When you’re notified of an incoming call, do the following.

  • Quickly double-tap the outside of either AirPod to answer the call.
  • Enjoy your phone call. (Or not, depending on who is calling, I suppose.)
  • To hang up, quickly double-tap either AirPod again.

Bonus Tip:

If you’d like Siri to announce who is calling when you get a call, which is handy when you’re in the middle of something important you don’t want to take your eyes off of, like driving, do the following:

  • Go to the “Settings” app.
  • Tap the “Phone” menu option. (You’ll have to scroll down a bit to see it.)
  • Tap the “Announce Calls” menu item in the Phone menu.
  • Tap your selection to control when Siri will announce a caller. Options include: “Always,” Headphone & Car,” “Headphones Only,” or “Never.” (I always have mine set to “Headphones & Car.”)
