Frequently Asked Questions
Q1. How to disable the announce messages feature on Airpod?
Ans. If you’re not a fan of the announce messages feature on your AirPods, you can easily disable it. Here’s how:
- Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
- Go down and Click on Sounds & Haptics.
- Under the “System” section, disable the toggle for Announce Messages.
- That’s all there is to it! With this setting disabled, your AirPods will no longer announce when you receive a new message.
Q2. Airpods detected near me; what does it mean?
Ans. If you’re lucky enough to have AirPods, you know they’re great for listening to music and making phone calls. But did you know that this feature can also detect other AirPods nearby?
If you have your AirPods turned on and open the Find My iPhone app, you’ll see a map with the location of your AirPods. But if you zoom in, you’ll also see any other AirPods that are within range.
So what does this mean? If you lose your AirPods, you can use the Find My iPhone app to help you find them.
And if you see someone else’s AirPods on the map, you can be pretty sure they’re in the vicinity. Of course, this isn’t a perfect system. AirPods can only be detected if they’re turned on and within range.
And if someone else happens to have their AirPods turned on and in the same general area as you, their AirPods will show up on your map.
But it’s still helpful, especially if you’re trying to find your lost AirPods. So next time you see a bunch of AirPods on the map, you’ll know what it means!
