According to Bloomberg, a new generation of Apple’s famous earbuds are in development. While not much is known about the devices so far, there are many improvements we’d like to see with the release of the AirPods 2.

Better Controls

The AirPods 2, like their predecessors, will likely be a compact and convenient way to listen to music. Despite being small and unimposing, the current generation of AirPods does have a few ways in which it can be controlled with a simple tap of the finger. In its current iteration, it’s possible to play, pause, and skip tracks while on the go with the press of a button. However, one major drawback of this generation is that you can only assign a couple functions to each AirPod at a time. With the AirPods 2, Apple has a chance to improve upon the current design by giving us both more ways in which we can use the earbuds as well as more “slots” in order to store specific functions. Bloomberg reports that the AirPods 2 will add Siri functionality as well, which is definitely a welcome addition.

Better Audio Quality

While the audio quality of this current generation is generally pretty good, there’s always room for improvement. With the AirPods 2, Apple could potentially refine the acoustics of their device in order to provide top-tier sound that competes with wired headphones.

The AirPods 2 have two things working against them by default: the Bluetooth connection and the fact that they are earbuds. A large part of the reason that people will use the AirPods 2 is due to their easy setup with the iPhone as well as how small and easy they are to transport. If the AirPods 2 sound quality were to improve, it might actually come close to the acoustics provided by high-end wireless headphones.

In their current iteration, the AirPods 2 are great for exercising and casual listening. Kicking it up a notch with a revamp of the internal workings would be a great way to convince people to upgrade.
