Soon you won't be forced to share headphones with your friend if you want to listen to music on the move.
The next Apple iPhone could have a dual Bluetooth connection, so audio can be played on more than one device at the same time, Mac Otakara reported, stating suppliers.
It is not clear whether all devices in Apple's new iPhone setup have a dual Bluetooth connection.

With this functionality, users can send audio to two pairs of AirPods at the same time or play a song on multiple Bluetooth speakers from different companies.
Another use may allow iPhone owners to send GPS directions to both headphones and their car's navigation system.
Should Apple decide to include such a feature, it would not be the first smartphone maker to do this.
Samsung phones with Bluetooth 5.0 come with a feature called & # 39; Dual Audio & # 39 ;, which allows users to play audio on more than one device.
It is because recent rumors suggest that Apple & # 39; s next iPhone could be used as a portable charger.
Apple is reportedly considering adding & # 39; bilateral wireless charging & # 39; to its next generation iPhone 11, with which you can charge other devices via the smartphone.

Well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of TF International Securities, who correctly predicted the tech giant's movements in the past, predicted the upgrade of charging in his latest note to investors, according to MacRumors.
Bilateral wireless charging, or two-way wireless charging, would allow iPhones that support the Qi charging standard to deliver battery juice to other devices.
This would be especially useful for users with Apple AirPods headphones from Apple, which now comes with a wireless charger.
With two-way charging, users can place their AirPods, or even another smartphone, on top of the next-generation iPhone to get a battery.
& # 39; We expect the new [late 2019] iPhone models to support two-way wireless charging & # 39 ;, wrote Kuo in the report, according to MacRumors.
& Although the iPhone is not the first high-end smartphone equipped with two-way wireless charging, this new feature could make it easier for users to charge the new AirPods and a better integrated user experience for the iPhone and the AirPods to create. & # 39;
In order to be able to charge in two ways, Apple should probably provide the new iPhones with larger batteries, Kuo said.
The batteries will not only become larger, but also in terms of capacity, he added.
Batteries for the successor to the iPhone XS Max will increase by 10 to 15 percent, while the batteries for the successor to the iPhone XS could increase by 20 to 25 percent, MacRumors says.
However, the successor to the iPhone XR will not see as much of a battery boost as Kuo expects the battery to increase by no more than about 5 percent.
Apple would undergo bilateral wireless charging for the first time in its device line-up if it chooses to use the iPhone 11.
In the meantime, other smartphone makers have already introduced similar functions.
Huawei & # 39; s Mate 20 Pro, introduced last September, has bilateral wireless charging.
Samsung then followed in February with its Galaxy S10 and S10 +, with & # 39; Wireless Powershare & # 39 ;.
It transforms Samsung & # 39; s flagship phones into mobile power banks, allowing users to place another Samsung device, such as another phone, their wireless earbuds or smartwatches directly on top of a phone to charge it.
HOW DOES WIRELESS CHARGING WORK?
Wireless charging as a concept has existed since Nikola Tesla, a Croatian inventor, first suggested in the 19th century that you could transfer power over two objects through an electromagnetic field.
The charging pad contains a loop of coiled wires around a bar magnet, also called an inductor.
When an electrical current from the net passes through the coiled wire, this creates an electromagnetic field around the magnet.
This can then be used to transfer a voltage [or charge] to the smartphone.
It is said that Apple is working on a charging system that works with 7.5 watts.
This means that it does not offer faster charging speeds than conventional chargers, which deliver 15 Watt as standard.
