MacDailyNews Take: Currently, with iOS 10, users of AirPods can double-tap to use Siri or use the phone. While wearing either AirPod, two quick, sharp taps on the outside of that AirPod will activate Siri or use the phone.

Users can also change settings so that a double tap plays/pauses music instead or turn off double tap functionality completely by opening the AirPod Case, then going to Settings > Bluetooth > AirPods on their iOS device.
