How to adjust Apple Airpods settings

That’s it! In the settings menu here you can also make a few other adjustments. You can change what a double tap on each bud does, from skipping tracks, to play/pause, or even invoking Siri. You can also turn Automatic Ear Detection on or off. This feature will turn your Apple Airpods on and connnect automatically to your iPhone when you open the case and place them in your ears. Very handy! There’s also a setting for choosing which bud’s microphone will be used, also convenient if you like to roll with just one AirPod in at a time.

Apple Airpods or the new Apple AirPods 2 are a very convenient and seamless way to connect to your Apple iPhone, since they’ll link up as soon as you put them in. They’re designed to work perfectly with all Apple devices, so if you have an iPhone, iPad, or Macbook, these earbuds are a great choice.
