Conversation Boost offers AirPods Pro owners a new way to increase the volume of people speaking close by. The feature was mentioned at WWDC this summer, and is now available with the latest AirPods Pro firmware. Conversation Boost operates as a custom transparency mode, focusing on sound from a person talking in front of you. This can help boost the conversation in a noisy room, or for those who have trouble hearing.
Third generation AirPods have arrived. Apple showed off the latest installment in its wireless headphone lineup at the fall "Unleashed" event. Completely redesigned, the AirPods 3 offer several features previously offered on the AirPods Pro and AirPods Max models. Much like their predecessor, the latest AirPods are wireless earbuds with a universal fit and no ear tips.
AirPods automatically connect to any device signed into your iCloud account. But when one or both of your AirPods get mixed up with another pair, your iPhone or iPad will warn of an "AirPods Mismatch".
Nintendo has recently updated its portable Switch gaming console with Bluetooth headphone capabilities. This means AirPods or any other compatible Bluetooth headphones can be paired to the Switch. Up to two wireless controllers can be connected to the Switch while using AirPods, and up to 10 different Bluetooth devices can be paired and stored on the Switch for later use.
No, AirPods do not support Apple Music lossless playback.
Rumors point to a firmware update in the works. This update would add high-fidelity audio playback to all AirPods models when released.
Existing AirPods hardware (W1 / H1) is capable of wirelessly streaming lossless audio encoded as ALAC or FLAC with a future update installed.
