How to Pair Two Different AirPods to Your iPhone

Put both AirPods in the charging case with the lid open. Put your new AirPod in the charging case along with the old one. Don't close the lid. At this point, you should notice that the status light on the case is flashing amber. This means that the case recognizes a pairing or connectivity issue between your AirPods.

If you have ever lost one of your AirPods or the charging case, you may have found yourself in a situation where you need to pair a new AirPod with your iPhone. In this post, we will guide you through the steps on how to pair two different AirPods to your iPhone.

First, make sure both AirPods and the charging case are together. Then, go to your iPhone’s Bluetooth connection settings and find your AirPods. Click on “Forget this device” to remove the AirPods from your iPhone’s memory.

Next, go to the back of the AirPod and hold down the back button. This step may not be necessary if your AirPods are already pre-connected or if you are using an Android phone. Then, click on “Connect” and continue to hold down the back button. You will see a panel where you can set up your AirPods.

Set up your AirPods as you normally would and you’re done! Your new AirPod or replacement case should now be connected to your iPhone.

If you encounter any issues, you can contact Apple for assistance or update your iPhone if there is an update available as it may fix the problem.
