iPhone 14 and AirPods Pro 2 are set to get a Bluetooth upgrade with better audio coming through even when the connection gets rough.
iPhone 14 and AirPods Pro 2 Are Set To Get A Bluetooth Upgrade
Apple recently has filed a declaration where it stated that it intends to make use of a more advanced version of Bluetooth that it has used before which could be potentially great news for the iPhone 14 and AirPods Pro 2 as it will enable a couple of audio upgrades that will be very useful.
As seen by MacRumors, the Apple filing with Bluetooth’s control group simply means that the company could begin including Bluetooth 5.2 in its future products which so far t hasn’t done. The filing references Bluetooth 5.3 actually, but MacRumors, however, points out that apple always files for one version above the version of Bluetooth that it makes use of in practice for some unknown reasons.
Why really do we care about the version of Bluetooth that apple will be making use of? This is because the Bluetooth 5.2 version has one very new feature that is very useful although it is a practical one rather than an exciting one admittedly.
What is The Bluetooth LE Audio Feature?
This feature is called the LE Audio feature and it is designed to give users better audio quality most especially in cases where the connection between your headphone and phone gets weak. The claim on the other hand from the official website of Bluetooth is that the new system can sound better than the current Bluetooth audio even when it is only able to make use of 50% as much data when in connection.
What It Means to Have the Bluetooth LE Audio Feature
This then means that with LE audio devices, you could go much further from your device or even have more interference between your phone and your headphone before the sound gets cut out. This should make the whole thing more flexible and reliable.
This also means that there is the potential for a longer battery life from AirPods that makes use of it because it could easily transmit in good quality but even much more efficiently. That’s all assuming that apple implements it. This is a feature that has to be supported in products specifically. That being said, it does not mean having Bluetooth 5.2 in your device will get you the LE Audio feature automatically.
