AirPods Automatic Switching feature

One of the standout features of the Apple ecosystem is the ability to seamlessly switch your AirPods between devices. However, this functionality has occasionally lacked reliability. For example, if you connect your AirPods to your Mac and begin listening on your iPhone, the AirPods will switch to the iPhone automatically. However, the reverse switch doesn’t always occur as reliably.

Apple is introducing a significant improvement with the upcoming update to AirPods, bringing Automatic Switching functionality across Apple devices running the latest software version. Now, when you’re enjoying media on your iPhone with AirPods and start playing another media on your Mac, your AirPods will seamlessly switch to the Mac without any delay.

Rest assured, if you prefer your AirPods to remain connected to the previous device, you’ll have the option to undo the switch and revert back to the previous device effortlessly.

It’s worth noting that this feature is not exclusive to AirPods Pro 2 but will also be available on select other AirPods models. Apple has enabled this feature by default, and there is no option to manually turn it on or off.
