Apple launched the AirPods Pro True Wireless Noise Reduction headset in October 2019, and in addition to the updated design, it comes with custom silicone earbuds for $249 (The National Bank sells for 1999 RMB). With the product launch, many users and media commentators have started. Here are 14 “AirPods Pro Tips” from foreign media MacRumors.
(1) First, take out your AirPods Pro in the right way: Some people may feel uncomfortable when they take the earbuds, but this is actually Apple’s deliberate design.
All you have to do is push the back of each earbud and you can turn it easily with your thumb and index finger.

(2) Turn on Active Noise Reduction (ANC) for better sound quality: As Apple’s first ANC-enabled in-ear headset, it fits the shape of your ears perfectly and isolates external noise, allowing you to focus on what you’re listening to.
THE ANC is linked to the Ambient EQ function, which officially claims to enable 200 audio signal adjustments per second to optimize ear-shaped audio with a built-in microphone.
By default, you can hold down the AirPods Pro’s hook to switch noise reduction/penetration mode or control it on your iPhone or iPad.
The user can open the ‘Control Center’ on the iOS device;
– Press and hold the volume bar (an icon for a pair of earbuds can be seen after the connection);
Click the ‘Noise Cancellation’ option at the bottom of the screen.
You can also go to Settings – Bluetooth and click on the information icon next to AirPods Pro (circled i) to switch to noise reduction mode.
If you’ve paired Your AirPods with a Mac running macOS Catalina, you can control them through the volume icon in the menu bar.
(3) Click to see wireless charging status: The AirPods Pro comes with a wireless charging case that can be charged on most point-by-point accessories that are compatible with Qi wireless charging standards.
But the AirPods Pro’s wireless charging case also comes with another feature — checking the charging status at any time.
Keep the charging case facing up, the light will light up for a few seconds, and then turn off when you start charging;
To check the charged power at any time, you can tap the shell with your finger to let the light light on again;
Amber indicates that the charge is still on, and a green light indicates that it is fully charged.
(4) Activate noise reduction when using AirPods Pro in one ear: If you only want to wear one of the headphones, it can be quite useful for applications such as talk.
Go to the Settings app on iPhone/iPad;
Access to accessibility features – AirPods;
Click on the switch next to ‘one ear noise reduction’.
(5) Access the noise reduction control of the AirPods Pro via the Apple Watch: Many users know that the AirPods Pro can switch to noise reduction mode and turn it off in the iPhone’s control center.
But few people know that it can actually be accessed on the Apple Watch.
Make sure that the AirPods Pro is connected to your iPhone and that audio is playing;
Raise your wrist to wake up the Apple Watch;
Click the icon with triangles and three circles in the lower left corner of the Now Playing screen;
Click on your AirPods Pro in the list.
(6) Use AirPods Pro as a remote microphone: AirPods Pro supports Apple’s Live Listen feature, and even in another room, the pick-up audio can still be relayed to the earbuds.
Open the Settings app on your iPhone;
Select Control Center – – custom control;
Click the button next to Listen.
Then swipe down from the upper right corner of the screen to start the control center:
On devices with iPhone 8 or earlier, swipe up from the bottom of the screen;
Then click on the Listen icon;
Select Live Listen;
Keep your iPhone close to narrator.
(7) Share audio between two pairs of AirPods: If you’re running iOS 13.1 or later, Apple’s Bluetooth audio sharing feature supports pairing with the second pair of AirPods.
If you want to listen to music with people while you’re running, or don’t disturb your neighbors while watching movies on a plane, here’s how to:
Turn on AirPods and start playing audio on your iPhone/iPad;

In the audio playback control, click the icon with triangles and three circles;
Put your friend’s AirPods in a box, close to your device, and open the lid;
You should see a prompt on your screen that allows you to pair and share audio with the second pair of AirPods.
(8) Use only one AirPod at a time to extend overall battery life: AirPods Pro provides an excellent stereo audio output experience, but you can use only one at a time.
Put one AirPod into your ear and leave the other in the charging case — the H1 chip automatically detects the one in use;
When the currently worn AirPod emits a low-charge tone, swap it with another AirPod that is fully charged in the charging case;
As long as the wireless charging receiver box and electricity, you can continue to change this.
In addition, when using only a single AirPod, the stereo signal is automatically converted to mono output, so you won’t miss a thing.
(9) Adjust the duration of the pressure sensor: If you have difficulty operating the AirPods Pro with the pinching of your finger, try fine-tuning this option to see if the AirPods become more easy to use.
Go to the Settings menu on the connected device;
Select Accessibility – AirPods;
Change the press duration from ‘default’ to ‘short’ or ‘short’;
(10) Change the speed of the AirPods: Tap the joystick on the AirPods Pro to trigger pause, play, and answer calls, cut to the previous song in two strokes, and press three to the next.
As with the options for the pressure sensor, you can also adjust in the Settings menu if you are having difficulty pressing.
Go to the Settings app on the connected device;
Select Accessibility – AirPods;
Change the press rate from ‘default’ to ‘slower’ or ‘slowest’.
(11) Find misplaced or lost AirPods Pro: If you’re always unable to find or get the wrong AirPods Pro, you can see where it last appeared in the Find My app.
Open the ‘Find My’ app on iOS or access the iCloud.com in a browser;
Click on the ‘Devices’ tab at the bottom of the screen;
Click on your AirPods Pro in the list;
If you confirm that the AirPods are in your ear, tap Play Sound.
If you don’t know where to drop, the last connected location is displayed on the map.
Click ‘Direction’ to get the route to that location.
(12) Have AirPods Pro incoming calls: If you answer a call on an iPhone or cellular Apple Watch connected to the headset, the ringtone will be interrupted instantaneously, whether you’re listening or not.
Go to the settings app for iPhone;
Click on the phone in the list;
Move to ‘call notification’ under ‘call’;
Select ‘Headphones Only’ (ticks on when the setting is successful).
(13) Check the battery status of the AirPods: The user can check the charging status of the AirPods via the Battery widget in Today View on your iPhone.
But when you wear it, simply ask Siri, for example, ‘How much i have airPods,’ and Siri can tell the percentage of power that tells both earbuds.
If you just open the charging box, Siri also tells the box the percentage of power.
Also on the Apple Watch, you can easily see how much the AirPods are battery powered, whether they’re paired with your iPhone or directly with your watch.
Users can swipe up the dial, or swipe up in the app to call out Control Center, and then tap the Apple Watch’s battery icon to see the percentage value.
Your AirPods charge will be below the Apple Watch percentage and displayed in a ring. But if you put the AirPods in the charging case, you’ll see the percentage of power for both.
(14) Reset your AirPods Pro: If your AirPods Pro is in an unusual condition, such as not being able to connect or charge, refer to the following steps.
Put the AirPods in the storage box and close the lid;
Wait 30 seconds, then open the lid;
Go to the settings on the iOS device side – Bluetooth, click on the small letter i icon with a circle d’itary next to the AirPods;
Click ‘Forget this device’ and click confirm again;
With the AirPods receiver box open, press and hold the button on the back of the box for about 15 seconds until the status light flashes amber;
Open the lid, place the AirPods close to your device, and then reconnect the AirPods according to the steps indicated on the screen.
