How to connect AirPods to a iPhone, iPad, MacBook or other Apple device

Points Highlighted:

  • Pairing your AirPods with all your Apple devices takes, maybe, three seconds. Seriously. It doesn’t matter if you have the regular AirPods, AirPods Pro or the AirPods Max. They all use the same pairing process. Then you add in solid battery life, impressive range and features like audio sharing and it’s clear why so many people have AirPods.

After unboxing the AirPods, unlock your iPhone then open the AirPods charging case next to your iPhone (you can also do this on your iPad). Don’t do anything else. After a second or two, there will be a pop-up on your iPhone asking if you want to connect the AirPods to it. Tap Connect. A few seconds later, the popup will display the current battery level of your AirPods and the charging case.
