How to Reset AirPods
If you’ve recently bought a pair of AirPods and have found that you’re no longer able to hear anything through them, you may wonder how to reset them. The first thing to do is to put them back into their charging case and then press and hold the setup button on the AirPods for 15 seconds. After that, you’ll see the status light turn white and you’ve successfully reset the AirPods. You can then customize the resulting new pair of headphones in just a few minutes.
If your AirPods have problems syncing with another device, you can reset them to factory settings. You may also need to reset your AirPods to fix an audio issue.
If your AirPods are no longer working properly, one of the best ways to fix them is to reset them. Factory resets can fix a variety of software issues, from audio degradation to connectivity issues. These problems are usually caused by the AirPods not connecting to your device properly.
Resetting Automatic Ear Detection
If you’re having trouble with Automatic Ear Detection on your AirPods, you can turn off the feature in your phone’s settings. However, doing so disables one of the most convenient features, and will also drain the battery faster. If you still have issues, you can try a full reset. This method is described in more detail below.
Resetting Wi-Fi on AirPods is an easy way to resolve a connection problem. Sometimes, background processes consume the resources in the device and cause Bluetooth connectivity to be unstable. Resetting the device will clear the RAM and reset the system programming.
Cleaning the charging case
If your AirPods have stopped charging, the first step to solve the problem is cleaning the charging case. Dust and grime can collect on the tips and make them unchargeable. You can use a Q-tip to clean the contacts. You should be careful not to touch the charging pins. Another option for cleaning the charging case is to use a toothpick dipped in isopropyl alcohol. You can also wipe the case dry with a paper towel.
When the AirPods don’t pair, you can perform a direct reboot by pressing the Digital Crown and Noise control buttons together for at least seven seconds. Once the LED indicator turns white, the AirPods should be ready to pair again. However, you should note that a direct reboot won’t always solve your problem.
