‘AirPods will warn if you wear them incorrectly’
If you wear earplugs incorrectly, your music won’t sound so good. That seems logical, but Apple may warn users about this. According to Apple Insider future AirPods would have an ultrasonic sensor. This gives a signal if the earplugs are not properly fitted. In addition, the sensor also detects whether you have the AirPods in your ear at all. If that doesn’t appear to be the case, the sound may be playing through the speakers of your iPhone or iPad.
This ultrasonic sensor would be a new way to increase the ease of use of AirPods. From iOS 14, the earbuds can already switch independently between different devices. If you listen to music on your iPhone, but then play a video on your iPad, the sound moves with you. You can also turn off this automatic switching of your AirPods.
We think we know about the new AirPods
Apple is expected to release two new sets of AirPods this year, although it is not known whether they already have an ultrasonic sensor.
The design of the AirPods 3 is rumored to be very similar to that of the AirPods Pro, although they probably do not have active noise cancellation. They would get a better battery life. The release of the AirPods 3 should take place before the summer.
The release of the AirPods Pro 2 may also not be long in coming. These more luxurious earplugs may already be for sale in April. The ‘sticks’ at the end may disappear and the AirPods Pro 2 would appear in two sizes.
