If you’re not familiar with AirPods, or if you have an older generation, there are plenty of new features you’ll want to take advantage of with these headphones.

  • Tap Play a sound to help you find them.
  • You can also see the location of your AirPods on a map by tapping Find.

Ways to charge your new AirPods

How to control the volume directly on your AirPods

The new Pro’s touch control lets you turn the volume up or down by gently sliding up or down on the AirPods’ handle.

When your finger is on the AirPods’ grip, you’ll feel an area where the material is no longer slippery, but slightly indented. This is the pad where you’ll slide up or down to control the volume. This is great when you’re listening to something while working out or cleaning and don’t have easy access to your phone to control the volume.

How to switch between noise reduction mode and transparency mode

You can switch between a noise canceling mode, which blocks out a lot of outside noise, and a transparency mode, which amplifies some noises around you. The transparency mode of the new AirPods Pro is better than the previous generation. You can hear more of what’s going on around you.

To change AirPods settings on your iPhone:

  • Open Settings.
  • Tap the name of your AirPods, which will appear at the top of the menu.
  • Swipe between Turn off noise reduction or Transparency mode.
