iFixit Publishes AirPods Pro 2 Teardown [VIDEO]
Yesterday, Lumafield shared a nondestructive teardown of the AirPods Pro 2 using a Neptune industrial CT scanner, and compared it to the first-generation AirPods Pro.
The most interesting finding was the new metal eyelet on the side of the case. Apple says it’s for a lanyard, but it seems to serve as an antenna to support improved “Find My” tracking.
Now, we have a more conventional AirPods Pro 2 teardown and looks like they are still the most unfixable.
“With the AirPods Pro 2, the flagship line gets a boost, in all arenas, apparently, except the environment,” notes iFixit. “Personalized spatial audio can give you a great sound experience, but can it mute the guilt from wearing unrepairable future-e-waste.”
With its new pods, could Apple finally be thinking different? Watch the following teardown video and find out.
