AirPods Pro update brings theater quality 3D audio

Share

Apple's new AirPods will likely borrow a few AirPods Pro features, including improved sound quality and noise cancellation functionality.

The Tim Cook-led company has an inherent advantage over smartwatch companies when it comes to tracking a user's digital health - its device ecosystem. He cites stock clearance efforts and Apple's recent back to school deal, which offered AirPods as a free gift with other eligible devices, as the reason why Apple won't have a problem clearing space for the new generation of AirPods.

A forthcoming update to AirPods and AirPods Pro will allow them to automatically switch between devices, without you needing to hit a button.

After sharing details about the first Macs to switch to Apple Silicon, renowned TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple will launch the third-generation of AirPods in the first half of 2021. So for example, if you have an iPhone, an iPad and a Macbook, the Airpods will automatically switch between devices depending on which one you are now using. And when you move to your MacBook for video calls, it will also seamlessly witch the audio to your laptop.

That 12-point advantage is statistically significant, and up from Biden's 8-point lead last month (48-40 percent). Republicans' net approval of Trump is down 13 points from March to June, declining every month in that span.

Apple is transforming the listening experience with a new immersive sound feature that mimics surround sound in the theater.

The spatial sound feature also takes into account your current real-world situation. TheAirPods Pro earbuds will continually recalibrate based on the position of your head to whatever device you're using.

It also works with Dolby 5.1, Dolby 7.1, and even Dolby ATMOS. But with the first beta already out, we're starting to discover them all.
