An improved U1 chip in the iPhone 15 family and support for Wi-Fi 7 on iPhone 16 should optimize the integration with the new Apple Vision Pro headset.
iOS 16.3 provides a new visual guide to educate users on how to use the Handoff feature to transfer music and other audio between their iPhone and HomePod.
According to a prominent leaker, the next Apple TV and a smaller $99 HomePod model will double as ultra-wide band (UWB) base stations capable of tracking the user's location as they walk around the house. This is going to require Apple's A1 chip for spatial awareness that will allegedly be built into the next Apple TV and the HomePod mini. In addition, the feature will require an U1-enabled device like one of the iPhone 11 or Apple Watch Series 6 models.
Apple's rumored over-ear headphones, dubbed AirPods Studio, are said to use the company's U1 chip for spatial awareness to determine how they're being worn.
