How to connect your AirPods or AirPods Pro to your phone will be covered first. On your Apple device, open the “Settings” app, choose “General,” then “Software Update,” to achieve this. Once your iOS device is updated, go back to the home screen and check sure your AirPods are charged. Apple often offers a sufficient charge right out of the box.
How to connect Airpods to iPhone
- Simply bring your iPhone next to your AirPods while they are still in the charging case, open the charging case lid, and place it next to your phone. After a little delay, an animated pop-up with the label “AirPods” and an animation of the charging case rotating and opening will display. A Connect button will be accessible below.
- Click the Connect button and adhere to the prompts on the subsequent displays.
- The Apple “Hey Siri” personal assistant function will be accessible on your AirPods after they are connected to your iPhone automatically if you have previously configured it on your iPhone. As you connect your AirPods, Apple will walk you through the Siri setup procedure if you haven’t already done so on your iPhone.
- As long as your phone was logged in at the time of the connection, your AirPods will automatically be set up with any of your compatible devices that are also signed into iCloud with the same Apple ID after you’ve linked them to your iPhone. Making switching between devices when necessary incredibly easy.
Troubleshooting Airpods connection
Use the accompanying troubleshooting advice if you’re having issues pairing your iPhone with AirPods.
- As previously said, you should check to see whether your iPhone is running the most recent version of iOS if you are having issues. You may verify this by choosing Software Update under Settings > General.
- Once your iPhone is up to date, check the status light to make sure the charging case is charged and both AirPods are charging properly. The status light is located on the front of the MagSafe Charging Case. The status light is located inside on the flat region between your AirPods if your case is a non-wireless charging case or on the front of the case if it has wireless charging capabilities.
- Navigate to Settings > Bluetooth on your iPhone or iPad to make sure the Bluetooth connection is on. Your AirPods must be connected properly for this to be turned on.
- Check to check if your AirPods are already set up as your favourite audio device if you notice that they are linked to Bluetooth. Swiping down from the top right corner of the screen on more recent iPhones or up from the bottom edge on earlier devices will do this in the Control Centre on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad.
- If the issue persists, shut the charging case lid on your AirPods and wait 15 seconds. Open the lid and click the little setup button on the outer back of the charging case after placing them near to your smartphone. The status light will then flash white, indicating that your AirPods are prepared to pair with your iPhone at that time. Now, as seen in the picture above, the connection animation should display on the screen of your smartphone along with a Connect button.
Resetting your AirPods
- To reset your AirPods, put them back in their charging case and shut the lid. Then, wait 30 seconds before opening the charging case lid once again.
- Open the Settings app on your smartphone, choose Bluetooth, and then hit the More Info option, which is denoted by a little I in a blue circle next to your AirPods.
- Choose Forget This Device from the list of alternatives and then click the button to confirm. After resetting your AirPods, you must re-pair them with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod. Simply lift the lid, depress the setup button on the case’s rear for 15 seconds, and wait for the status light to begin flashing white. The connection page and animation should reappear after you bring the AirPods near to your smartphone.
