Apple's next-gen AirPods might also adopt a few other features from the AirPods Pro, including more sizing options, improved sound quality, as well as improved sweat and water resistance. Let us know down in the comments if you're seeing it with devices like Powerbeats and Powerbeats Pro in iOS 14. And if then you get a call on your iPhone, the audio will switch to that.

As for what type of features Apple's third-generation AirPods will bring to the table, previous reports have indicated that the device will include noise cancellation functionality similar to the AirPods Pro model.

A new auto-switching feature means that the AirPods can now "magically switch over between devices", detecting automatically which device you are using.

The pictures that you see here were shared on Twitter by Sonny Dickson and are actually iPhone 12 dummies that are typically used by accessory makes to build cases and screen protectors before a new device launches. Apple is now putting in a new spatial algorithm that will create sound sources across your head, similar to how you receive sound from various directions in a theatre. And when you move to your MacBook for video calls, it will also seamlessly witch the audio to your laptop.

The spatial sound feature also takes into account your current real-world situation. Apple will use AI plus a built in accelerometer and gyroscope to better sync the audio according to the position of your head or your screen.

The spatial sound system works with all modern surround sound tech, including Dolby Atmos 5.1 and even 7.1 channel surround sound.
