Users can enjoy Personalised Spatial Audio with music, movies, and TV shows — with dynamic head tracking — across iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV. Now, users can enjoy Touch control for media playback and volume adjustments directly from the stem.
AirPods Pro offer 1.5 hours of additional listening time over the first generation, going up to six hours now with ANC. Using the case for four additional charges, users can enjoy up to 30 hours of total listening time with Active Noise Cancellation. The AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) can now charge with an Apple Watch charger, in addition to a MagSafe charger, Qi-certified charging mat, or the Lightning cable.
Additionally, the case is now sweat- and water-resistant. With Precision Finding, users with a U1-enabled iPhone can locate their charging case with guided directions, while the built-in speaker also makes it easier to locate the case. Customers can now personalise the charging case with their individual Memoji.
