Apple AirPods

Apple Airpods are packed like any other Bluetooth device. However, unlike other Bluetooth devices, AirPods automatically connect to all of your Apple devices when you switch to them. No need to remove AirPods from one device and pair them with another before you can use them.

Reset Apple AirPods

Apple AirPods can be in trouble when connecting to a device in which they were packed. One of the easiest ways to fix this problem is to reset the AirPods, and pair and reconnect. To reset AirPods, you need to have their charging case at hand.

  1. Put both AirPods in their case.
  2. Close the lid and keep it closed for 30 seconds (do it a minute if you want to be sure).
  3. Open the lid.
  4. On your iPhone, open the Settings app and go to Bluetooth.
  5. Next to your AirPods, tap the i button.
  6. Select the Forget this tool option.
  7. Confirm that you want to forget the device.
  8. On the AirPods case, press and hold the set button until the light on the case flashes white (usually in 15 seconds).
  9. The AirPods will be reset and you can reattach them to your iPhone.

Trouble connecting AirPods

AirPods generally work well with Apple devices, and easily connect with non-Apple devices. Here are a few things you can try if you regularly have trouble connecting AirPods after they have been packed into your iPhone.

  • Restart the iPhone.
  • If an iOS update is coming, install it.
  • Make sure the AirPods are fully charged or set to 100%
  • Try disconnecting other Bluetooth devices that are connected or paired to your iPhone.


AirPods can work with both Apple and non-Apple devices but you get the most out of them when you use them within Apple’s echo and device operating systems. The disconnection problems are often caused by too many Bluetooth devices connected to the same device or multiple Bluetooth devices working nearby. If you have more than one pair of Bluetooth headphones connected or paired with your system, remove the other pair and leave only the AirPods. AirPods, regardless of generation, are all reset in the same way.
