As you are familiar with Apple’s previous launch of headsetproducts such as The AirPods, which are popular with consumers, Apple may be launching headphones that are different from traditional feature buttons as technology evolves. According tomedia reports, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office recently announced the Apple headset’s new patent “headset rotation detection” – touch gesture control headset wearing problems.
According to reports, Apple’s new headset touch gesture control patent shows that the outside of the earcup is equipped with the expected touch panel and internal control circuit, but also through multiple sensors to detect the location of the ear, Apple’s new patent is to determine the ear position before determining the direction of the headset.
Apple’s new patent also shows a capacitive proximity sensor inside the earcup, which then automatically detects the user’s ear position in the headset, and automatically adjusts the touch gesture for a more comfortable wearing experience. To better position the ear, Apple will also add optical sensors and structural light sensors.
The inventors of the new patents for Apple’s headphones are reported lying to Brooke L. Bunney, Apple’s hardware system integrator, and Jonathan R. Peterson, a former hardware engineer at Apple, where Brooke L. Bunney previously patented the direction of the headset, while Jonathan R. Peterson worked on the audio product hardware team.
