Apple products are great until they stop working, and you have to troubleshoot. Whether you are struggling with an apple watch data plan or a broken set of airpods, this can be a nuisance.
The good news is that if your problem is a set of airpods or airpods pro not charging, they are easy to troubleshoot. Below, we will walk you through the solutions, no matter if you are struggling with the left or right AirPod not charging, both AirPods not charging, or the case not charging.
AirPods Not Charging In The Case
This is one of the most common problems affecting apple airpods, and almost every user will experience it at some point. Here is how to fix it.
When you put your AirPods into their case, you should feel a magnetic snap as they connect into place. If your AirPods are not connecting properly, or if the AirPods case will not close, then you have found your problem.
If your AirPods are slotting into place normally, it is time to check the battery and charging status with your iPhone. Put both AirPods into the case and close the lid, then open it again and hold the case next to your iPhone. The charging status should be displayed on your iPhone screen. If the battery charge of the case is less than 10%, then it will not have sufficient power to charge anything, and you will need to plug it in.
If your AirPods are at all dirty, the charging circuit may be blocked with grime. This is one of the most common AirPods charging problems, and it is easy to fix. All you have to do is clean them, and they should work fine!
AirPod Case Not Charging
If your case itself is not charging when you plug it into a power source, then it will not be able to pass any charge on to the airpods.
To start with, put both AirPods into the case and close the lid, then open it again and hold the case next to your iPhone. The charging status should be displayed on your iPhone screen. If your case is charging, you will see a lightning bolt symbol beneath the picture of the case. If there is no lightning bolt, you will need to troubleshoot the case.
A common problem is a broken charging cable. To troubleshoot it, plug the cable into a different device, such as your iPhone. If the lightning bolt appears over the battery icon, then it is working.
If you use a wireless charging base, check which airpods you are using. 2nd Generation AirPods and AirPods Pro are the only versions that support wireless charging. Put your AirPods in the case and set the case on the charging mat, with the status light easily visible. The status light will flash while the case is charging.
If your charging case has dirt in the charging port, it could block your case from charging. Clean the port carefully, and it should start to work again.
If the above options do not work, you may need to replace your airpods. Hopefully, though, one of the options above should get everything in good working order again
