It may seem simple, but resetting your AirPods may fix minor software bugs such as connectivity issues or a quickly draining battery. Like resetting an iPhone, resetting your AirPods gives them a "fresh start."

How Do I Reset My AirPods?

  1. Press and hold the setup button on the back of your Charging Case.
  2. Release the setup button when status light flashes amber a few times, then flashes white.
  3. Your AirPods have been reset.
  4. Connect your AirPods to your device, just like you did when you set them up the first time.

Go to your setting –> bluetooth –> airpods (select the blue icon) –> forget device and confirm to forget. Then have your airpods in the case, have the case open, hold it until it flashed white. And connect to your phone how you did the first time.
