How to Connect AirPods to iPhone

In this article, we’ll look at how to pair AirPods to your iPhone, as well as how to fix common AirPods connectivity issues if they’re not pairing properly.

It is really simple to connect your AirPods to an iPhone. However, there are times when the earphones simply do not connect.

AirPods are becoming increasingly popular. When it comes to Buds in Nigeria, Oriamo is without a doubt the most popular brand. Here’s how to connect AirPods to your iPhone if you’ve recently purchased a new pair of AirPods or if you’ve recently reset your AirPods.

The Advantages of Owning a Pair of AirPods

The introduction of AirPods has completely transformed our smartphone usage. They provide a far superior experience than boring wire earphones, and here are some of the 2 top reasons why you should own a pair:

  • You are not required to pull out your phone.

With the AirPods in your ears, you’re only a tap away from Siri, which means you can get more done even if your phone is in your pocket. You don’t need to pull out your phone every time you want to check the weather, make a call, or even lower the volume.

  • iCloud with AirPods

Pairing your AirPods with one Apple device grants you access to all of your other Apple devices. So, if you own anything that uses iCloud, from a device to a watch, an iPad, or a MacBook, you don’t have to worry about constantly trying to connect.

  • Long-lasting battery

The battery life on AirPods is adequate, especially considering that the AirPod case also functions as a charger and can hold a charge for up to 24 hours. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing because you’ll probably listen to music while driving to work or cleaning your house, with the exception of long-distance travel, which may take longer than the promised 5-hour charge time. To your advantage, charging the AirPods from the case only takes about fifteen minutes.

How to Connect AirPods to iPhone

  • Go to the Settings app, then Bluetooth, and turn it on. Then return to the home screen.
  • Check that your AirPods are in their charging case. Then, open the charging case and hold it close your iOS device.
  • The iPhone will now display a setup animation. Connect should be selected.
  • If you have Hey Siri enabled on your iPhone, Hey Siri will be enabled on your AirPods automatically. However, if you have not yet configured it, you will be prompted to do so.
  • Finally, tap Done to complete the process.
