The Apple H2 was introduced in September 2022. This Apple silicon supports Bluetooth 5.3 and is featured in the AirPods Pro (2nd generation) launched the same year. The chip uses adaptation algorithms to quickly process sound, rendering audio for your specific ear shape in real time.

Spatial Audio with dynamic head tracking can create an immersive sound environment when listening to supported content. This means that shows, movies, music, and even FaceTime calls can deliver a sensation that sound surrounds the listener. Spatial Audio and dynamic head tracking can be toggled independently for the best experience.
Active Noise Cancellation and Adaptive Transparency technologies help to manage external sounds when wearing AirPods. Outward-facing microphones detect external sounds, which are cancelled out with anti-noise. Transparency mode can be used to listen to sounds outside of the AirPods, letting outside noise into your ear.
The second generation AirPods Pro features swipe gestures that make it possible to change volume levels via touch sensors on the earphone stems. By default, swiping up or down on the AirPods raises or lowers the volume.
