Earlier this month, Apple filed for the Bluetooth v5.3 host subsystem on Bluetooth SIG for its future products. This could indicate that the Cupertino-based tech giant is in the process of offering LE Audio support for its AirPods Pro 2022 or AirPods Pro 2. LE Audio is expected to bring enhanced wireless audio streaming capabilities to Apple’s TWS earphones.
However, a MacRumors report suggests that the filing actually refers to Bluetooth v5.2 instead of Bluetooth v5.3 on the listing. Apparently, Apple usually files one version higher than the version it intends to include in its products. Case in point, the Beats Studio Buds support Bluetooth v5.2, but were listed with Bluetooth v5.3 on the Bluetooth certification website. Many iPads and iPhones came out of production with Bluetooth v5.0 as opposed to v5.1 suggested by the Bluetooth database.
But fret not, as Bluetooth v5.2 can also enable LE Audio in the upcoming Apple AirPods Pro. According to a report by The Verge, LE Audio is a low-energy feature which could bring improved battery efficiency, enhanced audio quality, and the ability to connect two pairs of AirPods to one device. Furthermore, the left and right earbuds can have their individual Bluetooth connection to the device for enhanced audio synchronisation.
