    Not sure if this has already been posted. The ability to skip and play previous tracks by tapping headphones is awesome. Customizable for each pod. So glad this is finally built in.

    In my honest opinion, Apple AirPods are AWESOME on any iOS that supports them....LOL

    Agreed, but the ability to skip/pause/replay tracks customizable for each pod is fantastic.

    I wish there was an option for skipping 15 or 30 seconds back instead. Skipping tracks isn't very useful for podcasts and audiobooks.

    I'm sure if you used it with Pocket Casts it would work that way. It replaces the default skipping controls with what you are asking for. Works on my other bluetooth items.

    Good idea! Maybe that will work. I do use Pocket Casts.

    Tripple tapping would make them even more awesome.... not sure why Apple stopped at double tapping.

    Because even double tapping is not as fail proof as you’d expect it to be.

    Mine is very consistent, probably giving me some brain damage from all the hard tapping but works every time.... even better than the wired pods. And ios11 is Beta, so testing some innovation would really be welcomed, although triple clicking is available on the wired ones.

    Apple’s own Podcasts app supports skipping 15 seconds forward and back. It looks like the Apple Air Pods don’t support it. Maybe in an update to the firmware?

    Those are the new pods from . They prevent lighting strikes while running in lighting storms. Or is it attracts? I forget.

    Aren't the wired headphones that plug into the lightning port called Lightning Pods? Or maybe I am making that up entirely.

    You’re making that up.

    AirPods for wireless and EarPods for wired.

    They are called EarPods with Lightning Connector.

    Thanks for setting me straight. Maybe it was Lightning Ear Pods that I saw somewhere.

    Anyway, sorry for derailing the thread.
