How to Disable Automatic Ear Detection on AirPods and AirPods Pro


Automatic Ear Detection is a feature that is included in Apple’s AirPods and AirPods 2, and it allows the audio that is being routed from a connected device to be switched over to the AirPods as soon as you put them in your ears. This feature was introduced in the original AirPods. This feature enables the AirPods to automatically pause the audio track when you remove them and resume playback when you place them back in their charging case, ensuring that you won’t miss a thing when listening to your favourite music or podcasts.

After connecting the AirPods to an iPhone or iPad, the feature is turned on by default; however, if you do not want it to function, you can turn it off manually at any time. This article will walk you through the steps necessary to turn off the automatic ear detection feature on your AirPods or AirPods Pro. So let’s get started:
