AirPods Pro 2 is said to have an improved H1 chip, Find My, heart rate detection, USB-C and more

While previous rumors have suggested that the upcoming second-gen AirPods Pro will feature a built-in heart rate and body temperature sensor, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has expressed doubts that these rumors will prove to be true, saying instead that such a feature is unlikely to be coming any time soon.

“There have been rumors in recent months that this year’s model will gain the ability to determine a wearer’s heart rate or body temperature. I’ve been told that neither feature is likely to arrive in the 2022 upgrade,” Gurman writes in his latest Power-On newsletter. Gurman adds that both features have been researched within Apple and may one day arrive.

A rumor circulated just last month 52audio said the ‌AirPods Pro‌ 2 would be able to measure heart rate and body temperature in the ear. The same report stated that the “AirPods Pro” 2 would feature USB-C, an updated H1 chip and “Find My” functionality. It remains to be seen whether other aspects of the report will prove accurate.

Apple hasn’t given the “AirPods Pro” any updates since their launch in 2019, other than a new MagSafe charging case last fall. Apple is widely expected to announce a new version of the “AirPods Pro” later this year, possibly around the time the iPhone 14 and new Apple Watch models launch this fall.
