AirPods To Get New Exciting Features: Auto-Switching & Spatial Audio

With the wave of announcements that came our way from this year’s WWDC, Apple unveiled new features and updates for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Macbook and AirPods. Highlighting the new updates for AirPods, both AirPods Pro and AirPods (2nd Gen) will get the automatic-switching feature, while only AirPods Pro is getting spatial audio feature.

The auto-switching feature allows the users to switch their AirPods between Apple devices without the need to reconnect. This is done by linking the AirPods with the user’s icloud account. Say, you are watching a movie on your MacBook and you get a call, once you take the call, the AirPod will automatically switch to your iPhone without any hassle and then automatically switch back to your movie on MacBook after the call ends. Similarly, the user can switch between any Apple device without actually changing any of the bluetooth settings. The automatic switching works by detecting what the user is using the iCloud linked devices for and decides whether they will need the AirPods for performing the task. How convenient is that? The update will also come to Powerbeats, Powerbeats Pro and Beats Solo Pro. Read More
