How to Make AirPods Announce Calls on iPhone

AirPods have made life incredibly convenient. Since the iPhone 7, Apple discarded the 3.5mm jack, and wireless audio has been in vogue. Answering calls with the AirPods is much more convenient than taking a call on your iPhone or with a wired headset.

However, there is a way to make your call experience even more convenient on the AirPods. Usually, a call will interrupt other audio on your AirPods with the ringing tone. In order to actually see who called, you’d have to check either your Apple Watch or your iPhone. You don’t have to settle for that, though. Check out this handy way to get the AirPods to announce the caller instead. This would make the calling experience truly hands-free. Check out the instructions to find out how to do this:
