Automatic Ear Detection

This is a very useful AirPods ear tip. By default, Automatic Ear Detection is on. This means when you take the AirPods out of your ear, the music pauses. When you put it back in, it resumes. This handy feature also saves battery. But if you are disturbed by the automatic pause of music and videos every time you take one pod out of the ear to hear someone talk, you may disable it.

  • Open iPhone Settings and tap Bluetooth.
  • Tap (i) next to the AirPods name.
  • Turn off Automatic Ear Detection.
  • Now, audio will continue playing even if the AirPod(s) are out of your ears.
