The iPhone, iPad and iPod touch remember Bluetooth devices forever after the first pairing. For iOS users with a long list of Bluetooth devices, it might be time for some house cleaning. Removing old or unused Bluetooth devices from Settings can reduce confusion and simplify your life. Once paired, a Bluetooth device can easily be removed.
AirPods and headphones connected to the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch normally deliver audio in full stereo. In fact, even the external speakers on recent models offer stereo sound. However, there are times when mono audio may be preferred. One reason why iPhone owners might disable stereo would be to share AirPods or a single set of headphones between two people.
AirPods now have expanded control functions thanks to improvements in iOS. Apple has pushed several firmware updates behind the scenes, however the latest version of iOS brings more options directly to AirPods settings. AirPods are already known for high levels of customer satisfaction, and Apple continues to improve the product. So how can one take advantage of the added features in iOS 11 and later?
Apple Music fans can add songs to their library from anywhere. While this feature can be convenient, an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch can fill up with tracks quickly. iOS devices automatically download songs when they are added to an Apple Music library. If your device needs more storage, these automatic downloads can easily be turned off.
App ratings on iTunes can be helpful when shopping for an app. But it's easy to forget this when an app nags you for a rating with a pop-up window. Not only does it interrupt what you're doing, but these in-app rating requests can repeat in the same app. Although Apple limits rating requests to three times per 365-day period for each app, there's an easy way to abolish them once and for all.
