AirPods Pro (2nd generation) true wireless stereo (TWS) earphones were launched at Apple’s “Far Out” event last year, and the iPhone maker is now updating its second-generation Pro earphones with some new features . Launched three years after the first model, AirPods Pro (2nd generation) feature a new H2 chip with improved noise cancellation and transparency mode compared to its predecessor. In addition to the iOS 17 update rolling out on Monday, Apple is also rolling out new features on its wireless headphones.

Adaptive Audio was announced at WWDC 2023 in June and is the first feature to appear on AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) with the latest iOS 17 update. The company says this mode dynamically combines active noise cancellation (ANC) and transparency mode on the fly, depending on the type of environment the wearer is in. The feature will automatically activate and deactivate based on what they are doing and whether they are indoors or outdoors.

AirPods Pro (2nd generation) now offer a new gesture that lets you pinch the stem of the earbuds to mute or unmute yourself during a call. This feature comes in handy when you’re on a call but your phone is charging and out of reach.

At the same time, Apple also provides a feature called “Personalized Volume,” which uses machine learning technology to set the audio playback level based on your surrounding environment. As part of the latest firmware update, Apple has also improved the ability of AirPods Pro (second generation) headphones to switch between the company’s devices.

Apple also makes it easier for you to have conversations with AirPods Pro (2nd generation) in your ears through a new feature called Conversation Sense. This feature will simultaneously improve the voice quality of the person you are talking to while reducing background/ambient distractions and lowering your own voice. If this works as advertised, manually switching listening modes on AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) should be completely unnecessary.
