How to Reconnect AirPods After Forgetting Device

If you're having trouble connecting your AirPods after forgetting device, there are several troubleshooting steps you can try before calling Apple Support. First, make sure that your AirPods and charging case are charged and Bluetooth is enabled on your iPhone or iPad. Next, update your iOS version if necessary. This can include bug fixes that could help with connection issues. If that doesn't work, try restarting your AirPods and resetting their Bluetooth pairing. Lastly, check your AirPods' status light. It should be white if the AirPods and case are connected and ready to connect.

If your AirPods are paired with another device, disconnecting them may solve the problem. Open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad and tap the i icon next to your AirPods. Tap Forget This Device to remove them from the list of paired devices. After that, you can pair them with a new device.

You can also try resetting your AirPods by opening the lid of the charging case and then pressing and holding the setup button for 15 seconds. The status light will flash amber a few times before it turns white. After that, you can open the case and close it again.

To reset your AirPods, place them in their case and close the lid. Press and hold the button on the back of the charging case for about 15 seconds. After the status light flashes amber a few times, it will turn white and will be ready to reconnect with your device.

Resetting your AirPods can be a great way to fix problems such as when they won't connect, have static, or aren't playing music. The process is easy and only takes a few minutes. All you need is a charged case, an iPhone or iPad that's running the latest version of iOS, and a power source. Then, just follow the steps to reset your AirPods and get them back up and running.

There are many different reasons why your AirPods may not be connecting to your iPhone or iPad. The most common reason is that they are paired with another device. To resolve this issue, you can either unpair your AirPods from any other paired devices or perform a hard reset. The latter option will clear all of your AirPods' settings and start them over again, like they are brand new.

When you're done, you can open the Control Center and select your AirPods in the list of audio outputs. Then, you can play music and use your AirPods as normal.

If your AirPods don't connect to your iPhone or iPad even after following these troubleshooting tips, you can contact Apple Support online or in person at an Apple Store. Apple support representatives can answer questions about your AirPods, help you set them up again, and more. To get support, visit the Contact Apple page on the Apple website.
