When Apple ditched the charger adapter from the iPhone’s box, the excuse was – to be an environmental friend. The company says that bundled chargers contribute to electronic waste, as you’re always getting a new charger once you buy a new iPhone, and more chargers are being manufactured for every iPhone box. That is Apple’s justification, but if that is the only real reason, we don’t know. For a company that wants to take care of the environment, the AirPods Pro 2 is very environmentally unfriendly. 

The repair site iFixit disassembled the AirPods Pro 2. Despite their improvements in audio quality and a new charging case, one thing remains: It’s almost impossible to repair these earbuds. Just like their predecessors were.

Try to repair the AirPods Pro 2 and get a pile of electronic waste

IFixit’s teardown of the AirPods Pro 2 shows the internals of the earphones and the charging case. The disassembly confirms that the AirPods Pro 2 is similar to the previous generation. Hence, they’re almost irreparable. The simple process of disassembling the case will damage the earbud. Therefore, it’s impossible to replace the battery by yourself. According to iFixit, the AirPods are the most popular TWS earbuds in the world. However, they’re the least repairable.

In addition, in the lanyard hole of the AirPods Pro 2 case, there is a metal fitting. It is soldered to the Lightning port, consistent with previous CT scans. It may stand as an antenna for the U1 chip or perhaps it’s for alternative use.

Once you dismantle the AirPods Pro 2, you’ll get a bunch of irreparable accessories. Therefore, you’ll have a pile of environmental-unfriendly electronic parts. For that reason, iFixit criticizes Apple’s controversy in its “environmental” speech. It’s quite ironic to see a company that removed the charger from the iPhone boxes to be environmental-friendly but keeps producing accessories that are almost impossible to repair.

When it comes to the features, the Pro 2 is quite an improvement. ANC evolves, there is improved audio quality, longer battery life, Find My Support for Charging Cases. There are also additional small earbud options.
