How to clean your Airpods
If your AirPods are dirty, then you may notice sound quality issues or a decline in how well they fit in your ears. If you think that your AirPods need a little bit of a clean, then follow these steps.
Before you start cleaning your AirPods, make sure to power them off. Then, use a soft, dry, lint-free cloth to wipe them down. Be sure to avoid getting any moisture on the cloth— if you do, make sure to dry it off before continuing. You can also use this opportunity to clean the charging case.
Once you’ve wiped down your AirPods and charging case with the dry cloth, you can move on to using a slightly dampened one. Use distilled water or Apple-approved cleaning solutions— avoid using household cleaners, as they may damage your AirPods. Gently wipe down the surfaces of your AirPods and charging case until they’re clean.
Once you’re finished cleaning, be sure to dry everything off completely before putting your AirPods back in the charging case. If you want to disinfect your AirPods or charging case, then you can use 70 percent isopropyl alcohol wipes; just be sure not to get any moisture inside of the charging case— doing so could damage your AirPods.
How to troubleshoot your Airpods
If your AirPods are having trouble connecting to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, make sure that your device is near your AirPods, within Bluetooth range. If you can’t connect to your AirPods, get help with connecting.
If you’re using your AirPods with a Mac that doesn’t have the latest version of macOS, or if you’re using an older model of AirPods, you might be able to use a 3.5mm audio cable to play audio from your device. Just plug the cable into the headphone jack on your device and the Lightning connector on the case.
If one or both of your AirPods aren’t receiving audio from your device, make sure that both AirPods are in your ears. If you’re using one AirPod and you see a yellow light next to the other one in the Find My iPhone app , it means that the second AirPod isn’t in its case but is still connected to your iOS device.
If you see an amber light next to an AirPod in the Find My iPhone app , it means that the battery on that particular airpod is critically low and you should put it back in its case to charge.
If one of your airpods isn’t playing audio or acting Strangely (like making static noises), there might be something wrong with that particular airpod. To find out which airpod is causing the problem:
1)Put both airpods in their case
2)Connect the case to power and wait for 5 minutes
3)Open the lid and check if both airpods have green lights next to them
4) If only one airpod has a green light, then that’s probably the problem airpod
5) If both airpods have green lights next to them then there might be dirt or debris in one of the airpods earbuds
