Live Listen, the iOS 12 function for AirPods that will revolutionize the use of wireless headphones



Apple will revolutionize the use of its wireless AirPods thanks to the arrival of a new iOS 12 functionality called Live Listen ("Listen" live).

This new feature will allow users to have their iPhone as a directional microphone , since the audio will be retransmitted live to AirPods.

Live Listen could offer incredible benefits to those who have hearing problems , and one of the first testimonies about the function clearly demonstrates this.


How Live Listen works with AirPods
An iOS 12 user had the opportunity to test the Live Listen functionality with their own AirPods. Nick Dawson, founder of the Sibley Innovation Hub at John Hopkins University, documented his mother's use of Live Listen.

Nick Dawson's mother used the AirPods to watch a movie on the television . The movie had a normal volume and placed an iPhone near the TV speakers. The audio was redirected to the AirPods.

"I HAD NOT HEARD HER LAUGH OUT LOUD IN A MOVIE FOR YEARS. WE ARE WATCHING 'THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT'. "

In fact, as Nick Dawson says, his mother even goes ahead of the rest when it comes to resuming the dialogues. In addition, he also mentioned that the family was able to connect an old iPhone to a television using a simple Velcro so that his mother could listen to the audio playback of a Washington Nationals baseball game with his AirPods.

This is how technology, dear readers, makes the world a little better.
