At WWDC 2023, Apple today announced that AirPods Pro 2nd Gen will get several new intelligent features.
This fall, AirPods Pro (2nd generation) will get a brand-new feature called Adaptive Audio. Adaptive Audio mode dynamically blends Transparency mode and Active Noise Cancellation together based on the conditions of a user’s environment to deliver the best experience in the moment.
This new listening mode will seamlessly tailor the noise control experience while users move between environments and interactions that are constantly changing throughout the day.
The new Personalized Volume feature uses machine learning to understand environmental conditions and listening preferences over time to automatically fine-tune the media experience.
Also, AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) users can simply start speaking and Conversation Awareness will lower the volume and enhance the voices in front of the user, all while reducing background noise.
Moving between Apple devices with AirPods gets even easier with updates to Automatic Switching. The connection time between a user’s Apple devices is significantly faster and more reliable.
Finally, AirPods on calls is enhanced with a new Mute or Unmute feature across AirPods Pro (1st and 2nd generations), AirPods (3rd generation), and AirPods Max. Users can press the stem to quickly mute or unmute themselves.
The above new AirPods features will be available this fall as a free firmware update.
