While some notifications may be useful, others can be distracting. For example, if you’re listening to an inspiring podcast or doing a guided meditation, it would be disruptive to hear Siri read a text message or other notification. This issue is even more annoying when it happens frequently. However, you can prevent it from occurring by changing a setting on your iPhone. This article will show you how to turn off airpod notifications on mac.

In the Settings app, find and tap “Announce Notifications.” Toggle “Allow Calls to Be Announced through AirPods” to On (it’s by default). This will make it so that any calls you receive will be announced by Siri when your earbuds are connected.

You can also change the options here to your liking: Always, Headphones Only, or Never. Choose which option you want, and the next time you connect your earbuds to your phone, it will remember your preference.

If you ever change your mind, you can access these settings again by opening the Control Center and swiping down on your earbuds. From there, you can mute notifications for an hour or until you disconnect your headphones. Alternatively, you can reset your earbuds by using the Find My app on your iPhone and tapping your name in the list of connected devices. Lastly, you can disable the “Notify When Left Behind” feature in the settings for your earbuds by accessing the Find My app and selecting the Devices tab.
