Quickly play your favorite songs or start watching right after connecting your AirPods!


QuickPod has been designed to work as an Automation. QuickPod does work with any other type of Bluetooth headphones, however, it has been designed to work with AirPods.

What is QuickPod?

QuickPod has been designed to be the simplest and fastest way for you to start playing your favorite songs right after pairing your AirPods with your iPhone. If you have set it up as an Automation, a menu will appear right after pairing offering you to either select a song from Apple Music, search a Podcast, open Spotify, YouTube, Netflix, and much much more!

It does even more than that!

QuickPod can do even more than just playing Music or opening an App. For example: If you have AirPods Pro or AirPods Max, you can use the built-in Noise Control to quickly switch between Noise Cancellation, Transparency Mode, or just turn it all off.


Currently, the shortcut requires you to use iOS 14 or later.
