How to End Calls with AirPods

Share This:

Are you having trouble with ending a call through your AirPods? You’re not alone! Many AirPod users face this issue, but thankfully there are some simple steps you can take to solve the problem.

First, check the sensors inside your AirPods. These sensors detect wether they’re in your ears or not, and if they’re not, it could be causing the call to end prematurely. Additionally, if you have multiple Bluetooth devices nearby, this could be causing interference with the signal and impacting your ability to end a call properly.

If neither of these is causing the issue, try adjusting the double-tap function on your AirPods. To do this: open Settings on your iOS device; tap Bluetooth and look for your AirPods; tap the “i” next to their name; and then choose between “Play/Pause” and “Off” for the double-tap function.

Finally, to acually end a call through your AirPods Pro: press the Force Sensor on either of them; for 2nd generation AirPods: tap either of them; and for 1st generation AirPods: double-tap either of them.

We hope that these steps have helped you successfully end a call through your AirPods. If you continue to experience issues with ending calls, we recommend contacting Apple Support for furthr assistance.
