1. Open the case lid and make sure that your AirPods are turned on.
2. On your iPhone, go to Settings > Bluetooth and make sure that Bluetooth is turned on.
3. Hold the case lid next to your iPhone until you see the AirPods appear in the list of devices.
4. Tap the AirPods in the list and they will connect to your iPhone.

You can use your AirPods with other Apple devices that are running iOS 10 or later, iPadOS 13.2 or later, macOS Sierra or later, tvOS 10 or later,4 or watchOS 3 or later.5

Here’s how:

On your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or Apple Watch:
-Open the lid of your charging case near your device. If you have an iPhone with Face ID, double-tap the back of the case.
-Tap Connect when prompted. If you have an iPhone with Face ID and can’t see the charge status, make sure that your AirPods are in view of your device’s front camera.
-On your Mac, you might need to click Connect after you open the lid of your charging case.

If you’re using AirPods (1st generation) and have an iPhone 6s or later running iOS 13 or later: Press and hold the setup button on the back of the case for at least 15 seconds. This resets both AirPods and the case so that you can start fresh with a new connection.

How to use your AirPods with non-Apple devices

If you have a non-Apple device, you can connect your AirPods to it by using a Bluetooth connection. To do this, you will need to put your AirPods in discovery mode.

To put your AirPods in discovery mode, open the case—with your AirPods inside and make sure that both AirPods are in their charging slots. Press and hold the button on the back of the case for at least 15 seconds. If you see an LED light up between the charging slots, that means your AirPods are in discovery mode and ready to connect.

If you have an Android device, you can connect your AirPods by going to your device’s Bluetooth settings and selecting “AirPods” from the list of available devices.

If you have a Windows 10 PC, you can connect your AirPods by going to Settings > Devices > Bluetooth & other devices. Select “AirPods” from the list of available devices.

How to customize your AirPods settings

Apple’s AirPods have seen many firmware updates since they were first released, and with each update, new features and capabilities are added. One of the latest additions is the ability to customize the settings for each individual AirPod.

To do this, open the AirPods case and hold down the button on the back until the LED starts flashing white. Then, go to your iPhone’s Bluetooth settings and select “AirPods.” From here, you can adjust the settings for each earbud independently.

For example, you can have one AirPod play audio at a lower volume than the other, or you can have one AirPod play only the left channel of stereo audio while the other plays only the right channel. You can also disable noise cancellation on one AirPod while keeping it enabled on the other.

These are just a few of the possibilities — experiment to see what works best for you in different situations.

How to clean your AirPods

It’s important to keep your AirPods clean, especially if you wear them all the time. Here’s how to clean your AirPods:

-Remove your AirPods from the charging case.
-Wipe down your AirPods with a dry, lint-free cloth. Be sure to get in all the nooks and crannies.
-If you see any dirt or debris on the speakers mesh, use a dry toothbrush to lightly brush it away.
-If your AirPods are really dirty, you can gently wash them with soap and water. Just be sure to let them completely dry before putting them back in the charging case.

The LED on the front of the case will flash white, then amber, then back to white again to indicate how much charge is remaining.

-Second, make sure that your iPhone is updated to the latest iOS software. To do this, go to Settings > General > Software Update.

-Third, make sure that your AirPods are connected to your iPhone. To do this, go to Settings > Bluetooth and make sure that your AirPods are selected under “My Devices.”
