Find your AirPods

Although the size of Apple's headphones is one of the qualities highlighted by the company, the truth is that for many people it can be a problem. They are so small, that in many occasions it is difficult to find them.

Fortunately, to solve this problem, we have the Find My iPhone application.

To start, start the application Find My iPhone on your iOS device or go to the iCloud website, log in with your Apple ID and select Search my Iphone. From there, select your AirPods and see a map that shows where they are, or their last location before they went out. If you see a green dot next to the cone that symbolizes your AirPods, it means they are on, and you can play a sound to easily locate them. If they are off, the map will at least tell you where they were the last time they were working.

Pairing problems

If you can't get your AirPods to connect to your phone or tablet, the first thing you should do is place them in the charging base for about 10 seconds, then take them out and test them in your ears again. In many cases, that's all they need.

If this method does not work, the second option you can try is to enable and disable Bluetooth on your phone or tablet. Then repeat the above process and you're done.

But, if after trying the first two alternatives your headphones do not work (which is very unlikely), you can try to completely restart the AirPods. This is a general solution for many problems.

Computer connection

Although it is not a very common problem on newer Macs, it can happen. To solve it, you should try the same steps you usually do to connect to a phone, which is to rest your AirPods in its base for 10 seconds before placing them.

If that doesn't work, you should unlink them and pair them again, something you can do by turning Bluetooth on and off. You have to take into account that this could be a problem if you use a Bluetooth mouse on your computer.

In this case, go to the Bluetooth settings, look for the AirPods and disconnect them. Then, follow the same steps you used to link the AirPods to your computer.

Intermittent calls

One of the most annoying problems that AirPods have presented are intermittent calls. However, one of the best options that have been discovered to solve it is to try to take calls with just one AirPod in the ear.

If that doesn't work, there are other options you can try if you have an iPhone. First, open the application of Configuration and go to the section of Bluetooth. Next to the AirPods entry in the device list, you should see a cone "I" within a circle Touch it, then select the microphone and set it to the left or right.

In extreme cases, you can also deactivate the Automatic ear detection in the same section, although this deactivates one of the most convenient features and also depletes the fastest battery.

If you still have problems, you can retry the full detailed reset at the end of this article.

Audio issues

There are several causes that can cause problems in the audio of your AirPods. The most common is because of bad Bluetooth connections. If this happens in a specific place in your home, there may be interference, so we recommend that you simply move around.

Some users have manifested another solution that works: disconnect the Wi-Fi while making calls, as it is usually cause for interference.

Android volume issues

If you use your AirPods with an Android device, you will realize that the volume is not as high as when you pair it with an iOS device. This is because the headphones use the W1 chip, which Android devices do not have.
