If you’re using Apple AirPods and want to get the maximum usage out of them, hopefully, the list of tips and tricks below will help you.
Whether you are using AirPods or not, saving battery usage is a huge issue, and if you’re an avid AirPod user, conserving the battery will probably be number one on the list. One way to save battery life is to use one AirPod at a time, and keep the unused AirPod in the charging case. Another tip while using one AirPod, try stereo streaming with one pod. The way the Pods are designed, the user can hear from both the right and left stereo audio.
Users can also regularly check the battery status of the AirPods and AirPods case, there are two options available: Users can either open the charging case near the iPhone which will display a popup with the battery status or add the Battery widget on the iPhone. The Battery widget will only include AirPods if you are actively using them.
The second tip would be to change the name of your AirPods, this should make it easier to find your AirPods when pairing them via Bluetooth to either the iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch or the Apple TV. To make the name change, go to Settings > Bluetooth on the iPhone and tap the blue “i” that has a circle around it next to “AirPods” this should give you access to make the change.
Another tip users can direct calls to either headphones or headphones & car, this way the user does not have to look at the iPhone. If the setting is changed to “Always” the iPhone will announce the caller, even in the case when not wearing the AirPods. If the user changes to “Headphones & Car” the iPhone will inform the user who’s calling when in the car and wearing the AirPods. If the user changes the setting to “Headphones Only” the iPhone will inform you who’s calling only when wearing the earbuds. To make this change go to Settings > Phone and enable whichever setting you desire. The last tip, AirPods can be paired with non-Apple products. Just place the AirPods in the charging case and flip the lid up and press and hold the small button on the bottom rear of the charging case until the little LED light starts pulsing white. The AirPods will now be able to Bluetooth pair with any non-Apple device. Hopefully, these tips will assist the user in getting more usage from the Apple AirPods.
