This suggests that it means nothing more than noise cancelling off....It is much more than marketing language.
AirPods Pro and AirPods Max have three noise-control modes: Active Noise Cancellation, Transparency mode, and Off. You can switch between them, depending on how much of your surroundings you want to hear.support.apple.com
Thank you! According to Apple’s page, it seems that there is a third mode called Off that can only be activated with one AirPod in?Since the new APP are in-ear-style headphones the outside sounds are still muffled with ANC off. Transparency mode uses the mics to amplify everything around you a little bit
I don't know for sure which features will be missing if you're not on 13.2. I just read here (https://www.apple.com/newsroom/2019/10/apple-reveals-new-airpods-pro-available-october-30/):What am I missing out on by not using 13.2? I thought it was just the calibration tool and the hearing assistance mode.

"AirPods Pro require Apple devices running iOS 13.2 or later, iPadOS 13.2 or later, watchOS 6.1 or later, tvOS 13.2 or later, or macOS Catalina 10.15.1 or later."
It's my understanding the Pro features won't be enable and it will act as "dumb" ear buds.
This is simply not true. Noise cancelling certainly works, and I’m also able to turn it off or switch to Transparency. Not sure which it is, which is why I started this thread.Yup, presumably the "ANC" and "Transparency" mode will be missing so you would be stuck with the "Off" mode (so no smart features).
That’s what I see as well; I think what’s missing is true “transparency mode,” which I believe is different than just “off”...
In iOS 13.2 you will get this menu:I’m just curious to know exactly what functionality I’m missing out on.
No. There is a legit button for ‘noise cancelling off’ its in the center of the selection menu.Is it anything more than marketing language for “noise canceling off”?
