Apple’s 2019 iPhones will include a feature that Samsung’s flagships have had since the Galaxy S8.
According to a report by a japanese post (via Macrum), Apple’s upcoming iPhones will include Samsung’s Dual Audio feature, which allows users to stream audio to two Bluetooth accessories at the same time.
Samsung and many other Android smartphone manufacturers have been offering this feature for some years now. In fact, even current iPhones allow users to connect to multiple Bluetooth devices simultaneously, however the existing limitation requires different devices to use different Bluetooth profiles. This means that if you have two headsets connected, you can use one for calls only and one for media only.
With the upcoming iPhones, Apple is looking to offer the ability to connect two similar Bluetooth profiles at the same time. In one example, the report suggests a usage scenario where an iPhone could be connected to a car, as well as a wireless headset, which transmits GPS directions to the car’s audio system and audio to the headphones.
Considering that Samsung’s implementation is based on Bluetooth 5.0, it stands to reason that Apple is too. Which also means that Apple could, if it wishes, back up the new feature of the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR, all of which have Bluetooth 5.0 built in.
Apple is expected to debut the 2019 iPhones in September this year. We will reportedly see three new variants: 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED iPhones and a 6.1-inch LCD iPhone. Apple also informs End the 3D touch on all upcoming iPhones. In addition, the The selfie cameras on the new iPhones are also set to upgrade to 12 MP. However, there is still a confusion about what the new series will be called, iPhone XI or iPhone 11. Here it is everything we know about the next iPhones so far.
While the official launch of the iPhones still has a long way to go, we currently have WWDC 2019 wait and Here’s what we expect from Apple’s annual conference this year..
