How do I know if my AirPods Pro is Gen 2?

Answered by James Kissner

To determine if your AirPods Pro are Gen 2, you can follow these steps:

1. Go to the Settings menu on your iPhone or iPad.
2. Scroll down and tap on Bluetooth.
3. Look for your AirPods Pro in the list of available devices. It might be listed as something like “John’s AirPods Pro” or “AirPods Pro.”
4. Once you find your AirPods Pro, tap on the “i” icon or the More Info button next to it. This will take you to the device details page.

On this page, you will find information about your AirPods Pro, including the model number. The model number for Gen 2 AirPods Pro is typically A2389 or A2390. You may see this information listed under the “Model” or “Model Number” section.

If you are unable to find the model number on this page, you can also check the physical characteristics of your AirPods Pro. Gen 2 AirPods Pro have a few distinct features:

1. The charging case has a LED light on the front, which indicates the charging status.
2. The hinge on the charging case is slightly shorter and wider compared to the first-generation AirPods Pro.
3. The text on the back of the charging case should include the model number as well.

It’s worth noting that if you purchased your AirPods Pro recently, they are more likely to be Gen 2. However, if you’re uncertain about the generation, checking the model number or comparing the physical characteristics can provide a definitive answer.

Remember, if you don’t have your AirPods Pro connected to your device, you can still check the model number on the back of the charging case. The model number is usually printed in small text near the bottom.

I hope this helps you determine if your AirPods Pro are Gen 2 or not. If you have any further questions, feel free to ask!
