Apple’s AirPods are a major success – actually, they would be a billion-dollar business if Apple made them into their own company. Leading to that success, Apple has added many interesting features to the headphones since 2016, and the headphones are now slowly receiving redesigns and even more new features as the evolution of AirPods continues.

AirPods Max and AirPods Pro will get updates in 2022, with AirPods Max getting new color updates and AirPods Pro getting a major redesign removing the stems and enhancing Find My support.

AirPods 3, the newly redesigned Apple headphones, have no noise-canceling capabilities right now, but I bet they more than likely will with a firmware update in the future. And now, there are even rumors of Apple working on a feature that will allow users to come up with a secret word or catchphrase to turn off the AirPods’ noise-canceling features.

This feature, according to the rumors, will also be the headliner for the upcoming AirPods Pro. This will make the AirPods Pro again more “Pro” than the AirPods 3.

Along with the new design and the updates coming with Find My, Apple will be providing more useability and customizability for the AirPods Pro and Max with this new feature. The fruit company is making a new commitment of versatility to the AirPods lineup and making these products even easier to use and less reliant on the iPhone.
