Apple AirPods Pro 2 features and price in Nigeria: The second-generation AirPods Pro looks just like the original model but brings some incremental upgrades for the same price. You’ll still be able to find them at the regular retail price of 150,000 Naira in Nigeria ($249 or AU$399).
The Apple AirPods Pro 2, referred to by Apple as the new AirPods Pro (2nd Generation) has been unveiled, and will be priced at 150,000 Naira / $249 / £249 / AU$399 when they go on sale later this month. They were announced at Apple’s September event alongside the new series of Apple Watches and contain many new features thanks to the inclusion of the new Apple H2 wireless chip.
Among the highlights of the new true wireless noise-cancelling earbuds is the ability to take a picture of your ears using the TrueDepth camera on the iPhone to create a profile for personalized spatial audio, as well as an advanced computational audio algorithm that eliminates twice as much noise as the original AirPods Pro.
Smaller updates include a bump up in battery life for six hours on a single charge, near smaller eartips included in the box and a speaker on the case that will help you track it down should you lose them.

New Apple AirPods Pro 2 release date
The new AirPods Pro (2nd Generation) are available to order starting on Friday, September 9 and will be available worldwide on Friday, September 23. It’s been almost three years since the launch of the original Apple AirPods Pro, so the new updated model is coming at a reasonable time.
New AirPods Pro 2 (2022) features
1. Improved Sound Quality and ANC
Thanks to its latest H2 chip, a new low-distortion audio driver, and a custom amplifier, the second-gen AirPods Pro delivers notably better sound quality and Active Noise Cancellation (ANC).
Apple claims the new earbuds cancel up to twice the amount of noise compared to the outgoing model. The bass is also richer, with a wider sound stage that helps improve the overall clarity.
2. Better In-Ear Fit
What’s the point of great sound quality if the earbuds keep falling from your ears? It looks like the company has heard some of your complaints, as the new AirPods Pro comes with an additional set of XS-sized ear tips to help provide a better in-ear fit for people with small ear canals.
This will allow the earbuds to passively block more noise, indirectly boosting the ANC performance and sound quality. The better fit will also help if you use the AirPods Pro to help hear conversations better.
3. Adaptive Transparency
The second-generation AirPods Pro takes the existing Transparency mode to the next level with Adaptive Transparency. Thanks to the powerful new H2 chip, the earbuds can dynamically reduce the harsh environment noise.
So, you can still stay aware of your surroundings or continue a conversation without dealing with harsh construction or traffic noises.
4. New Charging Case With Find My Integration
The new charging case of the second-generation AirPods Pro is dust and water-resistant, just like the earbuds. There’s a lanyard loop, too, for extra convenience. If you order the AirPods Pro 2 online through the Apple Store, you can even engrave your favourite Memoji on the charging case.
Another highlight of the new charging case is Find My integration and a built-in speaker. If you have an iPhone with a U1 chip, you can use the Precision Finding feature in the Find My app to get the exact location of the AirPods Pro. And the built-in speaker on the charging case will play a loud tone so that you can locate it quickly.
5. Longer Battery Life
Despite the better sound quality and ANC, Apple claims the AirPods Pro 2 can last 1.5 hours longer than the outgoing model. With ANC enabled, the earbuds can provide up to six hours of music playback. The charging case can further extend this to up to 30 hours.
On top of that, charging the new AirPods Pro is a lot more convenient. You can top up the carrying case using your Apple Watch’s Magnetic puck or a third-party Qi-certified charger. This will make charging your AirPods notably less of a headache when travelling. The case also continues to support MagSafe charging for added convenience.
6. Touch Control
Unlike the original AirPods Pro, you don’t need to press the stem to adjust the music playback or volume. You get touch controls on the AirPods Pro 2. This allows you to adjust the volume with a light swipe up or down. And to accept phone calls or control music playback, you need to press the stem lightly.
Apple has also upgraded the skin detection sensor, so the earbuds will more accurately detect when to resume or stop music playback.
