How do I pick up calls on my AirPods?

Answered by Cody Janus

To pick up calls on your AirPods (1st generation), you can use the double-tap feature. With a double-tap, you can answer or end a call, as well as switch between calls. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

1. Ensure that your AirPods are connected to your iPhone or other compatible device via Bluetooth. You should see the AirPods listed as an available audio output option in your device’s settings.

2. When you receive an incoming call, you will hear the ringing sound in your AirPods. You can either tap the green phone icon on your iPhone’s screen to answer the call or simply double-tap either of your AirPods.

3. To end a call, you can again double-tap either AirPod, or you can tap the red phone icon on your iPhone’s screen.

4. If you receive a second call while already on a call, you can put the first call on hold and answer the new one by double-tapping either of your AirPods. This action will allow you to switch between the two calls.

It’s worth noting that you can customize the double-tap functionality of your AirPods in the Bluetooth settings of your iPhone. By default, a double-tap activates Siri, but you can change it to play/pause, skip to the next track, go to the previous track, or disable the feature altogether.

In my personal experience, using AirPods to handle calls has been quite convenient. The double-tap gesture makes it easy to answer or end calls without needing to reach for my phone. It’s especially handy when I’m on the go or have my hands full. The seamless integration with my iPhone ensures that I never miss a call or have to fumble with wires. the AirPods offer a seamless and efficient way to handle calls while enjoying the freedom of wireless headphones.
