Do you own a pair of AirPods and want to know how much battery life they have left? With the help of your Mac, you can easily check the battery level of your AirPods without having to use your iPhone or iPad. In this tutorial, we will show you step by step how to check your AirPods battery level on your Mac.

Step 1: Connect Your AirPods to Your Mac

The first thing you need to do is connect your AirPods to your Mac. To do this, simply open the lid of your AirPods case and press and hold the button on the back until the LED light starts flashing white. Then, on your Mac, go to the Bluetooth menu in the menu bar and select your AirPods from the list of available devices.

Step 2: Open Bluetooth Preferences

Once your AirPods are connected to your Mac, click on the Apple menu in the top left corner of your screen and select “System Preferences” from the dropdown menu. In System Preferences, click on “Bluetooth” to open the Bluetooth preferences panel.

Step 3: Check Battery Level

In the Bluetooth preferences panel, you will see a list of all devices that are connected or paired with your Mac. Look for your AirPods in this list and you will see a battery icon next to them. The battery icon will show you the current battery level of both your left and right AirPod as well as the battery level of their case.

Note: If you don’t see a battery icon next to your AirPods, make sure they are connected properly and try closing and reopening the lid of their case.

Bonus Tip:

If you want to see the battery level of your AirPods more easily, you can add the battery widget to your Mac’s menu bar. To do this, go back to System Preferences and click on “Dock & Menu Bar”.

Then, in the left sidebar, select “Battery” and check the box that says “Show in menu bar”. Now you will always be able to see your AirPods’ battery level at a glance.


Checking the battery level of your AirPods on your Mac is quick and convenient. By following these simple steps, you can easily keep track of how much charge your AirPods have left and avoid being caught off guard with a dead battery. Whether you’re using them for work or leisure, knowing the battery status of your AirPods is essential for a seamless listening experience.

So next time you’re using your Mac and want to know how much juice is left in your AirPods, just follow these steps and stay connected!
