Question: why does one air pod stop when I remove one air pod the other

When I remove one airpod from my ear the other stops playing. I thought you were able to use only one air pod.

AirPods, iOS 11.1

Hello Deannanel,

Thank you for using Apple Support Communities!

I understand from your post that when you remove one of your AirPods the audio stops. This is a feature of AirPods called Automatic Ear Detection. If you wish to only use one AirPod at a time you can turn off Automatic Ear Detection using the steps from the article below:

Turn Automatic Ear Detection on or off

By default, AirPods sense when they're in your ear and receive the audio from your device. AirPods also pause and resume playback when you remove one of your AirPods, or stop playback—and won't resume—when you remove both. When you have Automatic Ear Detection on and you're not wearing your AirPods, audio plays through your device's speakers.

When you turn off Automatic Ear Detection, these features are off and all audio plays to your AirPods whether or not you're wearing them.


Best Regards.
