If you haven’t already gotten your hands on the AirPods Pro (2nd generation), maybe now’s the perfect time to do so.
I’ve personally been using the AirPods Pro (2nd generation) since its launch last year – but the new updates coming to the new AirPods Pro are pretty intuitive, not to mention the USB-C charging capability now. New features are now available on the AirPods Pro (2nd gen) with iOS 17 – let’s deep dive.
For a Dynamic Listening Experience – Adaptive Audio
With the AirPods Pro (2nd gen), you can easily tap on both Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency mode to seamlessly switch modes to listen to your favourite podcasts / music based on your surroundings. The AirPods Pro (2nd gen) is powered by H2 Apple silicon and Adaptive Audio helps you navigate your daily life as you change environments from your daily commute, to work, to cooking dinner when you reach home with added ease and convenience.
Perfect to Customise Your Audio Experience – Personalised Volume
Fine-tune your audio experience to another level with Personalised Volume, that leverages machine learning of your listening preferences over time, alongside all the changes you go through in your daily life.
For the Ones Listening to Music at Work – Conversation Awareness
I usually listen to podcasts at work (I find it easier to focus when my favourite podcaster is yakking away in my ears, strange, I know), and people tend to come up to me at my desk for adhoc discussions. With AirPods Pro (2nd gen), once I start speaking, Conversation Awareness will automatically lower my audio volume and enhance the voices of the people around me – allowing me to take multitasking to another level.
For Ease of Usage – Touch Control
Apart from pressing the stem of the AirPods Pro (2nd gen) to mute or unmute myself on calls, press and hold to switch between ANC and Transparency modes, swipe up and down to adjust the volume – I can also easily access all of the AirPods features directly on my iPhone Settings.
If you didn’t already know, you can easily and automatically switch between Apple devices – you can go from listening to music on your iPhone, to taking an urgent work call on your MacBook Pro – without missing a beat. All made faster and more seamless, with the H2 chip.
The AirPods Pro (2nd gen) and charging case are also now dust, sweat, and water resistant (IP54) – it was previously only water and sweat resistant!
For Convenient Charging – USB-C
With the latest update to the connector on the iPhone 15 lineup, I can now charge my AirPods Pro (2nd gen) with a USB-C cable – and what’s better? The USB-C connector on AirPods Pro (2nd gen) is the same as my iPhone 15 Pro – allowing me to use my iPhone 15 Pro to directly charge my AirPods Pro case when I run out of battery while I’m on the go!
Where to Purchase
AirPods Pro (2nd generation) with MagSafe Charging Case (USB-C) is now available on Apple Store from S$362.35.
