How To Connect Air pods To Computer

Apple has put light on a statement and said that it believes the future is wireless. This technology is pacing up with the time, and Apple is striving hard to accelerate or speed up the wireless process. One of the commonly used examples of wireless technology is Apple Air pods. These devices are straightforward to use and have broken the traditional wired earplugs, which get entangled or are tough to manage and are a bit uncomfortable. But the Air pods are seamless, and all you have to do is place the air pods in your ear and then play your media on your device in basic functionality. However, another reason for Air Pods’ extreme popularity is its inbuilt in-ear detections feature that automatically detects your Air pods when you’ve placed them in your ear.

Apple’s Air pods are serviced in a small case, which also acts as a charging device with two separate Bluetooth headphones (not attached to any wired cord). The headset case acts as a charger as it charges itself via a lighting port. You will notice it comes with a small pairing button located on the back, which you use to initiate pairing, or you can use to pair to non-Apple devices. So if you want to use an android phone, a laptop, desktop, the air pods can act as regular Bluetooth headsets and are paired the usual way. They also have a unique pairing method specialized for iPhone, which is pretty slick and easy. 

You have to flick open the lid. There are two headphones inside nestled in the case; you will see the small green light (denoting its charging), which allows you to see whether they’re fully charged or not. If you look down inside the casing after removing the air pods, there are small metal contacts. Those contacts come into touch with the headphones’ base and enable each headphone to act as an antenna for the case for the initial pairing and procedures. The average battery span of the air pods is 5-6 hours and once they are dead, put them inside the wireless charging case, and they’ll begin to charge. You have four hours’ worth of charge in each charged case.
