AirPods Pro have new features in iOS 17: here they are

New features become available for the AirPods Pro in iOS 17. We’ll tell you what’s new and how the new features work!

New features for the AirPods Pro in iOS 17

With iOS 17, cool features come to your iPhone, such as the completely new Standby mode is introduced and the Diary app comes to your phone. Apps such as Phone, FaceTime and Messages are also being overhauled in the new iOS update. But that’s not all, because the AirPods Pro get adaptive audio in iOS 17. These are the three new features:

1. Adaptive mode in iOS 17

With iOS 17, an adaptive listening mode comes to your AirPods Pro. With this function, the earphones respond to the amount of sound in your environment. In this listening mode, the noise cancellation of your AirPods is adjusted to the amount of sound around you. If you are in a noisy room, the adaptive audio ensures that noise cancellation blocks more sound.

This happens automatically, so you don’t have to continuously switch between transparency mode and noise reduction. The earphones therefore respond dynamically to external sounds, so loud sounds are still blocked. In this mode you can still hear conversations, but disturbing sounds are filtered out. This way you can enjoy the best sound in any environment, very useful on the train or in the office, for example. The AirPods automatically recognize a loud environment in iOS 17.

2. AirPods get Call Detection

For many, this is the most useful feature coming to your AirPods in iOS 17: Call Detection. The mode automatically lowers the volume of your AirPods as soon as you start talking. Your earphones will then recognize when someone is talking to you, even with noise cancellation enabled. When someone speaks to you, their voice is amplified so that you hear it immediately.

This does not mean that noise cancellation is immediately turned off as soon as someone talks to you. With Call Detection, the voices are clearly picked up by the earphones, but annoying background noise is still filtered out. This way you can hear the conversation clearly and without distracting sounds. Conversation detection in iOS 17 only works if the conversation partner is in front of you.

3. Personalized volume

The latest new feature for your AirPods Pro in iOS 17 is Personalized Volume. In this mode, the volume of the earphones is automatically adjusted to your environment. If you are in a room with a lot of noise, the volume of your music will automatically increase. As soon as you are in a quieter environment, the AirPods automatically lower the music volume. You will never have to adjust the volume yourself again!
