Are you constantly getting notifications on your iPhone or iPad that you can’t hear? Or maybe you’re missing important messages because they aren’t audible? If so, then AirPods Notifications are the perfect solution for you.

AirPods Notifications is an iOS feature that allows iPhone and iPad users to receive audible notifications when their AirPods are connected. When enabled, AirPods Notifications will announce incoming notifications from apps such as Messages, Calendar, Reminders, Mail and more. That way, you won’t miss any important updates or messages that are sent to your device.

To enable AirPods Notifications on your device, go to Settings > Notifications > Messages. Then turn on Announce Notifications. You can also choose which kinds of notifications you want announced by tapping on “Announce Notifications” in the same menu and toggling it on or off.

Once enabled, AirPods Notifications will announce incoming notifications using Siri’s distinctive voice. For example, if you have a new message from a friend or family member it will say “You have a new message from [Name]” followed by a bief preview of the message itself.

It’s important to note that if you receive multiple notifications at once, Siri may not be able to announce all of them. To avoid this issue, take out one of your earbuds or remove your headphones before the notification arrives so that only one notification is heard at a time.

With AirPods Notifications enabled on your device, you’ll never miss an important update or message again! Whether it’s a text from a friend or an email from work, now you can stay up-to-date with all of the information coming into your device wihout having to worry about missing something important due to low audio volume or other factors.
