Introduction: In iOS 12.2, there is a new setting interface related to AirPods. Specifically, you can set the voice to wake up the Siri function in AirPods, which is what we thought before. AirPods 2 is the most One of the important new features.

Early this morning, Apple officially pushed the iOS 12.2 beta system to developers preview users. Users who are registered as developers can get updates, or they can receive OTA upgrades by installing configuration files. For the average consumer, there are actually not many upgrades. According to foreign media reports, the changes are currently open to Apple News in Australia, HomeKit adds TV support, adjusts AirPlay icons, redraws Wallet card UI, etc.

If we only look at the new features of the system, we can develop these changes as "trivial," but things were not as simple as we thought. In iOS 12.2, there is a new setting interface related to AirPods. Specifically, you can set the voice to wake up the Siri function in AirPods, which is what we thought was the most important new function of AirPods 2 generation. One.

This information made us feel excited, apparently on the occasion of the official version of iOS 12.2, AirPods 2 generation also appeared. With the advent of new hardware, some features require new system support. Therefore, the appearance of this feature of iOS 12.2, in addition to supporting the existence of AirPods 2, also told us that the release time of AirPods 2 is not far off.

The current AirPods support double-clicking on either side of the headset to wake up Siri. It seems that the direct voice wakeup Siri is not supported on the hardware, but the corresponding sensor is still missing. In addition, the outside world rumors that the second generation of AirPods will also support the health monitoring function, switch to the USB-C interface, etc., while the noise reduction, waterproof and other high-pitched functions are not certain.

I still remember that Apple held a new product launch last spring. In addition to the iPad 2018, the new system was officially launched. It can be seen that in 2019, Apple is likely to hold similar events, and the protagonist is the iPad.2019 and AirPods 2, while iOS 12.2 will also meet with you.

AirPods is hailed as Apple's most popular accessory product and has been around for a long time since its launch in 2016. Perhaps because AirPods is so good to sell, Apple has never had the motivation to update. However, with the continuous pursuit of the products of friends and the progress of TWS products, it seems that the arrival of AirPods 2 is coming.
