AirPods Studio Rumored to Come With U1 Chip, Ultra-Wideband Said to Be Vital to Future Apple Ecosystem
Proven leak “L0vetodream“Apple’s upcoming AirTags item today shares a lot of information about the Ultra-Wideband U1 chip in Tracker and Airpods Studio headphones.
The first in a series of tweets shared today simply stated that the AirPods studio contains an Ultra-Wideband U1 chip. It looks like the Find My app will use the U1 chip in Airpods Studio to locate the headphones, but it may also have other functions, such as orienting U1 devices across a range.

Apple says the U1 chip will “provide a short-distance wireless location for new experiences such as the next-generation digital car keys”, but much of its functionality is still not understood, except for Oriented AirDrop.
With greater accuracy than Bluetooth LEDs and Wi-Fi, you can measure the distance between two devices that support Ultra-Wideband by calculating the time it takes for a radio wave to travel between two devices. The leaked man went ahead Government “All Internet starts with U1.”
The U1 chip is only shown on the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro. The lack of U1 in the 2020 iPad Pro and the second iPhone SE cast doubt on the future of the chip until the recent addition of the Apple Watch Series 6.
More Tweet, Translated from Chinese, further explained the usefulness of the U1 chip at AirPods Studio and its broader significance. The expansion of the U1 chip to the Apple Watch Series 6 confirms Apple’s continued commitment to technology, and Liquor believes that the chip will be even more important in Apple’s ecosystem in the future.
I said this a few months ago. With the launch of the S6 and U1 chip, my prediction confirms that in the future the ecosystem will use U1 to determine the distance and direction similar to the spatial audio functionality of AirPods in iOS 14. The U1 chip should be able to automatically detect the left and right positioning of the headset, often with a new headset.
The U1 chip is reported to facilitate automatic detection of the orientation of the headphones, which means that it does not matter what type of headphones the users are wearing. There is no static left or right side and users can simply wear headphones and switch audio channels as needed without user intervention.
With the release of Spatial Audio for the Airpods Pro and the introduction of Oriented AirDrop for the iPhone 11 with iOS 13, Apple seems to be becoming more interested in orientation and location-centric technology.
Final translation Tweet It describes how Apple’s upcoming air tags are more important than just item tracking.
A tag is a node that connects everything. The node acts as a bridge to connect different devices. U1 is the most important part of achieving this bridge. The privacy function in iOS 14 is designed to make better use of the tag in a private environment. A good solution to the problem of privacy breaches related to usage.
The idea of ”air tags” as a key component of a larger A1 network to “bridge” the various devices ahead of privacy can be explained by what makes air tags different from current item tracking and why Apple waited so long to launch them. This not only has the potential for more personal, accurate and comprehensive item tracking capabilities, but also provides close range data exchange between devices with additional directional information.
Air tags are expected to arrive with the iPhone 12 in October. The Airtags and Airpods studio has been in production for some time.
With videos and videos shared on both products over the past week, it seems that the announcement of both products will not be much.
