    So I went onto the iOS 11 beta and set my AirPods so the right one skips songs forward and left one does play/pause.

    Over the weekend I downgraded back to iOS beta 1>iOS 10.3.3 beta>>iOS 10.3.2

    To my surprise the AirPods are still using the same functions right one skips songs forward and left one does play/pause yet these are not in the options at all.

    Has anyone else had this happened?

    I imagine somehow the controls are set into the devices themselves somehow...

    Probably the phone silently updates the firmware on them (like with the lightning cables or watch); and also likely not able to downgrade

    Firmware on mine still shows the same version as before the upgrade.

    This functionality can be altered in settings. But only in iOS 11.
