In this short article, we take a look at the battery widget features associated with the AirPods Pro Gen 2 and highlight some of the differences between this new model and the previous generation AirPods.

AirPods Pro 2 battery widget still shows charge

The AirPods Pro 2 are the only AirPods that currently feature a silicon chip that is not associated with audio processing. The Ultra Wideband or “UWB” U1 is a specialized piece of Apple’s proprietary silicon that allows recent iPhone models (iPhone 11 and later) to locate and to communicate with other devices equipped with U1. This creates some interesting and new statuses that you see on your iPhone when it comes to understanding the battery status of your new AirPods Pro 2.

Even when your earbuds are in the case fully charged, your iPhone’s battery widget shows your AirPods Pro 2 at 100% with a charging indicator.

If you are a new AirPods Pro 2 user, please note that the indicator above does not mean that your AirPods Pro 2 are continuously charging. In fact, flashing green actually means your headphones are fully charged and staying that way. When you see a white flash instead of the flashing green sign, it indicates that your AirPods Pro 2 is charging.

In each model of AirPods, the case constantly charges them to keep them at 100%. They (AirPods Pro 2nd Gen) still show their charge on your battery widget because they have the new U1 chip as opposed to older AirPods

Battery percentage missing for AirPods case or case charging showing 0%

This is another problem with a bit of history. Many users find that the battery percentage information is missing for their AirPods. There is a difference in behavior here between AirPods Pro 2 and older AirPods.AirPods case charge showing 0%

You can’t see the case battery on AirPods (except AirPods Pro Gen2) without an AirPod in the case (or both) and the case open.

There is a known bug in the current iOS system that indicates the AirPods case battery is at 0% when you have the AirPods in your ears.

If you’re having trouble with the battery percentage of your AirPods or AirPods case due to software bugs, be sure to see reset your AirPods and AirPods Pro. Many users report that a quick reset fixes this problem.

The other issue following the iOS 16.2 rollout shows you two different battery percentages for your AirPods case. The charging case battery on the widget shows a different number than on your iPhone screen when you open the AirPods case.

This is a known bug. A workaround is to put the AirPods back in the case and close it. Next, unlock your phone and then open the case again. This syncs the battery percentage specs on the widget with what you see at the bottom of your iPhone screen.

AirPods Pro charging case battery drains faster

Some AirPods Pro Gen 2 users have noticed that their charging case seems to lose battery charge at a faster rate than their older AirPods. This is again a known software bug from what we have read in other reports.

Apparently, the FindMy module seems to be the contributing factor for this. A workaround if you are having this issue with your AirPods Pro 2 charging case is to temporarily remove the AirPods Pro from your Find my app device list.

  • Open the Find My app on your iPhoneOpen the device list on Find My App on your iPhone
  • Tap AirPods Pro and scroll down the screen
  • Remove the AirPods Pro from the Find my App device list (this also unlinks them from your phone)AirPods Case Loss Charge
  • Next, open your AirPods Pro case as you normally would
  • Re-pair AirPods Pro

This should stop the battery drain problem on the case, but the risk is that if you misplace the case, you’ll have trouble locating it.
