If you don't want to use voice commands, there are still other ways of adjusting your AirPods volume. You can double-tap either one of your AirPods on its stem while wearing them and they will automatically increase/decrease their volume respectively. Another option is simply pressing either of the hardware buttons located on each pod which will also increase/decrease its respective audio levels accordingly.

Whether you opt for voice commands or manual adjustments via buttons or sliders, it's easy enough to make sure that your audio experience with Airpods is comfortable and enjoyable!

Controlling Volume on AirPods

To control the volume on your AirPods, you can use two different methods. The first is to use your voice by saying “Hey Siri,” then saying something like “Turn up the volume” or “Turn down the volume.” The second method is to physically adjust the volume slider in the app that you're listening to, on the Lock Screen, or in Control Center.

Double Tapping On AirPods

To double-tap on AirPods, you will need to tap the top of the stem on each AirPod. This is the small cylindrical portion that sticks out from the earpiece itself. When you double-tap this area with your finger, it will activate whatever action has been assigned to it, such as playing and pausing audio content or answering an incoming call.

Understanding Why AirPods Do Not Have Double-Tap Feature

Your AirPods may not be set up for Double-Tap, or the feature might be disabled. To enable this feature, go to the Bluetooth settings in your device and select your AirPods. Then find the ‘Double-Tap' option and make sure it is enabled. If this doesn't work, your AirPods may need to be reset by holding down the setup button on the case and then reconnecting them to your device. If this still doesn't work, contact Apple Support for further help.

Do AirPods Have Touch Controls?

Yes, AirPods (3rd generation), AirPods Pro (all generations), and AirPods Max all have touch controls. By using taps and presses on either the left or right earbud, you can control your music, answer, and end phone calls, activate Siri, as well as adjust the volume.

Lack of Double-Tap Feature on AirPods

The double-tap action is not an option for AirPods Pro because they use a press-and-hold action instead. This allows for more customization, with the ability to assign up to four different functions to a single AirPod. With this feature, you can assign the same function to both AirPods or assign different functions to each one. This way, you can control your music and calls more easily with just a press of your finger.

Whether you're listening to music or taking calls, AirPods provide a convenient and enjoyable experience.
