IF YOU love jamming out with your Apple AirPods, then you need to try these tips to better your experience.
We have rounded up six cool tricks to help you get the most from your AirPods or AirPods Pro.
Use Active Noise Cancellation
One of the most notable features of the AirPods Pro is the Active Noise Cancellation (ANC).
When it’s enabled, noise cancellation blocks almost all background noise that you’d hear with regular AirPods.
This is ideal for those who work in a noisy office or want to block out sounds while commuting.
You can do this via a long press on one of the AirPods’ buttons, or your iPhone’s Control Center.
Get the right fit by switching tips
AirPod Pros come with extra tips in the box which can help you adjust for size.
The medium size comes preinstalled, however, if that is too uncomfortable for you, you can swap out for the small, or large.
To remove the tips, simply pull to slide it off and push to fit another pair on.
You can also find out which size is right for you by doing the Ear Tip Fit Test.
The test plays sounds using the AirPods’ microphones and then tells you if the ear tips you have installed are the right size for your ears.
To conduct the test, open the Settings app on your iPhone, select Bluetooth and tap on the “i” next to the name of your AirPods Pro.
Then, select Ear Tip Fit Test, and then follow the prompts.
Monitor AirPods battery life
Apple has two ways to monitor the battery life of each AirPod as well as the case.
The first is by unlocking your iPhone and opening the AirPods case next to your device with the AirPods inside it.
An animation will appear, displaying the charge level of each AirPod and the case.
You can also add the battery widget to your iPhone’s home screen.
Whenever your AirPods are actively paired to your phone, the battery life for each earbud and the case can be seen in the widget.
Ask your AirPods questions
Apple second-generation AirPods have “Hey Siri” support.
This is great news if you’re about to go on a run and want to quickly check the weather or maybe you just want a news update when you’re out and about.
When your AirPods are on and in your ears, you can just say “Hey Siri” and ask your question.
Siri will then reply through your headphones.
Make use of voice commands
Sticking with a similar theme, there are several useful voice commands you can use with the latest AirPods.
You can say things like “Hey Siri, skip this song.” or “Hey Siri, pause.”
You can even ask how much battery percentage is left on your AirPods.
Turn off automatic ear detection
Your AirPods are smart enough to know when they’re in your ears or not.
If you’d like your music to keep playing even when you take your AirPods out of your ears then turn automatic ear detection off.
To do this go to Settings on your phone and then click Bluetooth, the select your AirPods on your devices list.
Lastly, just slide the automatic ear detection off.
