New iPhones Reportedly To Include Dual Bluetooth Audio Capabilities

Japanese technology blog Mac Otakara is out with a report that says Apple's next-generation iPhone will likely enable users to connect two pairs of Bluetooth headsets simultaneously. The blog quoted an Asian supply chain source as stating that this feature is similar to Samsung's Dual Audio capabilities.

With this feature, users will be able to connect their iPhones to two pairs of headsets, such as AirPods and Powerbeats Pro, to share what they are listening to with their friends. Another usage scenario is in which the iPhone can be connected to a car and a wireless headset - concurrently send GPS navigation to the in-car audio system and headphones.

It is reported that Samsung's Dual Audio feature is realized by Bluetooth 5.0 technology, which indicates that Apple may adopt similar technology. If this is true, Apple will likely introduce this feature into previous iPhone models through software updates in the future. The current iPhone can connect to multiple Bluetooth devices (and connect multiple speakers via AirPlay 2), but only one Bluetooth audio profile.

Other than the Dual Bluetooth Audio feature, this year's iPhone may also add support for Ultra-Wide-Band (for indoor positioning and navigation), frosted glass casing, bilateral wireless charging that allows you to charge accessories via your iPhone, upgraded Face ID sensor, larger battery capacity and Triple-Lens camera (wide angle + telephoto + super wide-angle lens).
