    How to customize the left and right double-tap controls on your AirPods

    Both your left and right AirPods have tap controls: Here’s how to customize them!

    ou can customize which AirPod does what, including playing a previous or next track. You don’t have to assign the same control to both AirPods, either. Here’s how.

     

    What features support the AirPods double-tap shortcut?

    When you customize your AirPods double-tap shortcut, you can choose from the following options in each ear:

    • Siri
    • Play/Pause
    • Next Track
    • Previous Track

    You can also disable the shortcut entirely if you find that you’re triggering it accidentally.

    How to customize the left and right double-tap shortcut for AirPods

    Your AirPods must be connected to your device in order to customize the double-tap controls. You can set up different controls for each device you use with AirPods.

    1. Launch the Settings app on your iPhone.
    2. Select Bluetooth.
    3. Tap the info button next to your AirPods. It looks like an i with a circle around it.

      Tap Settings, then tap Bluetooth, Tap the info button next to AirPods

    4. Tap Left or Right under Double-Tap on AirPod.
    5. Select from the available double-tap shortcuts.
    6. Tap the back arrow at the top left of the screen.
    7. Select the other AirPod.
    8. Select the same or a different double-tap shortcut (or the same one, if that’s your preference).

      Tap left or right, then pick a control

    Once enabled, you’ll be able to immediately use your AirPods with your new double-tap shortcuts.

    2. Tap Bluetooth.
    3. Tap the info button next to your AirPods. It looks like an i with a circle around it.
