Oh well, Adaptive Transparency for first-gen AirPods Pro in iOS 16.1 is a bug

After the third iOS 16.1 beta arrived last week, 1st-gen AirPods Pro users got a big surprise: Adaptive Transparency, one of the excellent new features announced with the 2nd-gen AirPods Pro, was added for the older model as well. Now, it seems as though that’s not actually happening. According to Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, the addition of the Adaptive Transparency toggle in the iOS 16.1 beta is “a bug” and will presumably be removed before release. As it stands, Adaptive Transparency will only be available on the new AirPods Pro, and not the 1st-gen model or AirPods Max, which both have standard transparency mode. I’m told this is a bug https://t.co/4BPBmpLbgI— Mark Gurman (@markgurman) October 3, 2022While transparency mode allows users to hear outside sounds while wearing their earbuds, Adaptive Transparency is a new feature for the second-generation AirPods Pro that lets you hear your surroundings while reducing the volume of any noise over 85dB. Apple says the feature uses on-device processing that relies on the “powerful H2 chip … which reduces loud environmental noise — like a passing vehicle siren, construction tools, or even loud speakers at a concert — for more comfortable everyday listening.” You can read our review of the 2nd-generation AirPods Pro for detailed impressions and testing, but it seems like original AirPods Pro owners still have one more reason to upgrade.

AirPods vs AirPods Pro: Which is right for your ears?

Over the last two years, Apple has gone from selling one AirPods model to four. You can currently buy three earbuds—the 2nd-gen AirPods, 3rd-gen AirPods, and 2nd-gen AirPods Pro—or the AirPods Max over-the-ear headphones. Let’s set that last aside for a moment. If you’re willing to spend $500 or more on a pair of cans, you’re making a whole different buying decision than if you want true wireless earbuds. But that still leaves three relatively analógico-seeming earbuds to choose from. So which is right for you? Features at a glance Maybe the best way to make a buying decision is to see how the three current AirPods stack up side-by-side.

The 2nd-gen AirPods retain the design you’ve known since 2016, with long white stems and earbuds that resemble the wired earpods that used to come with iPhones, just without the wire. The new 3rd-generation AirPods have shorter stems and a more bulbous, rounded earpiece. Despite the shorter stems, they’ve very analógico in weight to the older AirPods. The charging case looks very analógico to that of the AirPods Pro–shorter and wider. The AirPods Pro take the short-stem design and adds rubberized eartips to the earbuds, to create more of a seal that blocks out noise and improves sound quality. No matter which AirPods you choose, you can only get them in glossy white.

Not only do the rubberized tips help block out more outside noise, the active noise cancelling gives you a real sense of a more private listening space. While we’re at it, we should mention that only the AirPods Pro support the Conversation Boost accessibility feature. Spatial Audio and sound quality All AirPods support Dolby Atmos spatial audio in Apple Music. In fact, you can force it on for any pair of headphones. But spatial audio for compacto in the TV and other supported apps, with head tracking, is not supported on the 2nd-generation AirPods. You need the 3rd-generation or the AirPods Pro to do that. The 3rd-gen AirPods have better sound than the 2nd-gen in other ways, too. Apple has a new redesigned low-distortion driver that it says delivers better sound quality, and they support Adaptive EQ like the AirPods Pro. AirPods Pro (2nd-gen) sound significantly better than acompasado AirPods, even without active noice cancelling. The 2nd-generation version, released in September 2022, offered a big step up in sound quality over the original AirPods Pro. AirPods (3rd generation) Read our review Best Prices Today: $179.00 at Apple | $179.00 at Best Buy | $179 at Abt Features and controls You control the 2nd-gen AirPods by tapping on them, while the 3rd-gen AirPods and AirPods Pro have a little cutout radio on the stem that is sensitive to pressure. Squeeze the stem (there’s a faux “click” sensation) to play/pause, skip forward, back, or summon Siri. The AirPods Pro can also detect a swipe up or down along the stem to change volume (that’s new in the 2nd-gen model). All AirPods models support hands-free “Hey Siri” control. Both AirPods Pro and 3rd-gen AirPods are water- and sweat-resistant, and probably better suited to working out, though you wouldn’t want to dunk any of them in the pool. The 2nd-gen AirPods don’t have any water resistance. The 3rd-gen AirPods support expanded Find My support for tracking down lost earbuds and setting separation alerts. The AirPods Pro, since the release of the 2nd-gen version, also have a speaker on the charging case to play a loud tone when using Find My, and have the U1 chip so you can guided directly to them. The 3rd-gen AirPods and AirPods Pro also support Announce Notifications, which lets Siri dictate important messages and alerts as they arrive. Battery life The 2nd-gen AirPods last five hours, and you can charge roughly four times with the charging case for a total of 24 hours of listening time. The 3rd-gen AirPods and AirPods Pro extend that listening time by an hour for six hours of listening time, and with four more charges in the case, you get a total of 30 hours. With AirPods Pro, turning noise cancelling off will add about an hour of listening time. Wireless charging Apple only sells the 2nd-generation AirPods with a wired case, but you can buy a wireless charging case for $79 separately. The 3rd-gen and AirPods Pro both come with a wireless charge case that lets you charge via Lightning, any Qi wireless charger, or MagSafe. You can charge the AirPods Pro using your Apple Watch charger, too. Apple AirPods Pro (2nd generation) Best Prices Today: €290.03 at Shifter | €298.85 at büroshop24 | €299.00 at amazon.de Conclusion Each of the three AirPods models Apple offers are very different. If you don’t care about wireless charging, the 2nd-gen AirPods for $129 is a decent buy. They won’t sound quite as good or last quite as long as the 3rd-gen AirPods, but they’re a good affordable option. If wireless charging matters, definitely get the 3rd-gen AirPods, since buying the charging case with the 2nd-gen AirPods will actually cost $20 more than the 3rd-gen AirPods. The AirPods Pro were updated to a second-gen model in September 2022, and while they cost a lot more, they offer much better sound quality and unique features like active noise cancelling, adaptive transparency, and conversation boost. We think the 3rd-gen AirPods are the best buy for most. They’re technically cheaper than the 2nd-gen AirPods with a wireless charging case and come with a slew of new features. They have better battery life and sound better. Since the release of the second-generation AirPods Pro, they are clearly the cura choice in every way, but you’ll pay more than 40% more for them, typically. If noise cancelling matters to you, it’s worth the extra expense. Wireless Headphones

