Apple announced the second generation of AirPods on March 20, 2019. They are the same design as the first generation but have updated features.

They include an H1 processor which supports hands-free “Hey Siri” and Bluetooth 5 connectivity. Apple also claims 50% more talk time and faster device connection times. The “Announce Messages with Siri” feature was added in iOS 13.2, which allows the user to dictate text messages to Siri.

Second-generation AirPods can be purchased with the same charging case as the first generation or for an additional price bundled with the Wireless Charging Case, which can be used with Qi chargers. The Wireless Charging Case can be purchased separately and is compatible with first-generation AirPods. It moves the charging indicator LED to the exterior of the case.

The Wireless Charging Case was initially announced in September 2017 alongside the AirPower charging mat but was delayed by AirPower’s protracted development and eventual cancellation.

The second-generation AirPods remained on sale with a price cut following the release of the third generation in October 2021, but are now only available with the lightning charging case.

The model numbers for the second-generation AirPods are A2032 and A2031.
