Description

In this video, I’ll dive into the fascinating world of AirPods Adaptive Audio on iOS 17. If you’re an AirPods Pro user, get ready for an exciting journey. I’ll explain how this innovative feature enhances your listening experience. Adaptive audio dynamically adjusts your audio settings, allowing you to hear important things in your environment while enjoying your music. It even pauses your music when somebody is talking, making it easy to engage in conversations around you. Join me to uncover the magic of AirPods Adaptive Audio, taking noise cancellation to a whole new level.

Transcript

If you’ve got AirPods Pro, you’re going to notice a couple of brand new settings now you’ve updated to iOS 17. If I jump into the Settings app and then tap onto my connected AirPods at the top, on here I’ve got various options for noise control, some of which we’ve had before. Now, if you’re not sure, noise control is where it blocks out those background sounds, a bit like noise cancellation, so you can have noise control turned off, you can have that noise cancellation on and lose all the background sounds, or you can have transparency mode, where you can kind of hear as if you weren’t wearing headphones.

Well, as a new mode to iOS 17 called Adaptive, and this will detect what’s around you and get rid of the background noise but not the important noise. So, for example, if there’s a washing machine or dishwasher in the background but people talking, you’ll still hear people talking but you won’t necessarily hear that appliance humming away in the background. There’s also a very clever new feature called conversation awareness, and if I scroll down slightly, I have the option of turning this on or turning this off. And as you might anticipate, if it’s turned on, your music or whatever you’re listening to will dip down slightly in volume, the noise cancellation will come off, and you can hear the person you’re talking to without removing your headphones at all. It’s a really interesting feature and it works surprisingly well in my testing.

Of course, you won’t always want to go in the Settings app to make these changes, so actually, if you’re playing a song or listening to music, simply jump into Control Center, long press on that AirPods icon, and then from here, you can choose the noise control mode and the conversation awareness mode just for those two little toggles there. This is another nice little improvement in iOS 17 that makes your iPhone and your AirPods better than ever.
