Earlier this year, Apple launched AirPods Pro with active noise cancellation technology. The company switched to an in-ear design for better noise isolation. Leaks of a second-generation AirPods Pro has surfaced online. It seems like Apple might be planning to launch them in two sizes.
As per rumours, Apple might change the design of its AirPods with the next iteration. In the next iteration, Apple is rumoured to eliminate the elongated stem and introduce a more compact design. It means the design will be more or less like that of a Google Pixel Buds or a Samsung Galaxy Buds. This eventually means AirPods Pro 2 will come with a more rounded shape.
Earlier this week, Mr-White, a reliable Apple tipster, tweeted a couple of images of the alleged internal hardware of AirPods Pro 2. The images show off the upgraded system in a package enclosure for the earbuds. The first image shows off the next-generation AirPods hardware (blue enclosure) next to the current generation AirPods (silver). Notably, the next-generation hardware cables will come in two different sizes.

As per experts, this implies either Apple could launch AirPods Pro 2 in two different sizes to enable Apple will update both its standard and Pro variants to the in ear design. The second alternative has been rumoured for quite some time now. Basically, Apple will introduce two different sizes to cater to two different audiences.
Mr.White further revealed that AirPods Pro 2 will come equipped with Apple’s H1 chipset and it will come with Bluetooth 5.0 support. Other features are low latency, and hands-free ‘Hey Siri’. Note that H1 chipset is an upgrade over the W1 chipset that is found on the original AirPods.
