When Apple first announced the original generation of AirPods, the product never ended up reaching the amount of sales and popularity Apple expected, causing them to fall out of the spotlight until consumers almost completely forgot they were available. Now here we are in 2019, with AirPods being one of the hottest products on the market, and millions of Apple users wanting them. AirPods have completely broken the internet, which has even caused Apple to create a second generation featuring Hey Siri capabilities and more. Sadly, with a price tag of $150 for the first generation and $200 for the second, AirPods are not your cheapest pair of earbuds. This simple trick for your AirPods will completely change the way you listen to music, and make that $150-$200 worth it.
Most users aren’t even aware of the simple double-tap function that their AirPods incorporates. Yep, that’s right. Your AirPods have double-tap controls on both sides that can be customized to control almost anything you’d like.
You can set your double-tap feature to control any of the following functions:
- Play and Pause
- Next Track
