The second-generation AirPods Pro will reportedly be introduced at Apple’s upcoming “Far Out” event.

According to Engadget, Mark Gurman shared via his Power On newsletter that the September 7 event will mark the earphones’ unveiling after previously stating that the new version will arrive in 2022. “The new AirPods Pro will update a model that first went on sale in October 2019,” he wrote. He adds that since the AirPods and Apple Watch are Apple‘s best-performing items in the Wearables, Home and Accessories category, it makes sense for the tech giant to release upgrades for the iPhones and its two top-selling accessories.

Rumors circulating the next-gen AirPods Pro claim that the earphone will lose its stems and feature in-ear wingtips instead in order to have a more form-fitting aesthetic. Other reports state that the charging case will maintain the same 21mm thickness but will be wider and taller, while the AirPods Pro itself will arrive with Apple’s next version of the H1 chip, support lossless audio and have a new fitness tracking feature.

Elsewhere in tech, Leica is dropping its first ever 4K projector in 2023.
