iOS 13 Audio Sharing Feature is Coming to All Beats Headphones With H1 and W1 Chips

One of the new features set to officially launch in iOS 13.1 next week is "Audio Sharing," which lets you share the audio that you hear from your iPhone with another user.

While this feature was initially announced as being supported only for AirPods and Powerbeats Pro with Apple's H1 chip, it will also be coming to all Beats headphones that use a W1 chip, including Beats Studio3 Wireless, BeatsX, Powerbeats3 Wireless, and Solo3 Wireless (via Engadget).

Engadget says the update for Beats headphones will arrive on September 23, although iOS 13.1 won't be released until the following day.

Similar to the audio sharing I occasionally encounter on public transit where someone either simply plays their music loudly through their phone’s speaker or use a Beats Pill to share their audio with the extra oomph.

Joking aside, this will be pretty cool and I’m looking forward to it. There’s been a few times at work where I have wished I could share music with a friend/colleague who sits next to me (we talk about music a lot), but she doesn’t have Apple Music so she goes off to YouTube to try to find what I’m talking about. It will be kind of cool to be able to listen along together, etc. Another use will be when I’m flying cross-country to visit the husband’s family— it will be nice to be able to both watch whatever I have on the iPad simply by linking up two sets of headphones.


Because its not September 24th yet
Not with that attitude it isn’t. ;)

(Side note: OMG. I’m happy to see the MR forum upgrade finally updated the emoji.)

A decade ago, developer Riley Testut released the GBA4iOS emulator for iOS, and since it was against the rules at the time, Apple put a stop to downloads. Emulators have been a violation of the App Store rules for years, but that changed on April 5 when Apple suddenly reversed course and said that it was allowing retro game emulators on the App Store.
