This article describes how to personalize the functions that are given to the different motions that are available in AirPods Pro. Keep in mind that in order to support AirPods Pro, iOS devices must be running version 13.2 of the operating system. You may check to see if your device has the most recent update by opening the Settings app, navigating to the General menu, and selecting Software Update. Apple’s AirPods Pro wireless earbuds come equipped with a brand new and innovative force sensor that is located on each stem. This sensor responds to gestures, allowing you to use them to play/pause and skip tracks, answer and hang up phone calls, and switch between Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency modes.
By default, you may switch between the Noise Cancellation mode and the Transparency mode on the AirPod Pro by pressing and holding either of the stems of the headphones (you’ll hear a tone when switching between the two functions). Accessing the onscreen menus of your linked iOS device will also allow you to personalise the press-and-hold movements in your own unique way. This is how the process goes.
