    how to change airpod name: How to customize your AirPods and change their name

    How do you rename your AirPods, change their double-tap shortcuts, use automatic ear detection, and more? In Bluetooth Settings, of course!

    apple’s new AirPods are an amazing set of wireless headphones that let you talk and listen on your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, and Mac — or any Bluetooth compatible device — without having to deal with cords. You can even configure them to make them work just exactly the way you want. Once you figure out where the settings are hidden, of course!

    If you’ve got a pair of AirPods 2, don’t forget that you can use Hey Siri to trigger playback controls and a whole lot more.

    How to rename your AirPods

    Apple will assign a default name to your AirPods the first time you pair them with your iPhone. If you want to give them a different name, though, you can change it at any time.

    1. Launch Settings from your iPhone’s Home screen.
    2. Tap on Bluetooth.
    3. Tap on the current name of your AirPods under My Devices.
    4. Tap on Name.
    5. Edit the Name to your liking.
    6. Tap on the Back button (looks like < ).

    How to set the double-tap shortcut on your AirPods

    How to choose which microphone is used by your AirPods

    When you wear AirPods, you have two beam-forming microphones available for phone calls and Siri commands. Normally, AirPods will automatically switch between the mics depending on which has the best input, but if you’d rather set it and forget it, you can do that too.

    This is also the microphone that Siri will use to listen for your trigger word on AirPods 2.

    1. Launch Settings from your iPhone’s Home screen.
    2. Tap on Bluetooth.
    3. Tap on Microphone.
    4. Choose the setting your prefer: Automatically Switch AirPods, Always Left AirPod, Always Right AirPod.
    5. Tap on the Back button (looks like < ).
