earbuds are con-
resistant and ab-
solutely none of
the charging cases
water resistant. To clean your AirPods and charging case, use
two soft, lint-free cloths. Lightly dampen one cloth with fresh
water and carefully wipe your AirPods. Then dry them with
the other cloth. Do not use the AirPods or put them in their
charging case until they are completely dry.
Customize AirPods Touch
By default, double tapping
either of the regular AirPods
skips to the next song. If you
want to choose a different action
for your AirPods, go to Settings,
Bluetooth, and then select the
info icon next to your AirPods.
This option lets you customizethe action for both the right andleft AirPod so you can activateSiri, toggle play/pause, or go tothe previous track instead. Ifyou have the AirPods Pro, youwill see different customizationoptions (see next page for moreinformation.)
Unfortunately, you cannotincrease or decrease volume using the AirPods touchcontrols. However, there areworkarounds. If you have anApple Watch, you can adjust thevolume by rotating the DigitalCrown while the Now Playingscreen appears on your watchscreen. Another option is to use“Hey Siri” or activate Siri (seetip on touch controls) and askSiri to increase or decrease thevolume or set it at a percentageof total volume capacity.
Tweak Your Listening
Do you need to tweak the left-right balance of your AirPods?
Go to Settings > Accessibility >Audio/Visual to find and adjustthe left versus right mix. If youwant to customize the overallsound style of your AirPods,again from the Settings app, select Music, then EQ (for Equalizer) and choose from one ofmany variations such as Acoustic, Base Booster, Classical,R&B, and more.
