While the majority of software updates for Apple products garner plenty of attention, that's typically not the case for minor firmware updates for Apple-branded accessories. Even when they are the massively popular AirPods lineup. Still, Apple's back with another firmware update for its popular truly wireless headphones lineup.
Support for the Find My network feature for the AirPods Pro earbuds and AirPods Max over-ear headphones is delayed and won't launch alongside iOS 15 today, Apple has confirmed.
If you have a pair of AirPods Max, or really any over-ear headphones that you don't want just lying around on your desk, or, worse yet, stuffed into a drawer, a stand can help with that. We've put together a roundup of the best stands you can buy right now for your headphones.
Apple has plenty of new AirPods features ready for your enjoyment, all you need to do is install iOS 15 and other software updates on your Apple devices. Here are all of them in one place.
AirPods and other wearable devices with built-in microphones could provide pretty reliable measurements of the wearer's respiratory rate using just their breath audio.
iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 have been discovered to link the AirPods Pro and AirPods Max headphones to your Apple ID, which allows Apple to leverage its Find My network and make it easy to see the AirPods location on the map, even when disconnected from your iPhone.
Apple last updated the firmware for the company's high-end, over-ear AirPods Max headphones back in March of this year. And now the company is back with another update. As is par for the course, what it actually does is a mystery at the moment.
With iOS 15's announcement out of the way, it's time to get to AirPods.
A leaker claims that Apple is working on a future software update that will enable you to stream high-fidelity audio in the lossless formats on your AirPods after all.
At this point, Apple's claim to fame when it comes to lossless audio is just that, technically speaking, Apple Music will support the feature in the near future. What you'll use to listen to that audio is a bit of a mystery, as far as Apple's own ecosystem is concerned.
Apple’s AirPods Pro sent a shockwave through the earbud industry when they became some of the first wireless earbuds to support active noise cancellation. Fast-forward to today, and even Apple’s newer AirPods Max over-ear headphones support this feature along with transparency.
But Apple isn’t the only brand pumping out earbuds and headphones with active noise cancellation and features similar to that of the AirPods Pro and AirPods Max. Sadly, the company limits iOS’ native controls to the first party audio consumption devices — requiring the use of third party apps to control third party accessories (eww).
If you have a pair of AirPods Pro or AirPods Max at your disposal, then chances are you’ve become somewhat fond of their Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency modes. The only problem? – Switching between those modes in a pinch, especially in rapid succession, tends to be a cumbersome two-step process.
Recognizing that this process could do with some refinements, iOS developer exodia9610 conceived a new and free jailbreak tweak known as QuickANC.
