With "spatial audio”You can watch movies and videos on iPad or iPhone with cinematic surround experience. About this technology implemented by Apple on wireless headphones AirPods Pro si AirPods Max I've talked in before This article, in which I said that Netflix is preparing to introduce this feature for premium accounts.
As a brief summary, with "audio space" the sound field is remapped using the accelerometer on iPhone / iPad and the gyroscope on AirPods, so that the sound will dynamically follow the movement of the head and the device. The effect will be a sound placed anywhere in space, also following the movement of the sound source on the screen. The actor, the moving car or other elements.
By default this function is not activated for AirPods, but it can be done very easily from the settings. First of all, you need to have AirPods Pro or AirPods Max and a iPad or iPhone compatible with operating system iOS 14 / iPadOS 14 or newer. Models of iPhone compatible with "spatial audio" are starting with iPhone 7 or newer models. For iPad you need to have one of the models: iPad 12,9 inch pro (3rd generation or newer), iPad Pro 11-inch, iPad Air (gen. 3), iPad (6th generation or newer), iPad mini (5th generation).
Also, the audio-visual content must come from a compatible application. At the moment we find on Apple TV + and Disney + audio-video content with "spatial sound" and we hope that in the near future we will enjoy this experience on Netflix as well.
