The 5 best tips and tricks for your AirPods

You can do more with your AirPods than you might think. We provide five tips and tricks that you can try out with your Apple wireless earphones.

1. Connect within three seconds

Do you want to connect your AirPods to your iPhone in an instant? Take the charging case of the earphones there, open it near your iPhone and you will immediately be asked on your phone if you want to connect the earphones. This does not only work on your iPhone, but on all (recent) Apple devices, provided that you are logged in to your iCloud account.

2. Save the battery

If you notice that your earbuds are running out quickly, for example if you make many phone calls during the day, there is a convenient way to save battery life. You can also use one earpiece as a Bluetooth headset. Keep the other in your charging case and change them if necessary. If you use one earpiece you still get both stereo channels through one ear.

3. Check the battery status

By opening your charging case near your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch you can see on the screen of your mobile device how long your earbuds can last before you have to hang them on the charger. You can also see how the battery life of the AirPods is in the battery widget of the Message Center. The battery life of the earphones themselves is only shown if you actually use them.
