For a while now, we have been hearing rumors that Apple could be looking to launch a pair of AirPods with noise cancelling technology. Those rumors gained a ton of traction in recent times when in iOS 13.2, new AirPods icons were spotted, giving credence to the rumors that a new pair of AirPods could be in the works at the very least.
Now according to developer Guilherme Rambo, he has tweeted an animation found within the iOS 13.2 beta which allegedly shows how the new AirPods could feature adjustable noise cancellation. As you can see in the tweet below, users will be able to adjust how much noise cancellation their AirPods use through the volume slider in Control Center.
This will be useful because for the most part, a lot of noise cancelling headphones just come with one setting and users can’t change it. Some companies like Sony have attempted to create headphones that allow users to pause the feature by tapping on the earcups, which is actually also pretty useful.

That being said, there’s no word on when these AirPods could be announced. It was initially believed that Apple could host an event later this month to announce new iPads and the 16-inch MacBook Pro, but recent reports suggests that those upgrades could only come in 2020. Either way, take it with a grain of salt but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more information.
