From the last few years, Apple has been rumored to be preparing over-the-ear headphones. And now, 9to5Mac has managed to obtain code for an early build of Apple’s iOS 14 update which revealed a preview of the company’s rumored over-the-ear headphones.
During the code hunting, 9to5Mac discovered two icons for unreleased headphones. Both of these icons are symbols that Apple uses to indicate battery / volume levels for connected headphones in iOS and iPadOS. These symbols are found in both light and dark icons, indicating that Apple will likely offer at least two color options for the headphones.
This is not the first time that a headphone has been leaked in such way. Several Apple and Beats headphones have leaked this way from their icons appearing in the beta versions of iOS before the official announcement. The AirPods Pro, PowerBeats Pro, and the upcoming PowerBeats 4 have all shown up in software.
The icons doesn’t gives us everything about the headphone. However, it gives us some hints of what we can expect from the upcoming headphones. Like always, there’s padding below the headband, and the ear pads look a bit smaller than the outer design of the headphones themselves. Apart from this, no information can be traced from this picture.
As for the features, the headphones are expected to borrow features from AirPods, like the same seamless pairing process and an auto-pause function for when you remove them from your ears.
As for the availability, there is no fixed date announced or tweaked by the company. But we can expect to see these headphones soon and add the icon to the iOS 13 via a software update.
