Apple’s AirPods became a staple of the Apple device ecosystem. The company released the original AirPods back in 2016, and the true-wireless earbuds were a hit ever since.

Apple released the AirPods Pro in 2019, and then it was time for the next version, the AirPods Pro 2.

Prior to their release, the company hadn’t announced anything regarding the next iteration of its Pro earbuds, but there was a lot of speculation.

Sources close to the company said the new AirPods Pro 2 would feature an updated stemless design and new sensors for fitness tracking. But when did we see the new earbuds?

When did the AirPods Pro 2 come out?

Short Answer: September, 2022.

The company announced the AirPods Pro 2 on September 7, 2022, and they were available for order online and in the Apple Store app starting Friday, September 9, with availability in stores from September 23, 2022.

The AirPods Pro 2 did ditch the stem altogether in favor of a new shape that resembled the Beats Fit Pro. The new earbuds did feature an upgraded chip for faster, better connections, as well.

Additionally, Apple amped up many of the features users loved about the original, and while they weren’t perfect, they offered some of the best noise cancellation and improved audio.

Of course, prior to their release, this was all speculation. But the rumors proved accurate, and the AirPods Pro 2 launched with the expected new design and features.
