How to customize your AirPods settings

Nothing brings me more joy than double tapping one of my AirPods to skip a song while I’m on a walk. It’s the simple things in life.

That’s the default tap setting on AirPods, but perhaps you’ve wanted to tap to activate Siri, or tap to actually go back one song rather than skip forward. Well, you can customize those AirPods settings, and we have detailed steps on how to do it. 

How to customize your first- or second-generation AirPods settings

There are different settings you can mess with depending on what model of AirPods you have. For the OG AirPods wearers: 

1. Open your AirPods case nearby your phone, or put your AirPods in your ears. 

2. Head to your Settings, then tap Bluetooth, and find your AirPods among the available devices. 

3. Click on the little “i” icon next to your AirPods, and you should see all of the settings you are able to customize.

How to customize your AirPods Pro settings

AirPods Pro settings are very similar to the first- or second-generation AirPods, but it swaps the tapping customizations for Force Sensor customizations. To access them:

1. Open your AirPods Pro case nearby your phone, or put your AirPods Pro in your ears. 

2. Head to your Settings, then tap Bluetooth and find your AirPods Pro among the available devices. 

3. Click on the little “i” icon next to your AirPods Pro, and you should see all of the settings you are able to customize.

The available customization options are the same as above, and use the same processes. But instead of tapping customizations, you get:

How to customize your AirPods Max settings

Changing the name of your AirPods Max uses the same process as above, but these babies are the new kid in town, so they’ve got different customization options. The differences stem from the entirely different form factor, digital crown, and buttons. 

1. Take your AirPods Max out of the Smart Case while near your phone. 

2. Head to your Settings, then tap Bluetooth and find your AirPods Max among the available devices. 

3. Click on the little “i” icon next to your AirPods Max, and you should see all of the settings you are able to customize.

Available customizations:

For all models of AirPods, you can also tap “Forget This Device” at the very bottom to completely erase its pairing data from your phone. And if you happen to accidentally tap this, it’s not the end of the world. You can easily re-pair them the same way you would a new pair of AirPods. Maybe it’ll even make you feel like you just got a brand new pair!
