How To Connect Airpods To Mac

Airpods have come in as a great accessory to MacBook devices since its inception with the numerous functionalities that come with it.

You can seamlessly connect your AirPods to your Macbook without breaking any sweat if you follow the steps that will be outlined below.

Connect AirPods with your Mac

It is possible to connect your AirPods directly to your Mac if they are not already connected to your iPhone.

  • Open the cover of the case while having the AirPods in the case.
  • Until the status light glows white, press and hold either the setup button on the back of the case or the noise control button (on AirPods Max only).
  • Click Bluetooth under System Preferences in the Apple menu on your Mac.
  • Make sure that Bluetooth is on.
  • Click AirPods from the list of devices.
    Select Enable to enable Siri to work with your AirPods when you say “Hey Siri,” if your AirPods are compatible.

Perform one of the these when asked if you wish to improve Siri and Dictation:

Exchange audio files: To give Apple permission to record the audio of your interactions with Siri and dictation on this Mac, choose Share Audio Recordings. Apple may examine a clip of the audio that is being stored.

Don’t distribute audio files: Select “Not Now.”

In the Analytics & Improvements area of your privacy options, you can choose to enable or disable sharing of audio recordings if you subsequently change your mind.

You can configure your AirPods to connect automatically or just when they were last linked to your Mac.

How to connect your AirPods to your Mac if you already use them on your iPhone

To connect your AirPods to your iPhone, simply open the AirPods’ case.

 In the menu bar at the top of your Mac screen, select the Volume icon. It appears to be a speaker.

 Pick your AirPods from the menu’s “Output Device” option.

How To Switch devices automatically

Your Mac with macOS Big Sur, iPhone with iOS 14, and iPad with iPadOS 14 or later can all shift instantly to connect with your airpod. You must use two-factor authentication and sign in to all of your devices using the same Apple ID.

Open Bluetooth settings on your Mac while wearing your AirPods to turn off automatic switching for your Mac. In the list of devices, select your AirPods by clicking the Options button. Press “Connect”
