AirPods Pro 2 – the one upgrade I really need to see

The Apple AirPods Pro 2 are facing rather high expectations for wireless earbuds that haven’t even been announced yet. Seriously, we awarded the first-gen pair with a rare 5/5 stars, calling them the ultimate wireless earbuds when we reviewed them … in 2019.

But all the best wireless earbuds have only gotten better in the years since. Battery life improvements, smarter features, spatial audio effects, more support for high-definition audio formats – all sorts of big advancements. This is to say the AirPods Pro 2 need to deliver several exciting upgrades, but there’s one in particular I really hope to see. And it’s one Apple should borrow from one of its top audio competitors.
