Leaking design of apple's upcoming AirPods Studio headsets



The design of the AirPods Studio headset, widely rumored to be being launched by Apple, may have leaked in the form of a code discovered in the latest trial version of iOS 14.3.

9to5Mac, an Apple news site that was looking at the iOS 14.3 demo system that quickly came down after its initial release on Thursday, discovered an abstract sketch of what could be the design of headphones placed on the head.


The image shows a symbol much like previously leaked images of what was said to be Apple's high-quality earbuds, which offer two earcovers attached to the headband with metal arms. The leakers said that the axles on both ends of the band allow the earphones to rotate, similar to the designs in the headphones of companies such as Olufsen and Bang.

The patent registration, discovered last September, supports these claims and details the headset's unique features, such as convergence sensors for operating control. Separate reports claim that the speakers will include a U1 chip to perceive the direction.

AirPods Studio was rumored to be launched in November, but this date was postponed until March due to production problems. These problems may also exclude some key functions, but it is unclear what features will be removed from the final design.

Apple has indicated that it will soon expand its audio hardware lineup. Last October, for example, the company removed a range of earphones and smart speakers from third parties from the Apple Store and from the actual Apple Store outlets.

Apple sometimes pulls out products that may compete with new and upcoming releases, and in 2014, for example, the company stopped selling Fitbit wearables after the release of its Apple Watch.
