Apple applies for technology patent, AirPods Pro 2 new features exposed

A few days ago, we shared the news of the “Bloomberg” column that Apple will release a number of new products this fall, including the AirPods Pro 2. Now the website AppleInsider found that Apple has recently applied for a technology patent involving noise cancellation, which is estimated to be possible. Adopted in AirPods Pro 2.

Currently, headphones with active noise cancellation are usually equipped with a transparent mode, which allows external sounds such as car horns or friends to say hello to enter the user’s ears. The problem is to turn on the transparent mode, which is equivalent to fully introducing external noise. Apple seems to have come up with a solution that allows one or two external sounds to pass in. Reports indicate that Apple recently applied for automatic transparency mode.

According to the patent filing, Apple said the technology could allow users to pre-set those sounds that can pass through with active noise cancellation turned on, such as a police car siren or someone speaking the user’s name. Some foreign media estimate that the above-mentioned patented technology may be used in the AirPods Pro 2 released before the end of this year, making this high-end AirPods have more selling points to attract consumers to replace the old ones.
