Earlier this year, it was revealed that with the iOS 13 update, Apple will be introducing audio sharing. In case it wasn’t already obvious, audio sharing means that users will be able to listen to the same music on the same device through separate headphones, which unless you’re using a wired headphones with a splitter, would be almost impossible with Bluetooth headphones.
It was initially revealed that only the AirPods would be able to benefit from this feature, but the good news is that if you don’t own a pair of AirPods, then the upcoming iOS 13.1 update could be worth keeping an eye out for. This is because it has been revealed that the update will bring audio sharing to Beats headphones as well.
In case you didn’t know, Apple owns Beats headphones so it makes sense that they would expand the feature to the Beats lineup as well. Over the years, we’ve seen Apple upgrade Beats headphones and introduce Apple tech into them, such as the W1 chipset that allows them to be paired more quickly with iOS devices.
We’re not sure if Apple could eventually expand the feature to non-AirPods and non-Beats headphones, but it seems unlikely, so if you’re using a different brand of headphones, you could be out of luck, at least for now.
