iOS 17 Update: What’s New?
- Exclusive to AirPods Pro 2, Lossless Audio on Apple Vision Pro. When using AirPods with Vision Pro, this feature supports lossless audio. Apple hasn’t said why this capability is disabled on other devices, though.
- Personalized Volume: Using the ambient noise level, this feature automatically modifies the media volume. It functions in concert with Conversational Awareness and Adaptive Audio.
- Call mute/unmute: This function is one of the most useful since it enables users to mute and unmute calls with a simple touch on the AirPods’ stem. It should be noted that only the most recent models of AirPods and AirPods Max support this.
- Adaptive Audio: This new feature automatically adjusts the noise cancellation and transparency modes based on your environment. For example, if you’re walking down a busy street, Adaptive Audio will boost the noise cancellation to block out the ambient noise. But if you start talking to someone, Adaptive Audio will switch to transparency mode so you can hear them clearly.
- Personalized Volume: This new feature uses machine learning to tailor the volume of your media to your individual preferences and the environment around you. For example, if you’re listening to music in a noisy environment, Personalized Volume will boost the volume of the music so you can hear it clearly. But if you’re in a quiet environment, Personalized Volume will reduce the volume of the music so you don’t disturb others.
