This will connect your AirPods with your iPhone. You can also connect your AirPods with other Apple devices with firmware macOS Sierra, iOS 10, or watchOS 3. It also works with older devices and some non-Apple devices as well.
Common Issues related to AirPods
Let’s now discuss some of the common issues in AirPods faced by users. This will also give you an insight into whether you’d like to buy AirPods for you or not.
Many AirPods owners have reported that their AirPods battery is drained rather too quickly. There seems to be no cure of this issue. We believe that there’s nothing wrong with the AirPods themselves. Rather some components in the charging case of AirPods is to be blamed for this issue related to battery life.
Since AirPods are small, wireless but expensive, you wouldn’t want to lose them. If you’re a person who frequently loses things, you should seriously think about whether to buy AirPods or not. There was an app “Finder for AirPods” to help you keep track of your AirPods but unfortunately Apple pulled it off App Store. Those who bought the app got their refunds.
To reduce the chance of losing your AirPods among other articles, you should always store them in their charging case. Similarly, if an AirPod falls off accidently from your ear, the other AirPod stops working immediately. This in turn alerts you at once about the missing AirPod.
Automatic Call Disconnection
You can make and receive calls on your iPhone via AirPods. But it becomes rather annoying when the connection between your iPhone and AirPods drop all of a sudden. As a result the call gets disconnected. Below are some of the suggestions to fix this common issue:
- Rest the AirPods by putting them in their charging case
- Turn Bluetooth off and then on
- Restart your iPhone
- Check if the battery is low
Hope this post helps you fix common issues faced by you while using AirPods.
