Spatial audio is a sonic feature of Beats Fit Pro that adds surround sound to Apple's audio wearables. By utilizing dynamic head tracking, it brings a theater-like audio experience to the movie or video you're watching, so that it seems as if the sound is coming from all around you.

Spatial Audio Feature
Spatial audio uses the gyroscope and accelerometer in your ‌‌Beats Fit Pro‌‌ and iOS device to track the motion of your head and the position of your ‌iPhone/iPad‌, compares the motion data, and then maps the sound field to what's happening on the screen even as you move your head or your device.

What You Need

To take advantage of spatial audio on ‌‌Beats Fit Pro‌‌ earphones, you'll need an iPhone 7 or later or one of the iPad models listed below.

  • iPad Pro 12.9‑inch (3rd generation) and later
  • iPad Pro 11‑inch
  • iPad Air (3rd generation)

  • iPad (6th generation) and later
  • iPad mini (5th generation) and later

You'll also need iOS 15 or iPadOS 15 or later installed on your device.
