The special edition AirPods Pro features an adorable emoji to celebrate the Year of the Ox

To celebrate Chinese New Year—which happens to be the Year of the Ox and falls on Friday, February 12—Apple has launched a special edition of its AirPods Pro, featuring a charging case adorned with a cute ox-themed artwork inspired by Apple’s Animoji characters. Depicting a winking baby ox popping out from a larger ox’s head with stars floating around, the unique graphic will also decorate the packaging of the limited-edition earphones in red. Customers can add custom text to their celebratory headphones, or even swap out the ox emoji for an entirely different icon.
