Turn your Bluetooth on

Open the setting application on your phone and under the Bluetooth menu, click the switch. It will turn to a green color indicating that the Bluetooth is on. Turning the Bluetooth on allows your iPhone to connect to any iPhone accessories that are within its range.

Charge your Airpods and the charging case.

Putting the Airpods in the charging case enables them to draw out charge from the battery inbuilt in the charging case.

The 24-hour battery ensures that you get functionality from your Airpods when you need them.  The charging case is charged by plugging one end of the lightning connector into the charging case and the other end into a USB port.

Clean your Airpods and charging case

You might be having problems with connecting your Airpods to your iPhone because dust has gotten into the Airpods or the charging case and affecting their functionality. You should use a soft cloth to gently wipe your Airpods. Be careful to not get moisture into these iPhone accessories.

Ensure your Airpods are in range of your iPhone

Apple developed these iPhone accessories to connect to your iPhone by use of the Bluetooth technology and it requires devices to be within a close range for it to function effectively. On the home screen, open the control center and swipe right to left till you get to the audio interface. Tap on the audio output button and if your Airpods are not listed then they are out of range.

Put your Airpods into Bluetooth pairing mode

Putting your Airpods into Bluetooth pairing mode enables a user to connect their Airpods to other Bluetooth devices not linked to one’s iCloud account. You should then go ahead to pair your iPhone with the Bluetooth device.

Reset all settings

Resetting all settings restores everything on your phone’s settings applications to factory defaults and this might solve some of the problems in your iPhone. To reset your iPhone, on the settings applications tap on general and then select reset all settings.

Repair your Airpods

If your Airpods are still not working by the time you get to this stage, you might need to repair your Airpods. Return them to the Apple store where you purchased them and get an exchange.
