If you’re new to Apple’s AirPods, you might be wondering how to set them up and use them with your iPhone. In this post, we’ll be going over the basics of how to do just that, so you can start enjoying your music, podcasts, and phone calls with ease.
First things first, before touching your AirPods, you need to make sure Bluetooth is turned on on your iPhone. To do this, simply swipe up on your iPhone to get control center and turn on Bluetooth. If you’re not sure whether Bluetooth is on or off, the Bluetooth symbol will display at the top next to the battery indicator.
Now onto the setup or pairing process. It’s really quite easy. Simply open the AirPod case close to the iPhone, and the pairing AirPod screen will pop up. Just press connect on the screen, and it may prompt you to hold the button on the back of the case. Then it will connect. Your AirPods are now paired with not only your iPhone but any other Apple devices you have that share the same iCloud account.
Whenever you want to use your AirPods, just take them out of the case and put them in your ears. A tone will sound to let you know they’re online and ready to use. Now you can start playing your music, podcast, or make that phone call.
One of the most common questions people have about AirPods is how to control them and change the volume. There are many different ways to do this, but in this section, we’ll go over the basic ones that are set up by default. To change the volume or play the next track, you can just double-tap either AirPod. You can also ask Siri to play the next track, turn up the volume, or make a call. AirPods can be completely controlled with your voice, but personally, I don’t find that the best way to control them, especially if you’re in a noisy environment.
You can, of course, control them using the volume and media controls on your iPhone, but that’s not super handy. In the next two videos, we’ll be going over some better ways to control AirPods, so don’t worry too much about that for now.
In conclusion, setting up and using your Apple Ear Buds with your iPhone is a piece of cake. We hope you found this guide useful, and if you want to learn more, be sure to check out the other two parts of the series below.
