The user can increase the volume by swiping up on the AirPod and Swipe down to decrease or lower the sound.

However, there is a chance of some users are comfortable with this feature, others may not. Currently, there is no way for consumers to disable touch volume control in iOS 16.0.2, the most recent and still-live public release of iOS 16. With ‌AirPods Pro‌ connected, launch the Settings app on your iPhone running iOS 16.1. Tap the AirPods Pro tab just under your Apple ID banner. Scroll down, then tap Accessibility. Scroll down again, then under “Volume Control,” toggle off the switch next to Volume Swipe.

If you have the second-generation AirPods Pro and are running the beta version of iOS 16.1, you can use a new toggle in the Accessibility tab to turn on or off volume controls for touches. Similarly to the original AirPods, the stems of the AirPods Pro can be programmed to perform several actions when pressed and held. This includes activating Siri, switching between Transparency mode, Off, and Active Noise Cancellation.

As of right now, iOS 16.1 is available for download by developers and members of Apple’s public beta program; a public release is expected in October.The upcoming iOS 16.1 update will provide a number of improvements, such as a new battery indicator and a toggle for AirPods Pro.
