Apple has announced audio management features for the AirPods Pro 2.
On the occasion of the WWDC, Apple’s annual event for developers, the Cupertino company announced a lot of new features that will land on the next operating systems of its products. The AirPods Pro 2 aren’t left out, and three major upgrades are on the agenda for the brand’s high-end headphones.
Audio-related features for AirPods Pro 2
Scheduled to be deployed from the end of this year 2023, the new features on the AirPods Pro 2 consist of adaptive audio, a personalized volume mode as well as automatic sound reduction when an individual initiates the conversation.
Adaptive audio is a combination of transparency mode and active noise reduction. This mode should reduce annoying background noise around you while avoiding total isolation of the user. For this, the sounds picked up in the close environment will not be masked by the algorithm. Adaptive audio can be activated when listening to music or during calls.
The custom volume mode uses machine learning to fine-tune the reduction settings offered by the headphones, based on the environment and user preferences. This mode remains quite similar to that of adaptive audio on its operation.
A new feature is also planned to reduce the volume of the music and focus on the voices of the near environment when the user begins to speak.
Mute the microphone with a single tap
Still in terms of improvements, Apple is planning some additions and updates to all of its audio devices. We note the update of the service which allows the automatic switching of the listening source between the different Apple devices, in order to make it more efficient.
On the AirPods 3, AirPods Pro and AirPods Max side, the manufacturer is planning a new feature to physically activate and deactivate mute mode. It will be a press on the stem for the earphones, or on the Digital Crown for the AirPods Max.
