How to Reconnect AirPods to iPhone
Check AirPods Battery Level
Before attempting to reconnect your AirPods to your iPhone, it’s important to ensure that they have enough battery life. If your AirPods are out of battery, they won’t be able to connect to your iPhone, and you’ll need to charge them first.
To check the battery level of your AirPods, simply open the AirPods case with the AirPods inside and hold it near your iPhone. A battery status pop-up should appear on your iPhone screen, showing you the current battery level of your AirPods as well as the charging case.
If the battery level is low, you’ll need to charge your AirPods before attempting to reconnect them to your iPhone. To charge your AirPods, simply place them back in the charging case and connect the case to a power source using the Lightning cable that came with your AirPods. Once your AirPods are fully charged, you can proceed to reconnect them to your iPhone.
Turn On Bluetooth on iPhone
In order to connect your AirPods to your iPhone, you’ll need to make sure that Bluetooth is turned on. Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows your devices to communicate with each other, and it’s what enables your iPhone to connect to your AirPods.
To turn on Bluetooth on your iPhone, go to Settings > Bluetooth. If the toggle next to Bluetooth is off, tap it to turn it on. The toggle should turn green, indicating that Bluetooth is now on.
If Bluetooth was already on, leave it on and proceed to the next step. If you’re having trouble turning Bluetooth on, try restarting your iPhone and attempting to turn it on again. Once Bluetooth is on, you’re ready to connect your AirPods to your iPhone.
Open AirPods Case
To connect your AirPods to your iPhone, you’ll need to take them out of the charging case. The charging case is what keeps your AirPods charged and ready to use, so it’s important to make sure it’s charged and that your AirPods are properly seated in the case.
To open the AirPods case, simply flip open the lid. If your AirPods are properly seated in the case, the LED light on the front of the case should show the charging status of your AirPods. If the LED light is green, your AirPods are fully charged. If it’s amber, your AirPods are charging.
If your AirPods aren’t in the case, or if they’re not properly seated, you won’t be able to connect them to your iPhone. Make sure your AirPods are properly seated in the case, and that the lid is securely closed. Once you’ve confirmed that your AirPods are properly seated in the case, you’re ready to connect them to your iPhone.

Now that you’ve ensured that your AirPods have enough battery life, Bluetooth is turned on, and your AirPods are properly seated in the charging case, you’re ready to connect them to your iPhone.
