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

AirPods Pro 2 Battery Widget always shows charging

AirPods Pro 2 are the only AirPods that currently have a silicon chip unrelated to 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 up) to precisely track and communicate with other U1 equipped devices. This makes for some interesting and new statuses that you see on your iPhone when it comes to understanding the battery conditions of your new AirPods Pro 2.

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

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

In every model of AirPods, the case constantly charges them to keep them at 100%. They (AirPods Pro 2nd gen) always show their charge on your battery widget because they have the new U1 chip unlike the older generation AirPods

Missing battery percentage for AirPods case or case charge showing as 0%

This is another problem with some history. Many users find that the battery percentage information for their AirPods is missing. There is a difference in behavior here between AirPods Pro 2 and older AirPods.AirPods Case Charging Shows 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 shows the AirPods case battery as 0% when you have the AirPods in your ears.

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

The other issue after rolling out iOS 16.2 shows you two different battery percentages for your AirPods case. The battery of the charging case on the widget shows a different number than the number on your iPhone screen when you pop up the AirPods case.

This is a known bug. One solution to this is to put the AirPods back in the case and close it. Then unlock your phone and then just 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’s battery drains at a faster rate

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 from other reports.

Apparently, the FindMy module appears to be the contributing factor to this. One solution if you have this problem with your AirPods Pro 2 charging case is to temporarily remove the AirPods Pro from your Find My app device list.

  • Open the Find Me app on your iPhoneOpen device list on Find My app on your iPhone
  • Tap on the AirPods Pro and scroll down to the bottom of the screen
  • Remove AirPods Pro from the Find My Devices list (this causes them to disconnect from your phone as well)AirPods case loses charge
  • Then open the case of your AirPods Pro as usual
  • Reconnect the AirPods Pro

This should stop the battery draining problem on the case, but the risk is that if you misplace the case, you will have a hard time locating it.
