Apple has released iOS 13.2 developer beta, which brings the Deep Fusion camera feature on the iPhone 11 series and the ‘Announce Message with Siri’ feature for AirPods. If you are a developer interested in trying out these new features, then you can download the iOS 13.2 developer beta on your devices.
However these are not the only changes Apple has introduced in this new beta, as some hidden changes found inside the operating system point towards the next generation of AirPods, commonly referred to as AirPods 3.
A new glyph has been discovered hidden inside iOS 13.2 developer beta that shows AirPods 3 with noise cancelling. iOS 13.2 developer beta also has references to various listening modes such as noise cancelling, which is called “focus mode”.
It is apparent that the new glyph points towards a new and unreleased generation of Apple based on the look of the headphones that feature an in-ear design. These headphones also seem to have replaceable ear tips. The new device has a model code of B298.
The icon that must have been left in the beta iOS accidentally is found under the accessibility settings. This could mean just like the current generation of AirPods users will also be able to use these headphones as hearing aids.
It is likely that Apple will announce these new AirPods with noise cancelling and perhaps more new features at a special event in October. These headphones are expected to be offered alongside the second generation AirPods and cost over or around $250. Apart from AirPods 3 Apple is rumored to announce a 16-inch MacBook Pro, new iPad Pros and more.
We will share more once more information is available regarding the rumored October event and the AirPods 3.
