Can I disable AirPods Pro swipe control? How do I turn off swipe volume on AirPods Pro 2?
The second generation AirPods Pro features swipe gestures that make it possible to change volume levels via touch sensors on the earphone stems. By default, swiping up or down on the AirPods raises or lowers the volume.
For some activities, these touch controls can be invoked by accident. On an iPhone with iOS 16.1 or later installed, the volume swipe can be enabled or disabled depending on the user's preference. Follow these steps to switch off the volume gestures on AirPods Pro 2:
- While wearing your connected AirPods Pro 2 launch Settings on the paired iPhone
- Tap the AirPods Pro 2
- Choose Accessibility
- Tap Volume Swipe -> OFF (grey switch)
