By José Adorno

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is back in 2022 with his first report about the AirPods Pro 2, rumored to launch later this year.

According to Kuo, there’s a lot changing with the upcoming AirPods.

Now, in a note to investors seen by 9to5Mac, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo offers some tidbits about this upcoming product:

We expect Apple to launch AirPods Pro 2 in 4Q22 with new selling points, including a new form factor design, support for Apple Lossless (ALAC) format, and a charging case that can emit a sound for users to track.

We are optimistic about the demand for AirPods Pro 2 and estimate shipments will reach 18–20mn units in 2022.

This is the first time an analyst or leaker predicts that wireless earbuds could feature Lossless support.
