Previous rumours suggested among the news list of the AirPods Pro 2 also has sensors for monitoring heart rate and body temperature respectively. However, the latest news coming from a source believed to be more than reliable puts everything into question.

Mark Gurman, a well-known expert in the Apple universe and a Bloomberg signature, has recently expressed his doubts about the rumours concerning the two aforementioned technologies. It is therefore likely that they are not around the corner, as hypothesised (and hoped for) by many.

AirPods Pro 2, Gurman speaks

Below are Gurman’s words on the AirPods Pro 2, extrapolated from the latest “issue” of his Power On newsletter.

Over the past few months, rumors have been circulating about this year’s [AirPods Pro] model and its ability to measure body temperature or heart rate. I have been told that neither of the two features will probably arrive with the upgrade scheduled for 2022.

A few weeks ago, a rumour launched by 52Audio tried to describe the new made-in-Cupertino wireless earphones coming to their debut. There was talk of a USB-C port (instead of Lightning), a processor update, features related to the Dov’è network and – above all – of the two sensors at the centre of Gurman’s denial.

Apple is expected to unveil the AirPods Pro 2 later this year.
