AirPods have become in a few years the new must-have device if you want to fully enjoy hours of music playback from your iPhone, beyond the usual use for calls and stay in touch with ours.
Audio has acquired an important role in today’s society, so AirPods allow us to wirelessly listen to podcasts, audiobooks, as well as the latest social media trends with Flag y Twitter spaces.
Now, those who have traditionally used their iPhone’s wired earphones may miss the use of the button on the cable that used to mute the microphone or control the volume of the sound.
Successive generations of AirPods have improved control gestures. However, you might just want to turn up the volume of AirPods to a higher level. As you know, Apple limits the maximum volume in order to protect your hearing system.
Here are some simple tips on how to increase the volume of your AirPods. Specify that these settings are valid for any headset you use with your iPhone or iPad. Check out our
How to turn up the volume
If you’re new to using AirPods, it might not be so easy for you to turn up the volume of the audio you’re listening to without resorting to your device’s screen or keyboard. Here are the possibilities:
Use your iPhone
The easiest method is to simply use the volume up and down but tons on your iPhone (or iPad, iPod, or Mac if that’s what you’re using). This will automatically adjust the volume of your AirPods if you are playing audio.
Use the Siri assistant
Another alternative is via Siri. You just have to say “Hey Siri” and then when it’s in listening mode, command “turn up the volume”. If you own the first generation AirPods, Siri can be accessed by double-tapping any surface of the AirPods.
USA on Apple Watch
One of the simplest but best features of the Apple Watch is that it allows you to quickly change the volume levels of your headphones just by turning the crown or digital crown. Make sure the app that is playing audio is open on your watch.
Check the volume limits
Another reason you may be experiencing less volume than expected is that the “Headphone Security” option may be turned on. This is a system setting that protects your ears from loud sounds.
While we love to listen to our favorite songs at maximum volume, you should keep in mind that hearing damage is something we are not aware of and in the long run can damage our hearing system for the rest of our lives. .
However, if you want to disable this maximum volume limitation, you can go to “ Settings> Sounds and vibrations> Headset security ” and then make sure that the “ Reduce loud sounds ” feature is turned off.
Update or restore your AirPods