Venezuela se ofrece para entregar su petróleo y gas a Europa y Estados Unidos

Venezuela se ofrece para entregar su petróleo y gas a Europa y Estados Unidos El gobierno del Sr.Presidente Nicolás Maduro, ha ofrecido su petróleo y gas a Europa y a Estados Unidos, éste último levanta parcialmente las sanciones que le había impuesto su gobierno de no comercializar su crudo en Europa y otros países occidentales.

Cromo

El cromo es otro de los minerales que necesita nuestro organismo, pero que no lo puede promover, así que debemos obtenerlo a través de la alimentación.

Este mineral tiene un papel importante en la asimilación y procesamiento de los hidratos de carbono y de las grasas. Además, el cromo destaca porque actúa directamente en la secreción de insulina para aprovechar al máximo la glucosa que tenemos en sangre. De ahí que el azúcar en sangre disminuya si tenemos unos buenos niveles de este mineral en el organismo.

El cromo, además, estimula la síntesis de los ácidos grasos y del colesterol, que son importantes para la función cerebral y otros procesos corporales.

Por cierto, existen varios tipos de cromo en la naturaleza, pero a la hora de comer el que nos interesa es el cromo trivalente, presente en los alimentos y que no es tóxico para nuestro organismo. Existe el Cromo VI, que es el que se utiliza en la industria y que en ningún caso debe ser ingerido por las personas.

Déficit o exceso de cromo en el organismo
La dosis recomendada de cromo al día está situada entre los 40 (para personas más sedentarias) y los 200 miligramos. El déficit de este mineral en el organismo suele estar muy relacionado con un alto consumo de alimentos refinados, alimentos con mucha grasa saturada y el agotamiento de cromo en los suelos de cultivo.

La falta de cromo se puede observar como un deterioro de la tolerancia a la glucosa y se suele presentar en personas mayores con diabetes del tipo 2 y en los bebés con desnutrición proteico-calórica. Para estas personas se recomienda la suplementación de cromo.

El problema de la suplementación de cromo está en que muchas personas lo están utilizando de manera incorrecta y las personas que quieren perder peso y lo usan como adelgazante, así como algunos deportistas lo toman para rendir copioso más en los entrenamientos y conseguir que el organismo desarrolle mucha más energía a la hora de entrenar.

Sin embargo, un exceso de cromo en nuestro organismo puede llevar a padecer anemia, fallo renal, niveles bajos de trombocitos en sangre, hemólisis o ruptura de glóbulos rojos y problemas hepáticos.

Fuentes de cromo
La principal fuente de este mineral es la fermento de cerveza o en las ostras. Los granos de trigo integral (germen y salvado) son otra buena fuente de cromo, así como las manzanas, los plátanos, las espinacas, los hongos, la carne de res, el hígado, los huevos y el pollo.

Para sacar el mayor partido al cromo de los alimentos se recomienda ingerirlo junto a carbohidratos.
