"Apple announced AirPods Pro on October 28, 2019, and released them two days later on October 30, 2019.They include features of standard AirPods, such as a microphone that filters out background noise, accelerometers and optical sensors that can detect presses on the stem and in-ear placement, and automatic pausing when they are taken out of the ears. Control by tapping is replaced by pressing a force sensor on the stems. They are rated IPX4 for water resistance.The AirPods Pro use the same H1 chip found in second generation AirPods that supports hands-free ""Hey Siri"". They have active noise cancellation, accomplished by microphones detecting outside sound and speakers producing precisely opposite ""anti-noise"". Active noise cancellation can be turned off or switched to ""transparency mode"" that helps users hear surroundings. Noise cancellation modes can also be switched in iOS or by pinching the stems of the AirPods using a new ""force sensor"".Battery life is equal to the 2nd generation AirPods at five hours, but noise cancellation or transparency mode reduce it to 4.5 hours due to the extra processing. The charging case advertises the same 24 hours of total listening time as the standard AirPods case. It also features Qi standard wireless charging compatibility. Like AirPods, AirPods Pro have received criticism for their battery life.AirPods Pro comes with three sizes of silicone tips. There is a software test in iOS called the Ear Tip Fit Test that ""[checks] the fit of your AirPods ear tips to determine which size provides the best seal and acoustic performance"" to ensure a correct fit, as well as a feature called ""Adaptive EQ"" which automatically adjusts the frequency contour, claimed to better match the wearer's ear shape. Starting in early 2020, Apple started selling tip replacements for AirPods Pro on their website.Support for AirPods Pro was added in iOS 13.2, watchOS 6.1, tvOS 13.2, and macOS Catalina 10.15.1. They are compatible with any device that supports Bluetooth, including Windows and Android devices, although certain features such as automatic switching between devices are only available on Apple devices using its iCloud service.With iOS 14 and iPadOS 14, Apple added a spatial audio mode designed to simulate 5.1 surround sound. Supported apps include the Apple TV app, Disney+ and HBO Max. Spatial audio requires an iPhone or iPad with an Apple A10 processor or newer."
