Apple reimagines AirPods Pro with advanced surround sound

Headphones
From the one click setup to the automatic pairing with all your devices, to how they pause your audio when you take them out. People love the magical experience that air pods deliver. Now we're bringing even more magic to air pods to tell you all about it. Here's Marianne ion asked you Thanks, Craig. We have some amazing updates coming to air pods. Starting with automatic switching. Air pods will now seamlessly move between your devices without you having to manually switch them. Let's say you just finished listening to a podcast and you pick up your iPad to watch a show. AirPods will magically switch over and later you start a video conference on your Mac. AirPods will automatically switch again. And if a phone call comes in, the audio in your AirPods will route right back to your phone. We also have an exciting new feature coming to AirPods Pro, Spatial Audio You know the experience of being in a movie theatre with a state of the art surround sound system, one where the sound not only comes from in front of you, but also from the left the right behind and even from above you. Well, we are thrilled to bring that same immersive experience to AirPods pro. But it turns out, it's a lot harder to do when you only have a single earbud in each year. So our team created advanced spatial audio algorithms for AirPods pro that replicates the movie theater experience. By applying directional audio filters and subtly adjusting the frequencies each ear receives, we can play sounds virtually anywhere in Face, creating an immersive surround sound experience. But to truly deliver on this promise we had to factor in real life situations. First people move their heads. For an authentic surround sound experience. You need the sound field to stay fixed. So the voice feels like it's coming from the actor. And not some random point in space. So we use the accelerometer and gyroscopes and iPods Pro to track the motion of your head. Remapping the sound field so it stays anchored to your device even as your head moves. And it's not only your head that can move but you might move your iPad or iPhone as well That's why we constantly compare the motion data from your head and your screen to understand how they're moving in relation to each other. So if your bus turns the corner or you're playing banks, the sound stays in sync. The result is the surround sound experience that keeps you in the middle of the action. No matter where you go. spatial audio for air pods pro will work with content encoded and five dot one, seven dot one and even Dolby Atmos. Thanks, Maryann, I've been using the new spatial audio and I think you're all really gonna love it.
