Apple’s Wireless AirPods are known for its amazing sound, overall comfort and seamless connection. But there’s further to it. Apple is going to ease the use of AirPods to the users by implicating the functionality “Hey Siri”. Read further to get more insight related to this title.
AirPods and “Hey Siri” –
The current versions do support Siri but the users need to double tap one of the earbuds in order to use them. Thus, now with this new feature, the users can just say out “Hey Siri”. You could also make requests in iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches and HomePods.
And certain rumors have been floating around for a while. These suggest that the new iteration is known as AirPods2 and these would in fact have this feature built within it.
More Insight –
The latest update iOS 12.2 beta released for developers has quite a few changes and features. Basically, the highlight of this update is the new setup screen that’s used when configuring AirPods.
The new setup clearly states that the user will be able to talk to Siri with AirPods. This, as we know, is much like how it’s done with iPhones – by just saying “Hey Siri”.
How actually does this “Hey Siri” work?
The users would have to pair the new AirPods (yet to be announced). This is quite easy, all you have to do is to just set up “Hey Siri”. Once again this is just like how you do it with the other devices like iPhones or iPads.
The main difference from using “Hey, Siri” with these new AirPods is that the new AirPods themselves will do the recognition; it sends the command to the paired device and you’ll be able to use Siri while your iPhone is in your pocket without having to tap on your AirPods says fonearena.
Reports by fonearena suggest that the new generation of these gadgets would be launching in the first half of 2019. And this launch would include new health monitoring features as well. Judging by the new feature inclusion to the iOS update, it is likely that Apple has announced this feature quite soon; probably in time for the release of the public version of iOS 12.2 which is due for later this year.
