Second-Generation AirPods Pro

Certainly not the biggest announcement today next to the flagship products, but the second-generation AirPods Pro do look like a solid update. Contrary to rumours, it does not appear they will support lossless playback, though perhaps the new H2 chip is hiding some secrets to be revealed later.

The headphones also do not have replaceable batteries. I get it, but it is still a bummer that a $250 set of headphones has a more-or-less fixed lifespan based on its most consumable component.
