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.
Back in the day, iOS always showed On/Off Labels on toggles, making various Settings appear like a power switch. More recent versions of iOS have removed this indicator, opting instead for a more clean-looking design. For those who could use an additional visual cue besides the color green, or simply enjoy the old look, it's possible to restore these labels.
Apps tend to pile up on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Some apps are even downloaded and never used at all. Clearing out those apps that are not frequently used can simplify your iOS device and free up extra storage space. Apple makes it easy to see the last time an app was launched, which can help get rid of clutter.
