iOS 13 Upgraded the Audio Sharing Feature

Apple’s iOS 13 won’t hit the market until the fall of this year, but followers have been worried about the new wireless audio sharing feature since the company introduced the new operating system at the World Developers Conference (WWDC) last month in California.

The owners of AirPods and its wireless brother, Powerbeats Pro, have been feasting since Apple developed the shared listening function with the users of both products in mind in the first place.

Based on the WWDC presentation, audio sharing is possible “by proximity” and can be activated in this way:

1. Play media from Apple Music, YouTube, or any related app.

2. Move your phone closer to another phone to “share audio with (name)?”or simply “share audio” appears.

3. Tap on “Share Audio”.

4. Enjoy listening to the same music. You and the other person can control the volume separately.

No live demonstrations took place during WWDC, and only a still image of two phones with the message “share audio” was displayed on the screen. The testers of the beta version of iOS 13 also noticed that the “share by proximity” option is not yet possible.

However, reviews indicated that the beta version was able to successfully pair headphones via Bluetooth. Here’s how:

1. Connect your iPhone to your AirPods.

2. On your phone, go to settings and choose Bluetooth.

3. Press the pairing button on the back of the other pair of Airpods.

4. Back on your phone, tap on the second set of AirPods, as it is located under “Other Devices” for pairing.

The word “connected” appears next to each device when the pairing is successful. The same sound is then played back in both headphones. However, volume control and playback can only be done on the iPhone or iPad.

Apple indicates that iOS 13 is compatible with the following devices: iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, XR, XS or XS mini; 10.5-inch iPad Pro, 11-inch iPad Pro, 12.9-inch iPad (second generation and after), iPad mini (fifth generation) or iPad Air (third generation); and iPod touch (seventh generation).

Also at WWDC, Apple announced that it was withdrawing iTunes. However, none of your iTunes files will be lost because they will be redistributed to macOS 10.15 Catalina, which will replace iTunes.

iOS 13 also comes with new features in Apple Music, which can display the full lyrics of a song. Users will simply click on the icon in the lower left corner — a text box with quotation marks — to display the lyrics, which will rotate at the same rate as the song being played. You can also swipe up to see the following texts. The song will continue to play at its original speed.

Although sharing audio via iOS 13 may seem less cute or romantic than sharing headphones with your partner, Apple fans are already saying that it will provide stereo sound, improving individual listening pleasure. This is one of the things that retailers selling iPhones are banking on this fall.
