From the 23rd of September, 2019, Beats will be receiving the iOS 13.1 Audio Sharing Feature for its headphones. This is in fact shows that the beats headphones will obtain the same audio sharing feature as the AirPods.
What is Audio Sharing?
Audio Sharing allows pairing two sets of headphones to the same iPhone or iPod, so you and another person can listen to the same tune or watch a movie together. It requires an iPhone 8 or above, and is activated through the Bluetooth menu in Settings.
Apple isn’t reserving the convenient new audio sharing feature in iOS 13 just for its own AirPods; the company is also extending it to Beats products. Audio Sharing allows two sets of earbuds or headphones to be connected to a single iPhone, letting people listen to the same music or watch video content together from one device.

The report confirms that the feature will expand to cover all Beats headphones that feature the H1 and W1 chips inside. So if you own the BeatsX, Studio3 Wireless, Solo3 Wireless, and the Powerbeats3 Wireless, you’ll be able to use the Audio Sharing feature in the very near future as well.
The following Beats products will support Audio Sharing:
- Powerbeats Pro
- Powerbeats 3 Wireless
- Solo 3 Wireless
- Studio 3 Wireless
Basically, they all have either Apple’s W1 or H1 chip inside, which is what enables the feature.
Beats says Audio Sharing will be available next week. Like AirPods, Apple occasionally updates the firmware of Beats products quietly in the background to improve performance and add new capabilities.
Basically, the Audio Sharing was originally intended to be part of yesterday’s iOS 13.0 update; but was pushed back to iOS 13.1, which Apple has said will be released on September 24th — earlier than the September 30th date the company originally announced.
