Last month, Apple unveiled the iPhone 14 lineup along with the second-generation AirPods Pro 2. In addition to an increase in the anticipated battery life of the AirPods Pro, Apple mentioned improvements to sound quality, noise cancellation, and passthrough sound in the new model. We are now aware of the precise amount of additional battery capacity available thanks to a 3C certification.
The individual AirPods’ capacity has increased by 15%. As opposed to the 43.24 mAh battery in the first generation, each one now has a 49.7 mAh battery. There was not a significant increase in the capacity of the charging case. The battery saw a small increase of 4 mAh to 523 mAh in the case and now supports MagSafe magnetic charging.
Compared to the first-generation AirPods Pro’s 4.5 hours of battery life on a single charge, the second-generation model offers an additional hour and a half of endurance (6 hours) when using noise cancellation. The new AirPods Pro is said to last 30 hours overall with noise cancellation turned on when used with the charging case. The H2 chip and skin-detection sensors, along with the larger batteries in the Pods, contribute to the new model’s improved battery efficiency.
