Apple Expected Updates In AirPods Pro Lineup For 2024 

The release of Apple Vision Pro has got everyone wanting to see and experience the tech. One of the tests done by early adopters, specifically Appleheads, is to try different versions of AirPods pro lineup to see what works best with them. Unfortunately, AirPods Max don’t sound as immaculate as we expected, mainly because of the incompatibilities that prevent the audio device from keeping up with Vision Pro’s room-sensing abilities.

Thus, we’re left with AirPods versions, and in this area, the AirPods Pro 2 with USB-C emerged as the best. It not only gives you ultraclean sound but also convinces you that it’s part of the conjured Vision Pro realm. This is the case for now.

If you think this discussion is slowly tilting towards AirPods and its future, you guessed it right. 

With Vision Pro requiring more sophisticated audio technology and Apple eyeing more groundbreaking launches before the decade’s end, a drastic improvement must be made. It is only fair not to leave out the audio, a feature that serves one of the most important senses and greatly impacts user  experience.

So here are the top AirPods rumors we got from our insiders.

#1: 3rd Generation AirPods and AirPods Pro Fusio

Last October, news broke out that Gen 2 and Gen 3 AirPods will be discontinued. Two 4th Gen models will replace them, as Apple intends to keep a two-tier market approach, where one is mid-range and an entry-level counterpart is the other.

This new generation of AirPods is alleged to have the combined features of 3rd Gen AirPods and AirPods Pro but with shorter stems. Rumors also say they will have a better fit and some health-tracking sensors.

#2: AirPods Pro Changes

Although not as loud as the gossip about AirPods having some hardware changes, there are plans to revamp the AirPods Pro design. However, it is contested whether it would arrive within the year with all the ambitious details in the blueprint.

Apple will also introduce a hearing aid function for iOS 18, which may be the main feature of AirPods Pro. As we have heard already, studies show that AirPods Pro’s efficiency is nearly at par with that of medical-grade hearing aids. The company might want to pursue this direction without claiming that the new accessory can replace prescription hearing devices in any way. 
situation, leaving consumers to decide which device to purchase.

#3: What About AirPods Max?

The earlier rumors from December last year suggest that there will be new updates to the AirPods Max. However, it won’t be as significant as many wished it to be, with only new colors and the move to USB-C to expect.

Sadly, this was reiterated with a February update when Instant Digital confirmed a sparse update to the AirPods Pro Max, sealing the fate of keeping the old H1 chip. This is definitely not an expansive update and probably a boring year for Apple accessories. All we have is an 
assumption that Vision Pro will have a specialized audio accessory soon, but take it with a grain of salt as no insiders have heard about this from a reliable source.

Thus, brands like Hygadget have enough time to bring something big to the non-Apple accessories for Apple devices market, while the tech giant remains timid about these changes.
