AirPods Pro 2 possible launch Q3 2022
It’s been two years since Apple introduced the AirPods Pro. Earlier rumors from Apple experts such as analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that the “AirPods Pro 2” should be released in early 2022. But there were always further indications that the corona crisis meant that Apple’s suppliers and contract manufacturers could not keep to their previous plans.
Apple has not communicated much publicly about this so far, but it has already become clear how difficult it has become to procure parts.
Notice from the supply chain
The Twitter user “FrontTron” has now only posted a changed time frame, the only detail of which is the change to the third quarter. He did not write about where this information came from. In addition, it has to be said that “FrontTron” has so far been better known for Samsung leaks and has had a bad “track record” with Apple leaks. However, since the focus is now on contract manufacturers in Asia, the information could be accurate, but this cannot be confirmed. “FrontTron” reported to MacRumors that its source comes directly from the supply chain.
