AirPods Pro on the other hand... I've had to replace three individual AirPods, plus one case under warranty. And I'm about to go in and have them replace another AirPod. AppleCare runs out in November. The race is on between tossing these or buying a new generation.I’m a data analyst for an insurance company and can confirm they probably have some good data on increased reliability to be able to price this lower. Either that or the costs of repair are much lower. Doubt Apple would reduce their margin on such a product. Insurance underwriters have target loss ratios, in which insurance products are priced to match. If products make too much profit they can attract the attention of regulators, such as the FCA in the UK.
