How to Reset Your Apple Airpods

Are your airpods not working or connecting properly? Try resetting them with these easy steps.

With the rise in popularity of the Apple Airpods, there were bound to be issues that came along with them. Whether it’s connection issues or sound not transmitting properly, most of these problems can be resolved by a quick and simple reset. Follow these steps to quickly reset and resync your Airpods so that you can get back to doing what you want to do.

Resetting your Airpods

Whether your Airpods are dropping connections at random times, or they just don’t work or transmit sound, resetting your Airpods is a quick and easy solution that will often solve the problem. Follow these steps to learn how.

  1. Go to the Settings on your Apple device
  2. Navigate to the Bluetooth Settings where it lists all of the connected devices.
  3. Find your Airpods on the list and click the information sign (circle with an ‘i’ in the middle) next to it.
  4. The next screen should display an option to ‘Forget This Device’ so go ahead and select that option.
  5. Put both of your Airpods into its charging case and make sure it has power.
  6. While the charging case is open, press and hold the small button on the back of the case for 15 seconds. The light on the case should flash white and then amber when it is completely done resetting.
  7. Close the lid on your Airpod case
  8. Open the lid and hold the case next to your Apple device to initiate a reconnection.
  9. Once your phone senses the airpods nearby, a screen should popup allowing you to connect to them.

After following these steps everything should be back to normal, and hopefully your problem has been solved. If you are still having issues you can try restarting your phone by holding down the power button. Oftentimes a quick restart can fix simple problems and get your device back to normal without too much hassle.

Another possible solution is to turn your phone’s Bluetooth off for about 10 seconds and then turn it back on. After you turn the Bluetooth back on, try manually selecting your Airpods from your devices then connecting to them. This should clear up any issues being caused by your wireless Bluetooth connection.

Ear Detection Settings

One final thing you can try if your Airpods are not working correctly is to check whether or not Automatic Ear Detection is enabled. Automatic Ear Detection is the technology that allows your Airpods to sense whether they are placed in your ear or not. Occasionally this can cause issues if the sensor isn’t working properly. In order to turn this setting on or off, follow these quick few steps:

  1. Go to the Settings on your Apple device
  2. Navigate to the Bluetooth Settings where it lists all of the connected devices.
  3. Find your Airpods on the list and click the information sign (circle with an ‘i’ in the middle) next to it.
  4. Scroll down to where the ‘Automatic Ear Detection’ option is and see if the switch is enabled.
  5. If it’s currently enabled and your Airpods are not working correctly then try turning it off and see if that helps.

Hopefully one of the above suggestions will help and your Airpods revert back to working normally. If you’ve gone through these steps and they are still malfunctioning then you may want to consider returning them or getting new ones.
