Apple patents AirPods with biometric sensors

December 4, 2018

Apple patented earbuds that can identify which ear they’re in. The goal is to allow a single design that can be used in both ears, reducing the production cost. This solution would also allow to use “at least one” biometric sensor for health tracking. Knowing the position of the earbuds allows to update the parameters of the sensors to sense the vitals in an optimal way.
