Apple’s AirPods have become one of the company’s most popular products since their launch in 2016. Now, a newly published patent suggests that the tech giant is looking to take things to the next level with a future version of the AirPods case featuring a built-in touchscreen display.
According to the patent, the touchscreen display would allow users to control audio sources and interact with apps associated with the connected device. This could include things like adjusting the volume, skipping tracks, and even accessing Siri or other virtual assistants.
The patent also describes the possibility of the AirPods case displaying information such as weather updates, notifications, and even video playback. While this technology is still in the concept stage, it shows that Apple is continuing to innovate in the wearables space and is exploring new ways to enhance the user experience.
It’s worth noting that not all patents lead to finished products, but given Apple’s track record of innovation and the popularity of the AirPods, it’s possible that we could see a version of the AirPods case with a built-in touchscreen display in the not-too-distant future.
