But a few eagle-eyed users of the beta version of iOS 11 that’s being tested right now have noticed that you can program the taps for each AirPod individually, and that there are more options available. You can now set your earbuds to respond to taps that skip tracks and go back one song, in addition to pausing audio and activating Siri.

If you’ve decided to risk updating your phone to the public beta that’s available now, or if you’re reading this in the future (hello!), here’s how to change your AirPods’ tap functions:

  1. Make sure you’re wearing your AirPods and they’re connected to your phone
  2. Go to Settings
  3. Tap Bluetooth and look for your AirPods in the devices list
  4. Tap the blue “i” in a circle
  5. Set left and right functions from the “Double-tap on AirPod” section

Sadly, there’s no way to have the AirPods perform all of the new functions, but at least with the update, you won’t have to take your phone out of your pocket every time you want to skip a song.
