One of the functions offered by the Apple’s AirPods is to be able to read the notifications that come to the iPhone with which they are synchronized and, in this way, know exactly what is happening without having to take the phone out of your pocket. This is quite useful, to be sure, but can sometimes be more of a nuisance than a help. Well, we tell you how to disable this option if you so decide.
As it is the predominant note in everything that is done in iOS, the simplicity It is high… And, furthermore, there is no risk of damaging anything because we are talking about actions that are carried out directly in Apple’s operating system. Therefore, you should not be afraid when trying to make this change (since, in addition, it is fully reversibleso if you are not convinced by what has been done, you can change it when you decide).
Disable reading notifications on AirPods
There are three types of settings that set the behavior when this function is active. These range from reading everything that comes from applications that are compatible (not all of them offer this), to filtering so that you personally decide what you will listen to or not.
But in the case that it does not occupy, what you will do is that don’t listen to anything that comes to the smartphone and, in this way, that these headphones behave like a traditional model. You can do this by taking these steps:
- Open the Settings app as normal on iPhone. An example is using the icon that has a cogwheel shape.
- Now you will see all the options that iOS offers, but the one that interests you is the one called Notifications. When you find it, click on it.
- Look for a slider called Announce notifications and disable it (tap on it to change it from green to gray).
- Once this is done, you are done and, from this moment on, the AirPods will no longer read a notification that arrives on the phone.
It is important that you know that the function we are talking about runs only when you have Apple headphones on, so you shouldn’t be afraid that a notification will be read without you knowing about it (but, be careful, if someone else is using them, this will be the one who listens to everything). The truth is that, for moments of intense concentration, such as when working or playing sports, carrying out the process that we have indicated in the AirPods is an excellent idea.
