Updated: Feb 20

We understand that everyone has to go through different learning curves. This is why we're always here to help. Did you know that it's definitely hassle-free to navigate through your AirPods? Trust us, even a 3-year old can learn it!

We'll guide you through how you can experiment with your Audio below.



AirPods Pro

  • To play and pause your audio content, press the force sensor on the stem of an AirPod.

  • To resume playback, press again.

  • To skip forward, double-press the force sensor on the stem of an AirPod.

  • To skip back, triple-press the force sensor.

  • To change the volume, say "Hey, Siri," then say something like "Turn down the volume." Or drag the volume slider in the app you're listening to, on the Lock screen, or in Control Center. You can also open Now Playing on your Apple Watch and turn the Digital Crown to adjust volume.



AirPods (1st or 2nd Generation)

You can use your AirPods to use Siri and to control the playback of audio content.


With AirPods (2nd generation), by default, you use Siri by saying "Hey Siri". And when you double-tap an AirPod, you either play audio or skip forward.


With AirPods (1st generation), by default, you double-tap to use Siri.


Regardless of which model of AirPods you have, you can set each AirPod to do one of these when you double-tap it:

  • Use Siri

  • Play and pause your audio content

  • Skip to the next track

  • Go back to the previous track

  • Turn off your audio content
