AirPods won’t connect after resetting them? 10 ways to fix

When you reset your Apple AirPods to factory settings, you need to pair them with your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch before you can use them again. But what if your AirPods won’t connect?

In this troubleshooting guide, you’ll find out why your AirPods, AirPods Pro, or AirPods Max won’t reconnect after a factory reset, and what you can do to fix the problem.

1. Lock and unlock your iPhone

After resetting your AirPods, you must open your AirPods Charging Case or take your AirPods Max out of its Smart Case, hold it next to your iPhone or iPad, and follow the automatic onscreen instructions to pair it again.

If the AirPods setup animation doesn’t appear, follow these steps to make it appear.

  1. press the Side/Superior on your iPhone or iPad to lock the device.
  2. Close your AirPods charging case or place your AirPods Max in its Smart Case.
  3. Unlock your iPhone or iPad.
  4. Open the AirPods Charging Case or take AirPods Max out of its Smart Case and hold it near your iOS or iPadOS device.
  5. Wait until the AirPods setup animation appears. If so, tap Connect > Announce calls and notifications (or customize to configure your AirPods preferences) > Done.

2. Forget the old AirPods connection

If you didn’t unpair your AirPods before resetting them, the old Bluetooth pairing could be interfering and preventing them from reconnecting. Delete it from your iPhone or iPad and see if that makes a difference.

  1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad and tap Bluetooth.
  2. Click the Information icon next to the AirPods.
  3. Faucet Forget this device to delete the AirPods from the Bluetooth device list.

3. Manually pair the Bluetooth audio device

If the AirPods setup animation still fails, you need to manually pair the AirPods with your iPhone or iPad. Do that:

  1. Go to Settings > Bluetooth.
  2. Open the AirPods charging case. Then, press and hold the Setting up button on the back of the case. If you’re pairing your AirPods Max, take it out of the case and press and hold the Noise control button.
  3. Release the Setting up or Noise control button when the status light flashes white.
  4. Tap your AirPods if they appear under the other devices list.
  5. Faucet Connect to the iPhone/iPads.
  6. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the pairing process.

4. Charge your AirPods

Even if you reset your AirPods, a common reason your wireless headphones or earphones won’t go into pairing mode is a low battery.

If the status light on your AirPods charging case or AirPods Max is amber or doesn’t turn on, it means you have low or no battery life.

Plug your AirPods or AirPods Max charging case into a charging source for at least 15 minutes before trying again. Learn how to fix your AirPods if they refuse to charge.

5. Disable and enable Bluetooth on iPhone

AirPods connect via Bluetooth. If the problem persists, disable and enable Bluetooth on your iPhone or iPad to fix minor glitches with the device’s Bluetooth module.

Don’t use the Bluetooth switch in Control Center. Instead, go to Settings > Bluetooth and turn off the switch next to Bluetooth. Wait 10 seconds and turn it on again.

6. Restart your AirPods

If the problem persists, try restarting your AirPods. To do this, just place them in the charging case and close the lid for 10-30 seconds. If you’re using an AirPods Max, press and hold the Noise control until the status light flashes amber.

7. Restart your iPhone

Restart your iPhone or iPad to eliminate further connection issues preventing you from reconnecting your AirPods after a factory reset. Do that:

  1. Open the Settings apps and tap General > Shutdown.
  2. Scroll the Power right icon.
  3. Wait 30 seconds and hold the Side button until you see the Apple logo.

8. Install the latest version of iOS

Persistent bugs with the iPhone or iPad system software are another reason that prevents you from pairing your AirPods. Installing the latest iOS or iPadOS updates is the best way to deal with it.

  1. Go to Settings > General > Software update.
  2. Wait until your iOS device connects to Apple servers.
  3. Faucet Download and install to install available updates.

9. Reset the network settings on your iPhone

Reset the network configuration on your iPhone or iPad to fix AirPods connectivity issues that result from a broken Bluetooth settings configuration. The reset procedure is relatively simple and does not erase data except for previously connected Wi-Fi networks and passwords.

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Go to General > Transfer or Reset iphone > Restore.
  3. Faucet Restore Network settings.
  4. Enter your device passcode.
  5. Faucet Restore to confirm.

10. Pair your AirPods with an Apple Watch or Mac

Try pairing your AirPods with your Apple Watch or Mac. If that works, the connection should sync via iCloud with other Apple devices with the same Apple ID and allow you to use them on your iPhone or iPad.

Pair AirPods with an Apple Watch

  1. press the Digital crown and tap Settings.
  2. Scroll down and tap Bluetooth.
  3. Open the AirPods case or take the AirPods Max out of the case.
  4. hold the Setting up or Noise control until the status light flashes white.
  5. Faucet AirPods in the watchOS Bluetooth list.

Pair AirPods with a Mac

  1. Open the Apple menu and select System Preferences/Settings.
  2. Select the Bluetooth category.
  3. Open the AirPods case or take the AirPods Max out of the case.
  4. hold the Setting up or Noise control until the status light flashes white.
  5. Select the Connect button next to AirPods in the macOS Bluetooth list to connect.

Talk to Apple about repairs or replacements

If none of the above solutions help, the pairing issue is likely due to a hardware defect with your AirPods, AirPods Pro, or AirPods Max. Schedule a visit to an Apple Store or contact Apple Support for repairs. If your AirPods are new and under warranty, you may be eligible for a replacement.
