Last Updated on: 24th September 2022, 10:22 pm
Apple has confirmed that the old AirPods Pro is incompatible with the new 2nd-gen AirPods Pro.
Apple has released a statement confirming that the new AirPods Pro is incompatible with the older AirPods Pro. This incompatibility is likely due to the denser mesh on the ear tips of the first-generation model.
If you are using the original AirPods Pro, then you are likely aware that they are not compatible with the new 2nd-gen AirPods Pro. This was confirmed by Apple themselves in a recent support document.
If you want to upgrade to the newer models, you may be disappointed to hear that the original AirPods Pro is no longer compatible. This means that you will not be able to use the advanced features of the 2nd-gen AirPods Pro, such as wireless charging and noise canceling.
If you want to purchase a set of AirPods Pro, we recommend purchasing the newer models instead. The original AirPods Pro is no longer supported.
Ear Tip Fit Test
Moreover, apple also provided Ear Tip Fit Test, if you you’re not sure about the fit.
If you have an older AirPods Pro and are planning to upgrade to the new AirPods Pro, you may find that the two devices are not compatible. The Ear Tip Fit Test can help determine if you’re getting the best possible sound quality and noise cancellation.
Choose a comfortable fit with a good seal, and then follow the instructions in the Ear Tip Fit Test to confirm that your old AirPods Pro is compatible with the new AirPods Pro.
With your AirPods Pro in your ears and connected to your iPhone or iPad, go to Settings > Bluetooth.
- Tap the More Info button next to your AirPods in the list of devices.
- Tap Ear Tip Fit Test. If you don’t see the Ear Tip Fit Test, make sure that you have iOS or iPadOS 13.2 or later.
- Tap Continue, then tap the Play button.
If the test suggests adjusting or trying a different ear tip, try adjusting your AirPods Pro and testing again. If that doesn’t work, try a different size in each ear. You might need different sizes for your left and right ears.
