According to a report from 52Audio, the AirPods Pro (2nd Generation) are going to feature a H1 SoC that supports self-adaptive active noise cancellation and an improved Find My function. The new earphones from Apple can feature heart rate detection and a USB Type-C port for fast charging and better compatibility. The earphones are also expected to come with hearing aid functionality. This feature can allow wearer with hearing problems use their earphones like a hearing aid.

The report added that heart rate detection on the AirPods Pro (2nd Generation) will collect and analyse the wearer's inner-ear data to monitor body temperature along with the heart rate monitoring. The earphones are said to feature similar acoustic characteristics like that of AirPods (3rd Generation) that will support self-adaptive equalisation, spatial audio for dynamic head tracking, and audio sharing.

The renders shared by the publication show that the charging case of the earphones will feature a USB Type-C port that has multiple opening on both its sides. The two larger openings on the right side can be seen protected by a metal piece. The charging case is expected to come with a speaker at the bottom that can play a sound itself and will work with the Find My application.
