Step 1: Check Compatibility

Before we begin, make sure your Airpods are compatible with your iPhone. Airpods work seamlessly with iPhones running iOS 10 or later versions. If you have an older iPhone model, consider updating your software to ensure compatibility.

Step 2: Open the Airpods Case

To initiate the connection process, open the lid of your Airpods case. This will automatically put them in pairing mode.

Step 3: Unlock Your iPhone

Unlock your iPhone by entering your passcode or using Touch ID/Face ID.

Step 4: Access Control Center

To connect your Airpods, swipe down from the top-right corner of the screen (for iPhones without a home button) or swipe up from the bottom of the screen (for iPhones with a home button) to access the Control Center.

Step 5: Tap on Bluetooth Icon

In the Control Center, locate and tap on the Bluetooth icon. This will open the Bluetooth settings menu on your iPhone.

Step 6: Select Your Airpods

In the list of available devices in the Bluetooth settings menu, you should see your Airpods listed. Tap on their name to connect them to your iPhone.


  • If you have multiple Airpods connected to your Apple ID, ensure that the correct ones are selected.
  • If your Airpods are not appearing in the list, make sure they are properly charged and in close proximity to your iPhone. You can also try closing and reopening the Airpods case to restart the pairing process.

Step 7: Confirm Connection

Once you’ve tapped on your Airpods’ name, a confirmation prompt will appear on your iPhone screen. Tap “Connect” to establish the connection between your Airpods and iPhone.

Step 8: Enjoy Your Airpods!

That’s it! Your Airpods are now connected to your iPhone. You can start enjoying wireless audio and all the features that come with it.
