iOS 12.2 Includes ‘Hey Siri’ Support For Rumored AirPods 2
Apple seeded the first beta of iOS 12.2 to developers yesterday and it seems some interesting changes are coming. We have previously heard that Apple was working on the next generation of AirPods which will include some notable upgrades compared to the current generation. Currently dubbed as the “AirPods 2”, it looks like Apple’s truly wireless headphones will add support for ‘Hey Siri’ command. Let’s see some more details on the matter.
iOS 12.2 Reveals ‘Hey Siri’ Support Coming With The The Highly Rumored AirPods 2
As we have mentioned earlier, Apple will add support for ‘Hey Siri’ in its upcoming AirPods 2. The AirPods have been mentioned in the rumor mill previously and it seems the next generation, with notable upgrades, will see daylight soon. It was spotted by 9to5mac and there is more information available as well.
“When pairing the new, yet to be released AirPods, the user will be asked to set up “Hey, Siri”, just like it can be set up for other devices such as iPhones and iPads. This training configures AirPods to respond to only the user’s voice and not the voice of other people. The main difference from using “Hey, Siri” with these new AirPods will be that the AirPods themselves will do the recognition, sending the command to the paired device. This means you’ll be able to use Siri while your iPhone is in your pocket without having to tap on your AirPods.”
The first beta of iOS 12.2 has revealed the Hey Siri’ setup interface which gave room to the news. While there is no exact defined date for the arrival of AirPods 2, reports originating earlier this week marks the early part of 2019 as the potential schedule.
With ‘Hey Siri’ support, the feature will bolster the claims of the AirPods being truly wireless. There will be more details to the story, so be sure to stick around for more. We will let you guys know more details shared by developers as soon as they are done tinkering with the latest iOS 12.2 beta build.
