Why Are My AirPods Not Connecting?

The AirPods are one of the most technologically advanced products ever created, improving the quality of our lives. The AirPods, however, can become unreliable when they are unable to connect to your iPhone, Mac, or Device for a variety of reasons. 

The majority of these problems can be solved at home with little assistance. 

Researching this subject, I learned how to solve the problem and what causes it. 

Please review them below.

Why Are My AirPods Not Connecting?

Your AirPods may not be connecting due to many different factors, including being out of range, being out of charge, having an issue with your phone’s Bluetooth settings, the software being out of date, or having accidentally connected your device to another audio output device.

There is also a possibility that your AirPods may be damaged, and you need to have them repaired. You should be able to resolve all these problems on your own, except for the AirPods being damaged.

First, it is important to ensure that the AirPods are within range of the device you wish to connect. Bluetooth technology is used by AirPods to enable wireless connectivity. 

Bluetooth can connect two devices only if they are within 30 feet of each other. 

Due to this reason, you must maintain a distance between your device and the AirPods for them to be able to connect. Before connecting the AirPods to the Apple Device, you should ensure that they are fully charged. 

As the AirPods are wireless, they must be charged to function independently. Otherwise, they will turn off and will not assist you at all. 

The AirPods cannot function if their battery is low.

The device to which you are trying to connect may have Bluetooth problems as well. It is possible that the Bluetooth may not pair automatically or at all. You may need to unpair and pair your AirPods again to use them. 

It may also be helpful if the device is restarted or the Bluetooth is turned off and on again.

Preventing the AirPods from connecting. There may also be another audio device connected to your device. 

When a device is already paired with another, it is not very easy to connect to it through Bluetooth. If you wish to use the AirPods, you must unpair the other device and then pair them with the AirPods.

If your AirPods have not been updated to the latest software, they will not function. 

A new update may have fixed bugs in the previous one, or they may have changed the way they operate; therefore, the issue can only be resolved by updating your AirPods. 

To ensure that you do not experience any inconveniences, it is always advisable to make sure that your AirPods are updated.

Where Can I Find Out If My AirPods Are Updated?

So, how can you determine if your AirPods have been updated? Look at the firmware version on your iPhone. It is a straightforward and swift process. 

The procedure is as follows:

  • Go to the settings of your iPhone
  • And check the Bluetooth settings
  • Click on the ‘i’ next to the AirPods
  • To view the firmware version

It’s as easy as that. 

You are fine if your AirPods firmware has the most recent version. 

If this is not the case, you may need to update your AirPods to enjoy the latest features.

Can I update my AirPods?

Due to their technological nature, Apple AirPods require regular updates. 

If you are connected to your phone via Bluetooth, your AirPods are usually automatically updated. 

Also, the AirPods automatically update themselves when the charging case is near your phone and the AirPods are in it. You may need to make manual updates fewer times than often. 

So, here is how you can update your AirPods manually:

  • The AirPods should be placed in their case
  • It is recommended that the case be connected to a power source to ensure that the batteries are charged since this can take up to 30 minutes
  • when placed near the device to which it is paired. An active internet connection must be available on this device.

That is all there is to it.

How Do I Check the Battery Life of My AirPods?

It is easy to check the battery level of your AirPods. 

You must open the notification center on your iPhone and click on the options. 

To access the battery widget, scroll down.

Your AirPods battery level is displayed in this widget, along with the battery level of all the devices connected to your iPhone. You may also use your Apple watch to accomplish the same task.

With Siri installed on your device, you can issue a voice command such as ‘Airpod Batter’. Siri will respond with the battery level. When the AirPods are in the charging case, it is possible to see the charge. 

Depending on the battery level, different colors appear on the status light. For example, green indicates a fully charged device, and amber indicates a nearly charged one. 

If you are planning an outing or a trip, this information is imperative.

How Do I Charge My AirPods?

It has never been easier to charge a device thanks to Apple technology. 

Using the charging case, you can charge your AirPods by placing them inside it and locking them. 

Charge the charging case using a wireless charging mat or a USB-C and a USB lightning cable if the case is not charged. You should always ensure that your AirPods are adequately charged.

With AirPods and charging cases fully charged, you can listen to music for up to 24 hours or talk for up to 18 hours. With only one charge, a charging case should provide you with five hours of listening time or three hours of talking time. 

A fully charged AirPod can provide three hours of listening time and two hours of talk time when charged for only 15 minutes.

How many Airpods can I use at once?

Airpods can be used simultaneously. Apple’s incredible technology allows the user to use just one Airpod without experiencing much difference, making the product even more impressive. 

If you wish to preserve your charge and use them for a longer period, this mode may prove helpful. The AirPods can be charged by placing one inside the charging case and closing it. 

If your AirPods are in Stereo mode, they will automatically change to Mono mode, which allows you to use the AirPods as you please.
