Apple is planning to unveil second generation AirPods Pro wireless earbuds alongside its new iPhone 14 models, according to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman.

The AirPods and Apple Watch are the top performers within the company’s Wearables, Home and Accessories category, which generates about 10% of its revenue (the Apple TV and HomePod are in the same segment, but updates to those products aren’t coming until later). That is probably why Apple is releasing upgrades for the iPhone and its top two accessories simultaneously. The new AirPods Pro will update a model that first went on sale in October 2019. I reported last year that new AirPods Pro would arrive in 2022, and now I’m told that Wednesday will be their big unveiling.

Rumors from earlier this year suggest that AirPods Pro 2 could feature an H1 chip, heart rate detection, USB-C, hearing aid functionality, and more. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has predicted that the new earbuds will feature a new form factor design, support for Apple Lossless (ALAC) format, and a charging case that can emit a sound for users to track.

Apple is set to unveil its new iPhone 14, 'iPhone 14 Plus', iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max at an upcoming 'Far Out' special event on September 7. Please download the iClarified app or follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and RSS for full event coverage.

Notably, the current generation AirPods Pro are on sale for $70 off today.
