  • Here's how to connect your AirPods to a MacBook.

  • These steps will work for any generation of AirPods.

  • Open your AirPods case like you would when connecting your iPhone.

  • Click the volume icon on your Mac in the menu bar on the top of your screen.

  • Under output device, select AirPods.

  • If this method doesn't work, you need to enable a few different settings.

  • Go into system preferences. Make sure your Mac is logged into the same Apple ID as your iPhone by clicking Apple ID.

  • And checking for your iPhone on the devices column on the bottom left. Then make sure that "hands off" is turned on by clicking general.

  • And clicking the check mark next to "allow hands off between this Mac and your iCloud devices".

  • Finally, if your volume icon isn't in the menu bar click "Sound", then click the check mark next to "Show volume in menu bar".

  • If you're trying to connect your AirPods to a Mac, but don't use them on an iPhone, you can do this by opening your AirPods case with your AirPods still in it.

  • Press and hold the button on the back of the case until the status light starts to flash white.

  • On a generation one AirPods case you can find the light inside the case.

  • On a generation two and AirPod Pros the light is in front of the case.

  • On your Mac open "System preferences"

  • Click "Bluetooth". On the list of Bluetooth devices you'll find your AirPods, double click to connect.

  • If your AirPods still aren't connecting, remove them from the list by right clicking and clicking "Disconnect" and pair them with the Mac again.

  • If nothing else works, reset your AirPods by holding the button on the back of the AirPods for at least 15 seconds.

  • Let go when the light turns amber and try these steps again.
