Brett’s iOS Shortcut Tip: I created a shortcut to more quickly switch my AirPods Pro to my phone. I regularly use my AirPods to connect to my MacBook Pro, and my iPad Pro, and usually the AirPods Pro switch between the devices on their own. But sometimes it doesn’t switch as quickly as I want it to, or I want it to switch before I actually start playing music or tap “call” on a phone call. So if I have the AirPods in my ear, and it’s already attached to my MacBook Pro, I can now triple-tap the back of my iPhone to launch the Shortcut to “Get AirPods” to manually switch them over to the iPhone.
Jeff’s iOS Shortcut Tip: Another useful one-action shortcut: Get directions to a specific location. This tip is useful because it works even if Maps has trouble figuring out where that location is.
Now you can invoke by saying “Hey Siri, Bill’s Diner”
Another use: by changing the name of the shortcut, you can essentially come up with your own name for the location.
