Over the past few months, there have been rumors about this year's model gaining the ability to determine a wearer's heart rate or body temperature. I'm told that neither feature is likely to arrive in the 2022 upgrade, though both enhancements have been explored inside the company and could arrive one day.
The rumors being referred to were shared in a recent post from 52audio. The site posted alleged renders of the new AirPods Pro alongside with an expected feature list that included an H1 chip, heart rate detection, USB-C, hearing aid functionality, and more.
We're expecting Apple to unveil the new earbuds alongside the iPhone 14 this fall. Please download the iClarified app or follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and RSS for more updates.
