Apple has now extended its repair program for the AirPods Pro, offering free repairs or replacements for earbuds that have issues with noise cancellation or static.
In addition to earlier details, the Apple website now notes that their repair and replacement program covers affected AirPods Pro for three years after their first retail sale, rather than two. The page appears to have been updated at the beginning of October.
Originally introduced in October 2020, AirPods Pro bought at launch (2019) should now be covered right up until October 2022. The Apple website reads, “Crackling or static sounds that increase in loud environments, with exercise or while talking on the phone. Active Noise Cancellation not working as expected, such as a loss of bass sound, or an increase in background sounds, such as street or airplane noise.”
So, if you are facing these issues with your AirPod Pros, Apple says you should contact its support team or an Apple Authorized Service Provider, or else make an appointment at an Apple Store.
