The Apple AirPods Pro are one of the most popular noise-canceling wireless earbuds on the market. However, Apple might phase them out in the coming months, at least according to the rumors. Ming-Chi Kuo stated in a tweet that Apple is preparing to discontinue the AirPods Pro to create room for the next-generation AirPods Pro 2; AirPods Pro 2 will debut in the second quarter of 2022, according to Kuo. That indicates the next generation of Apple wireless earphones could arrive in June.

According to Kuo, the decision to discontinue the two-and-a-half-year-old truly wireless earbuds was based on the AirPods 3’s dismal sales. Apple is said to have ascribed this to its decision to keep the AirPods 2 on the market when the third-generation AirPods were released in 2021.
When the AirPods 3 were released, Apple also gave the AirPods 2 a price decrease; it could explain why the demand for the newer headphones hasn’t been as strong as Apple had hoped. As a result, Apple’s third-generation AirPods orders from suppliers would be reduced by at least 30% in the second and third quarters of this year.

Apple AirPods 3 sales were lower than expected

Apple must have been discouraged by lower-than-expected sales. The AirPods 3 are a superior pair of truly wireless earbuds in practically every way than their predecessors. They offer higher sound quality, support for Spatial Audio, and better connectivity with Apple’s larger network. However, all of that was not enough to spur the kind of sales Apple saw with the AirPods 2. Plus, there are so many true wireless earbuds to select from these days; this could be a hint that Apple’s market dominance is fading.
