As a result, you’re having trouble figuring out how to link your AirPods to your computer. Things do happen! It’s okay since the issue can be resolved quickly enough.
There is a useful website from Apple themselves that may take you on the appropriate route for every model of computer, in addition to the basic overview we’ve provided.
First things first: Depending on the sort of computer you use, this procedure may seem different. Let’s start with a Mac.
Make sure the operating system on your Mac is up to date first. To do so, click “About this Mac” after clicking the Apple emblem in the upper-left corner of your desktop. You may click “Software Update” on the resulting screen that will appear.
Apple states that AirPods Pro requires macOS Catalina 10.15.1 or later, while normal, 2nd generation AirPods require macOS Mojave 10.14.4 or later.
Follow these easy steps to connect your AirPods after making sure your Mac is running the most recent software.

If you still can’t locate it, it’s the desktop gear-shaped icon. Spotlight (the magnifying glass in the upper right-hand corner of your desktop) can also be used to look up System Preferences.
2. Select Bluetooth.
I’m using a Mac, so this is what I’m referring to. You need to search for this symbol.
3. Place the two AirPods inside the case and lift the lid.
4. Keep holding the AirPod case’s button.
The light should begin to flicker white. After that, you may release your grip on the button.
5. Click “Connect Presto” once your AirPods appear on your devices. That ought to do it. Restart the procedure after making sure Bluetooth is switched on twice if you still cannot see your AirPods.
What happens if you don’t have a Mac? Well, the procedure ought to be almost the same. very almost The way you access the Bluetooth page is the only thing that will really change. Here are some possible routes you may take to get there:
- Open Settings from your Start menu on a PC.
- When it reads “Add Bluetooth or another device,” choose devices, go to Bluetooth and other devices, and then click the plus symbol.
- When your AirPods appear on the screen, hold down the button while opening the case lid of your AirPods.
- After the headphones have connected, click “Done.”
Particularly with desktop computers, not all PCs have Bluetooth capabilities. However, it’s quite possible that your computer does support Bluetooth if you have a laptop.
There you go, people. Enjoy the smooth pairing of your PC and AirPods in this brave new world.
