Apple increases production of the MacBook Air 15
According to display industry analyst Ross Young, Apple began mass production of the new 15-inch MacBook Air in February and ramped up production in March. Apple is reportedly planning another increase in April, so the MacBook Air 15 will be ready to ship right after the launch.
Earlier reports suggested that Apple could unveil the biggest MacBook Air yet in April or May. Meanwhile, a presentation at Apple’s WWDC conference in June seems more likely. The new Apple MacBook Air 15.4 joins the newly designed 13.6-inch MacBook Air. But it remains to be seen whether it will get the M2 chipset or whether the new M3 processor is already on board.
New Apple AirPods patent for more immersive sound
Apple has filed a new patent with the United States Trademark and Patent Office (USPTO) describing a possible future feature of its AirPods headphones. It aims to make listening to music more immersive and natural by taking into account the acoustics of the environment.
The headphones dynamically adjust various parameters to simulate the user’s acoustic environment. In theory, with the available sensors, microphones and digital signal processing unit, the headset should be able to detect where you are – in the car, train, room, office, etc.
The algorithm then adjusts the sound pressure, simulates the acoustics of the environment, and tunes the sound acoustics of the source audio or video file. Judging by the schematic above, spatial audio also plays a key role. Like most patents, this one can end up in a real product or disappear again without a trace.
