Image of secret Apple headphones accidentally leaked in new iPhone update
APPLE might have accidentally leaked what its rumoured over-ear headphones look like via an icon in a software test.
The icon was spotted in the beta version of iOS 14.3.

A video posted to twitter shows a magnifying glass hovering over the headphones icon.
The same short clip also features a suitcase and a backpack, which people are now linking to Apple’s rumoured “AirTags”.
These small tile devices are said to be in the works and are intended to attach to things like luggage or your keys so you can easily use your phone to locate the items.

The fact all these icons are in the beta version of the Find My app update means you might also be able to use your phone to locate the new headphones.
Some experts think the new headphone icon inclusion in 1OS 14.3 means that the headphones will be released alongside that software update.
There’s no word on when this update is officially rolling out though.

As with all rumours and features tested in beta, we won’t know any official Apple plans until Apple itself confirms it.
In September, a video claiming to show the rumoured AirPods Studio premium headphones appeared online.
Back in March this year, 9to5Mac found two other headphone icons in the iOS 14 beta.
Those icons appeared to suggest that the headphones will come in black and white.
iPhone tricks to try today
Here are some of the best…
- Typing cursor – When typing, hold down the space bar to turn your keyboard into a trackpad, letting you move around words and sentences more easily
- Close all Safari tabs – To do this in one go, simply hold the overlapped squares in the bottom right-hand corner, and press close all tabs
- Delete lots of photos quickly – Hold down on a photo and then drag your finger diagonally in Photos to select lots of images at once, then hit delete
- Convert currency quickly – Swipe down from the top of your Home screen (or swipe left to right on an iPhone X or later model), then tap in the bar and type a currency (like $200) and it will automatically covert to your local currency
- Check if you’re due a battery upgrade – Batteries inside smartphones degrade over time. Just go to Settings > Battery > Battery Health, and check out the Maximum Capacity reading. Generally a battery is considered worn when you’re down to 80% capacity. If you’re below, you can buy a battery swap from Apple
- Move apps around faster – Hold an app until it starts wiggling, then (while still holding) tap other apps, causing them to stack so you can move them around easier
