If you are looking to reset your AirPods 1, AirPods 2, AirPods 3, or AirPods Pro, then do not worry, as we have you covered in this article. Just check the various steps given below for resetting your AirPods at ease:

  • First, make sure your AirPods and their charging case are charged properly.
    • Note that, if you have already tried to reset your AirPods by pressing the back button and you do not see the LED flashing, then it possibly means that the battery is low. So, try to connect them for 20 minutes to make sure they are functioning properly.
  • Now, open the charging case, then press and hold the small button on the back.
    • This little button on the back of your earbuds’ charging case is the key to resetting the AirPods. Simply, press and hold the same button for 15-20 seconds, and the LED light on the case will change from white to orange color.
  • Now, make sure to keep the AirPods case away from the phone you are trying to separate from the earbuds when pressing the button on the back. If it is too close to one another, then they will just take up the same data and you will not be able to unlink them.
  • That’s it, in this way your AirPods are finally reset.

If you want to pair your iPhone or another device to your AirPods then just bring them close together, turn on the Bluetooth once the Airpods are reset, and then sync them to a new iOS device. To do this, just hold the two devices close together and you will be able to connect by opening the AirPods case and pressing the back button for 15 seconds.

In addition, if you have reset your AirPods but they still kept their old name, then you can also easily change it by going to Settings > Bluetooth, then clicking the info (“i”) button next to the AirPods to change their name.
