Apple AirPods Pro Year of the Rabbit Special Edition announced
2023 is to be the Year of the Rabbit on the Chinese calendar, and Apple has decided to mark this change in advance with new Special Editions of the AirPods Pro. They follow the tradition of their predecessors with additional distinctive, cutesy graphics super-imposed on the typical blank white packaging and charging case, found just below the indicator LED in the latter case.
These Year of the Rabbit Special Edition earbuds are 2nd-gen AirPods Pro, and as such also come with Apple's latest active noise cancellation (ANC) tech, "personalized" spatial audio and a new lanyard bracket for its MagSafe-compatible case.
The AirPods Pro Year of the Rabbit Special Edition are only available on China's version of the Apple Store, priced at 1,899 yuan (~US$275) - the same as standard AirPods Pro 2 with a wireless charging-capable case on the same platform., although Apple has not specified how long they may be available for.
Meanwhile, they remain at US$249 on apple.com or via channels such as Best Buy in the US.
