1. On your iPhone, go to Settings -> Bluetooth -> Your AirPods. Click the i next to it.
2. Find Double-Tap On Airpods and select Off.
This feature actually turns off the AirPod double-tap feature and does not turn off your AirPods when you are not using them. At the moment, there is no way to turn off your AirPods – even if you disable your Bluetooth.
It’s unfortunate Apple could not incorporate a simple off feature and we’ll just have to get used to putting our AirPods back in their case when we are not using them.
