iOS 16.1 beta includes a new toggle to disable stem volume control for second-gen AirPods Pro
The stems of the new AirPods Pro offer touch volume control. So, with a light swipe up or down on the stem, users can quickly adjust the volume and control media playback. Since this is the first time that Apple has implemented such a feature in its earbuds, it can be a bit finicky at times. So, some users may want to disable it.
Apple has added a new toggle in Accessibility in iOS 16.1 beta that allows users to enable or disable stem volume control. The new toggle will give users more granular control over their AirPods Pro. Users can already customize the press and hold function to activate Active Noise Cancellation, Transparency mode or to access Siri.
iOS 16.1 beta also includes an updated status bar battery percentage indicator along with a lock screen charging indicator. In addition, Apple has changed how the “Allow Paste” feature functions in beta 2. Users will only be shown the “Allow Paste” pop-up when an app automatically tries to access the clipboard.
Priced at $249 and powered by the new H2 chip, the AirPods Pro 2 offer next-level audio performance including improved Active Noise Cancellation, Transparency mode, and Personalized Spatial Audio. Apple has made some major improvements to the case of the AirPods Pro with the debut of the second generation. The new case is sweat and water-resistant. It also includes a lanyard loop so users do not have to purchase an extra case if they want to attach the case to something.
In addition to this, the charging case now has a built-in speaker so you never lose your AirPods Pro. Adding on to this, the new earbuds also offer Precision Finding, which is compatible with any iPhone that has a U1 chip.
