Flutter AirPods Plugin

pub package pub points

A Library for accessing AirPods data via CMHeadphoneMotionManager. Simplifies retrieval of information about currently connected AirPods.

It uses CMHeadphoneMotionManager, and gathering information starts as soon as the user puts the AirPods into the ear. Only iOS 14+ supports this functionality, so devices with a lower version cannot use this package. Also, for Android currently, there are no comparable headphones with that functionality, so there is no implementation for that platform. Only AirPods (3. Generation), AirPods Pro, AirPods Max und Beats Fit Pro are supported! Below is the complete JSON data that you can expect:

    // The attitude of the device.

    // Returns a quaternion representing the device's attitude.

    // Returns the magnetic field vector with respect to the device.

    magneticFieldAccuracy: -1,            // Indicates the calibration accuracy of a magnetic field estimate
    magneticFieldX: 0,                    // Magnetic field vector along the x-axis in microteslas
    magneticFieldY: 0,                    // Magnetic field vector along the y-axis in microteslas
    magneticFieldZ: 0,                    // Magnetic field vector along the z-axis in microteslas
    heading: 0                            // This property contains a value in the range of 0.0 to 360.0 degrees.
                                          // A heading of 0.0 indicates that the attitude of the device matches the current reference frame.

Before you start!

  1. Set the iOS Version of your project to at least iOS 14.

  2. Inside of the ios/Runner/Info.plist you need to add NSMotionUsageDescription with a reason on why you want to use it:

<string>Get AirPods movement</string>


To use this plugin, add flutter_airpods as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file.


Here is an example of how to use this package:

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      home: Scaffold(
        appBar: AppBar(
          title: const Text('Flutter Airpods example app'),
        body: Column(
          crossAxisAlignment: CrossAxisAlignment.center,
          mainAxisAlignment: MainAxisAlignment.center,
          children: [
              child: StreamBuilder<DeviceMotionData>(
                stream: FlutterAirpods.getAirPodsDeviceMotionUpdates,
                builder: (BuildContext context,
                    AsyncSnapshot<DeviceMotionData> snapshot) {
                  if (snapshot.hasData) {
                    return Text("${snapshot.data?.toJson()}");
                  } else {
                    return const Text("Waiting for incoming data...");
