In 2021 Apple is expected to launch the second-generation of the AirPods Pro.
New alleged images of the upcoming earbuds’ internal hardware indicate that the next generation of AirPods Pro will come in two different sizes. This leak was shared by Mr-white (@laobaiTD) and reported by MacRumors.

Previous rumours from Bloomberg indicated that AirPods Pro’s second-generation would come in a more compact design, removing the short stem from the bottom. This means that the AirPods Pro could sport a more rounded shape, similar to Samsung’s earbuds. However, reports indicate that Apple is struggling to eliminate the stem, so that might not happen.
Mr-White says the new AirPods Pro will still sport a W2 chip, but further details are unclear. The AirPods Pro’s currently sport an H2, the successor to the W1, so this might be what the leaker is talking about.
It’s worth noting that this is only a rumour, so it should be taken with a grain of salt. MacRumors indicates that Mr-white has shared accurate Apple leaks in the past, but they’re not always correct.
