In 2016, Apple brought in some daring changes  to its products and one of them is the removal of the standard 3.5mm headphone jack on the latest iPhone models, something we have grown accustomed to since the day one. Instead, Apple introduced its new Bluetooth earbuds that basically resemble previously earbuds only without wires, which raises concerns that users will lose or misplace their AirPods.


In December 2016, AirPods finally went on sale in Apple Store or a large number of retail stores across the globe. Apple’s new wireless headphone caused a flurry of excitement on its first day that some Apple Store received mid-day shipments of new AirPods supply after selling out on opening day.

AirPods are finally here, but many users have reported that their AirPods are losing battery life quickly, as much as 30 percent overnight. The reason behind large drops in battery life for the AirPods is that AirPods remain connected to user’s iPhone or other device instead of being powered down when placed in the case, thereby continuing to eat up power from both iPhone and AirPods.

If you are experiencing the issue, we can help you out. In this guide, we will run you through the steps to fix battery issues with your AirPods. Note that the below-mentioned guide may not fix your issues, but it is worth your shot.

Steps to reset your AirPods

The best shot for dealing with the issue is to reset your wireless headphones. Here is how you can do this:

Step one: First and foremost, you are supposed to press and hold the setup button for at least 15 seconds until you see the LED indicator turn white. It will then flash amber a few times and flash white again

Step two: Once you  are done, AirPods will forget they are paired to your iPhone or other device. This means that you need to re-connect your AirPods to all your devices.

If the problem still persists, you can try draining both the case and AirPods and re-charge all of them.
