How to control AirPod Pro – Use your Apple Watch to control AirPods Pro
If you have an Apple Watch, you can tap on the AirPlay icon in the Now Playing app to switch between noise cancelation and transparency modes when your AirPods Pro are in use. You can do this if you have an Apple Watch.
Use your Mac to control AirPods Pro
Your AirPods Pro work better when you use them with your Mac. You don’t have to squeeze your AirPods Pro to switch between noise cancelation and transparency mode. On your Mac, you’ll see an AirPods icon if your earbuds are connected to your computer and you can hear them. Then, click on it and change the mode.
Get the right fit by switching tips
In the box with your AirPods Pro, there are two extra sizes of ear tips. The medium size is already on the AirPods Pro. Make sure you try them on first. If they don’t feel right, you can change sizes. To get the tip off of each AirPod, you just have to pull and push to get it off. In the few swaps I’ve done, they always come off.
Do the Ear Tip Fit Test to find the best fit
It’s easy to do the Ear Tip Fit Test if you go into the AirPods Pro setting menu (try saying that out loud a few times). It will play some sounds through the AirPods’ microphones and then tell you if the ear tips you have in your ears are the right size.
To run the test, open the Settings app on your iPhone, select Bluetooth, and then tap on the I next to the name of your AirPods Pro to open the Bluetooth menu. To start, choose Ear Tip Fit Test. Then, follow the instructions on the screen.
I’ve run the test with both medium and small ear tips, and both worked. Both of them passed. So don’t feel like you have to use the first ear tips you try. There may be another size that works better and is more comfortable.
AirPods Pro custom controls
If you have AirPods Pro, you can do things that other AirPods can’t do. Follow the steps in the previous sections to get to the AirPods information page, then click on the AirPods link. These changes can be made:
- Controls that make noise cancel. During the Noise Control section, you can choose whether to use full noise cancellation, transparency mode (which lets some outside noise in so you can hear conversations and announcements), or not use any noise cancellation at all.
- Press and hold the options: that you want to choose, then choose them. You can press and hold the stem of your AirPods Pro to change the sound. This is where you choose what the press and hold will do. You can customize noise cancelation or start Siri with this.
How to charge AirPods
There are a lot of ways to charge your AirPods, like:
To charge with your phone. Put the AirPods in the charging case, then plug the Lightning cable into a computer, AC adapter, power bank, or other source of power. They will both charge at once. You can also charge the case on its own if you’re still using the AirPods and you want to keep them charged. The case can be charged on its own, but you can’t charge the AirPods without the case.
From the battery in the charging case. It will automatically charge the AirPods when they are in the charging case. The AirPods will charge from the battery in the charging case (until the charging case is depleted). There are many ways you can recharge your AirPods from the charging case. If the case is already fully charged, you can do this many times.
