- Support for older Macs: Even-though AirPods Pro connects with older MacBook Pro’s like 2012 models, the features are limited and lack auto connectivity feature. So, while I watch movie or videos in MacBook Pro and suddenly, I get a call on my iPhone, the AirPods Pro does not switch to my iPhone automatically. I understand that I can take calls in my Mac through same Wi-Fi network and sometimes when I attend call through Mac, the call quality was poor and there was huge delay in audio.
- Unwanted Noise-cancellation feature while taking calls: Noise cancellation feature in AirPods Pro was one of the unique and stand-alone option among other similar headphones. However, while taking calls with noise cancellation feature was turned on, your voice might be too loud without knowing how loud your voice was and sometimes the voice seems to be too low for the person in other end of the call. So, AirPods Pro should have an in-built option to turn-off noise cancellation feature while taking phone calls.
- Lack of spatial audio content and limited availability: AirPods Pro support spatial audio and Apple demonstrated the feature using Apple TV+. However, it has been more than a year since the feature was launched and the spatial audio option was limited only to Apple TV+ till now. There were rumours that other OTT platforms would also adopt spatial audio, and none has adopted for a long time. Due to this, I have not been using spatial audio feature in Airpods Pro and at time forget that such feature exists.
