Apple's AirPods will be gaining a new Fan Base this fall when iOS 12 adds their 'Live Listen' Feature
According to TechCrunch, "Apple has one hardware-specific feature planned that wasn't announced at Monday's WWDC keynote. In iOS 12, users will be able to use 'Live Listen,' a special feature previously reserved for hearing aids certified through Apple's Made for iPhone hearing aid program, with their AirPods.
After enabling the feature in the iPhone's settings, users will be able to use their phones effectively as a directional mic. This means you can have AirPods in at a noisy restaurant with your iPhone on the table, for example, and the voice of whomever is speaking will be routed to your AirPods.
