Use Siri with AirPods on iPad
You can use Siri with your AirPods to ask questions and do tasks.
Summon Siri with your voice (AirPods Pro and AirPods 2nd generation)
While wearing one or both AirPods, say “Hey Siri,” then ask Siri a question or to do a task for you.
For example, say something like “Hey Siri, how’s the weather today?” or “Hey Siri, let’s hear the Acoustic playlist.”
Note: If you didn’t set up “Hey Siri,” go to Settings > Siri & Search, then turn on Listen for “Hey Siri.”
Summon Siri with your touch
AirPods Pro: You can set either of your AirPods to summon Siri when you press and hold the Force Sensor.
AirPods: (2nd generation) You can set either of your AirPods to summon Siri when you double-tap it.
AirPods: (1st generation) By default, a double tap on an AirPod summons Siri (but you can change this behavior in Settings).
Note: If you haven’t turned on Siri, go to Settings > Siri & Search, then turn on Press Home for Siri (models with the Home button) or Press Top Button for Siri (other models).
Listen and respond to messages (AirPods Pro and AirPods 2nd generation)
With Announce Messages, you can hear your messages over your AirPods. When your iPad is locked, your AirPods are connected to it, and a message arrives, a chime sounds and Siri begins to read the message (iPadOS 13.2).
To stop Siri from reading, you can do one of the following:
Remove an AirPod.
Say something like “Stop” or “Cancel.”
Press the Force Sensor on an AirPod (AirPods Pro), or double-tap an AirPod (2nd generation).
To reply to the message, say something like “Reply that’s great news.”
Siri repeats what you said, then asks for confirmation before sending your reply. To send replies without waiting for confirmation, go to Settings > Siri & Search > Announce Messages, then turn on Reply without Confirmation.
Note: If you didn’t turn on Announce Messages when you set up your AirPods, go to Settings > Siri & Search > Announce Messages, then turn on Announce Messages with Siri.
