With the release of the iOS 15 operating system, some Apple devices are expected to receive additional features. In particular, we are talking about the flagship models of TWS-headphones of the AirPods series, which can be searched for in the Find My network (“Locator”), specially created by the company to locate lost Apple devices.
In addition to Conversation Boost and Spatial Audio, the AirPods Pro and AirPods Max will be able to bind them to an Apple ID, in addition to “simple” searching using Precision Finding.
AirPods Pro and AirPods Max will work in much the same way as Apple’s AirTags, which are designed to be attached to things. Bluetooth will allow you to determine their location in case the user is sure that they are nearby, but does not know exactly where they are. The location can be viewed on a map even if the headphones are not currently connected to the iPhone or iPad.
As the specialists of the 9to5mac portal found in the iOS 15 code, for this they will need to be linked to the Apple ID. And if the AirPods and AirPods 2 don’t support the feature, then the Pro and Max versions will likely be able to receive a corresponding firmware update. Linking to an Apple ID will help you find headphones, even taking into account the fact that, unlike other Apple devices, the one who “found” them can reconnect the headphones to his smartphone, unlinking them from the previous device by simple manipulations.
As a result, the headphones will notify the owner even if someone else is using his peripherals. IOS 15 is expected to be released this September alongside the iPhone 13 line of smartphones.
