Apple wanted to call the AirPods Pro ‘Extreme’ and I’m extremely glad they didn’t

Have you ever seen the meme of Steve Buscemi, a grown adult, donning teen skate wear and saying “how do you do, fellow kids?”? Because a new report suggests that Apple narrowly avoided a similarly cringe-worthy attempt to be down with the kids. Rather than call its best wireless earbuds the AirPods Pro, it turns out that at least some of the Apple execs wanted to brand them AirPods Extreme instead.

That was a very bad idea and Apple’s employees – who I suspect were a lot younger than the person or people who thought “extreme” was a good word – quickly objected. According to MacRumors, there were so many objections that Apple quickly changed its mind about the name of the best AirPods.
