The feature of automatic switching will be added to the AirPods Pro, Powerbeats, second-generation AirPods, Powerbeats Pro and Beats Solo Pro in a firmware update. So if your iPad reconnects to your iPhone and you switch on your laptop, the audio will automatically switch over to the laptop.
Along with this, the new Spatial feature will have 3D sounds to give you a “movie theatre experience”. If you are listening to music, the sound will constantly recalibrate with respect to the position of your head, no matter what device you're using.
The release date for this update has not been revealed yet.
