How to connect your AirPods 3 to your iPhone and other non-Apple devices

One reason why AirPods are so popular is their quick and smooth connection with iPhone and other Apple devices. If you just received your new AirPods 3, follow the steps below to set them up.

How to connect AirPods 3 with Apple devices

Open the charging case with two AirPods in, hold it close to your iPhone which is unlocked. After a second or two, a setup will appear, tap Connect. To connect AirPods 3 with iPad and Mac, open Control Center on the top-right of the screen, tap the AirPlay button, and then choose AirPods. Before connection, you may be asked to set up “Hey Siri”, if you haven’t done that yet.

It is worth mentioning that the Bluetooth should be turned on, and your iPhone, iPad or Mac’s software must be up-to-date, or else the connection will fail. To reconnect your AirPods 3, put them in the charging case with the lid closed. Press and hold the setup button on the charging case for up to 10 seconds until the status light flashes white, which means that your AirPods are ready to connect.

How to connect AirPods 3 with non-Apple devices

You can also connect your AirPods 3 with any non-Apple devices. Some featured will be limited, such as Siri, but you can use them as normal Bluetooth earbuds. To start with, go to Settings, and turn Bluetooth on. Keep your AirPods in the charging case with the lid open. Press and hold the setup button on the back of the case until you see the status light flash white. Then you’ll see AirPods appear on your Bluetooth device, select them.

How to enable and disable automatic switching

Your AirPods 3 also support automatic switching between your Mac with macOS Big Sur, iPhone with iOS 14, and iPad with iPadOS 14 or later, as long as you are signed in with the same Apple ID. It’s very convenient because when you have a call on your iPhone while you’re listening to music on your Mac, your AirPods will automatically switch to the phone.

Once you don’t want this feature, open Bluetooth connections on either your iPhone, iPad or Mac, and then choose and then choose When Last Connected to This iPhone/iPad/Mac.
