Apple’s Upcoming AirPods Pro to Include In-Built Temperature Sensor

Apple is reportedly developing new health features for its audio product line, including the ability for AirPods to conduct hearing tests

Apple is reportedly developing new health features for its audio product line, including the ability for AirPods to conduct hearing tests. While AirPods already support audiogram profiles, Apple’s potential implementation of its own test would be similar to “Sherlocking” a feature from third-party developers. Additionally, Apple is exploring the positioning and marketing of AirPods Pro as a hearing aid, following recent changes by the FDA to facilitate over-the-counter hearing aid purchases. To support this initiative, the company has hired engineers experienced in traditional hearing aid development.

Another feature in development for AirPods is a built-in temperature sensor, similar to the one introduced in Apple Watch Series 8 and Watch Ultra. This sensor would provide more accurate body temperature measurements when placed in the ear canal compared to readings from the wrist. However, both the hearing test and temperature sensor functionalities are expected to be several months or even years away from being implemented.

In the near term, Apple plans to refresh the AirPods Pro by introducing a USB-C charging case, aligning with the EU’s common charging standard. This move signifies Apple’s gradual transition away from Lightning connectors for its audio products. While the company recently updated the AirPods Pro, it is unlikely to launch an entirely new hardware version in the near future.

AirPods users can also anticipate new software features accompanying iOS 17, such as a button press to mute during calls and improvements to device switching. Furthermore, there is speculation that Apple may permanently reduce the price of its second-generation AirPods to $99, enhancing competitiveness against lower-cost alternatives from Samsung, Sony, and Amazon.

As Apple continues to innovate in the audio space, these forthcoming features demonstrate the company’s commitment to enhancing user experience and expanding its presence in the health technology sector.
