How to restore AirPods if they are not Сharging?

Obviously, when a headset breaks, it should be taken to a service center. Usually users do this. There is one “but” – charging problems are not always the result of a breakdown. There are a couple of basic diagnostic measures that are easy to do yourself:

  • Make sure that all cables are connected and there are no physical problems on them: abrasions, cracks, serious damage, check the correctness of the connected device;
  • The case for charging and headphones should be positioned correctly. AirPods must fit properly in the case;
  • Try to put the case on for 15 minutes to charge. The case with the headphones inside you need to bring to the iPhone, then you should open the cover. It should maximally bring the device together;
  • After a few seconds, a connection to the headphones appears (if Bluetooth is activated). Lightning should appear next to the AirPods icon.

Such a procedure often helps to solve these problems.


If the positive effect of these actions has not come, it is likely that technical assistance will be required. It is better to contact an Apple-certified center or support service.
