Apple's Latest AirPods Pro 2 Teardown Shows Internals, Repairability, and Much More
iFixit's latest teardown of the AirPods Pro 2 offers a look at the internals of the earbuds as well as the charging case. The teardown confirms that the AirPods Pro remains unrepairable and damages the case when trying to access the internal components. Since the case breaks if you try to open it up, battery replacements are impossible for the most part.
iFixit says that AirPods are the most popular earbuds in the world but also the most unfixable. It also mentions that "With the AirPods Pro 2, the flagship line gets a boost, in all arenas, apparently, except the environment." The metal insert on the case for the lanyard is welded to the Lightning connector which is quite peculiar. It was recently discovered that the lanyard insert could potentially double as an antenna for the U! chip that allows for Find My support. You can check out the teardown video below for more details.
Take note that the AirPods Pro 2 is quite similar to its predecessor. If you are interested, the AirPods Pro 2 is available for $249 in the United States and you can pre-order from Apple's official website. This is all there is to it, folks.

We will share more details on the AirPods Pro 2 teardown as soon as we have further details on the subject.
