Top 14 AirPods Pro Tips and Tricks
In October 2019, Apple unveiled the AirPods Pro, an upgraded version of the AirPods featuring a modern design, and noise-canceling technology. A custom-fit with ear tips made of silicone, and a higher-priced.
We’ve put together 14 of our top Apple AirPods Pro tips to help you make the most of Apple’s latest and most potent wireless earbuds. Take a look at our video and keep reading; you may learn a new technique or two.
1. Get Your AirPods Pro in the Correct Way
Are you frustrated when you try to get every AirPods Pro out of the case? We’re here to inform you that “you’re not holding it correctly.” Apple has created them in that you must push the back of each earbud, which will rotate in between the thumb of your forefinger.
2. Allow Noise Cancellation for better audio.
AirPods Pro is Apple’s first in-ear headphones that feature active noise cancellation (ANC) that adjusts according to your ear and blocks out the outside world so that you can concentrate on what you are listening to.
ANC is based on an Ambient EQ feature which Apple claims can adjust the sound signal 200 times per second to maximize audio to fit your ear shape by using an internal microphone.
If you disable noise cancellation, Ambient EQ will also be disabled, meaning the sound quality is slightly degraded. To get the most out of your AirPods Pro audio experience, it is recommended to keep the noise cancellation feature on. By default, when you press and hold either AirPod Pro stem will cycle between Transparency and Noise Cancellation. You can also control the noise features using the iPhone and iPad.
- Open Control Center on your iOS device.
- Hold and press your finger on the Control Center volume bar
- Hit the Noise cancellation on the strip at the bottom of the page.
You can also manage Noise Control functions by selecting Settings -> Bluetooth and pressing the info icon (the circled “i”) in front of the AirPods Pro. If you have an AirPods connected to a Mac that runs macOS Catalina, you can manage it via the volume icon in the bar menu.
3. Click to check the status of the wireless charger.
AirPods Pro includes a wireless charging case, which can be charged using any Qi-compatible, third-party charging mats. The case comes with an interesting new feature that allows keeping track of the charging status anytime.
- The charging case should be placed upside down on a mat for charging – the light will come on for a short period and then shut off when it starts charging.
- To verify the charging status, tap the case using your finger to trigger the light to turn on.
- Be aware of the color of the light. Amber lights indicate it’s charging, while green indicates it’s fully charged.

5. Access Noise Controls via Apple Watch

8. Make Use of One AirPod to Increase the Listening Time
AirPods Pro offers excellent stereo audio. However, Apple has created wireless Bluetooth earphones that can use at any time.
- Place one AirPod in the ear of your choice and put the second AirPod in the case for charging, and the H1 chip will detect the one currently in use.
- If you notice the low battery sound coming from the AirPod you’re using, switch it to the fully charged model inside your charging case.
