Adjust AirPods settings with iPod touch
You can change various settings, including the name of your AirPods and how each AirPod responds when you press or tap it.
Open the AirPod case.
On iPod touch, go to Settings > Bluetooth.
Tap next to your AirPods in the list of devices.
Do any of the following:
Change the name of your AirPods: Tap the current name, enter a new name, then tap Done.
Change what happens when you press and hold the Force Sensor: (AirPods Pro) Select the left or right AirPod, then choose whether to summon Siri or change the noise control mode. To select which modes to use, tap a mode to turn it on or off.
Change what a double tap does: (AirPods 1st and 2nd generation) Select the left or right AirPod, then choose an option.
Turn Automatic Ear Detection off or on: Tap Automatic Ear Detection.
When Automatic Ear Detection is turned on, AirPods sense when they’re in your ears and automatically play the audio from your iPod touch. Playback is paused when you remove one of your AirPods. When you remove both, playback stops. When you have Automatic Ear Detection on and you’re not wearing your AirPods, audio plays through the iPod touch speakers.
When Automatic Ear Detection is turned off, all audio from your iPod touch plays to your AirPods even when you’re not wearing them.
Set Microphone to left, right, or automatic: Tap Microphone, then choose an option.
When Microphone is set to Automatic, either of your AirPods can act as the microphone. If you use only one AirPod, that AirPod is the microphone.
When you choose Always Left or Always Right, the left or right AirPod becomes the microphone even if you remove it from your ear or put it in the case.
