% more than the 43.24 mAh capacity of the first generation AirPods Pro.
The second-generation MagSafe Charging Case for AirPods Pro has a 523 mAh battery, just 4 mAh more than the previous model. According to Apple, the second-generation MagSafe Charging Case for AirPods Pro provides an additional six hours of battery life, for a total of 30 hours of listening time with active noise cancellation turned on.
So it’s highly likely that the charging case’s longer battery life is actually mostly due to improvements in the earbuds. In addition to physically larger batteries, AirPods Pro’s second generation H2 chips and new detection sensors help extend battery life through greater power efficiency.
