Apple Patents Earbuds With Noise-Canceling Sensor Smarts

Curated by

 

According a patent filed in February last year but published this week, and spotted by  AppleInsider , Cupertino is eyeing up making wireless earbuds which also incorporate bone-conduction technology in order to improve voice communications. The patent also describes deploying a range of other sensors — such as internal microphones and accelerometers — to better detect external noise to boost noise canceling capabilities and enhance the in-ear audio experience. Apple continues looking at ways to improve its earbuds — including potentially ditching the iconic white cables which had such a starring role in iTunes ads , back in the day.

 

 

  • albeit it’s yet to bring an implementation of the technology to the earbuds it ships with iOS devices.
  • Self posts must contribute positively to /r/technology and foster reasonable discussion.
  • It’s not the first earbud-related bone conduction patent from Apple.
