Furthermore, the third-generation Airpods may even debut active-noise cancellation, which Apple introduced in Apple Airpods Pro.
Since AirPods 3 may probably be the stripped-down version of Apple Airpods Pro, the company may have another incredible feature to include in the Airpods Pro 2. The new patent-filing reveals that the Cupertino has already started working on the Airpod Pro 2, and has some interesting feature that no other earbuds have.
Airpods Pro 2 will provide the next-generation version of the existing force-control sensors. The new feature for the Airpods Pro 2 will most potentially be the touch and air gestures. The capacitive sensors in the device will help to trigger the air gestures through the touch gestures. The new feature will take the user experience into the next level.
