Reset Airpods Pro to Reconnect to Your Phone

Start by putting your Airpods Pro in the charging case and closing the lid for 30 seconds. Then you will open the case and open Settings on your smartphone or device. O

pen the settings, turn Bluetooth on and scan for your Airpods Pro.

Once the Airpods Pro appears on your device, select “more info” next to the Airpods Pro, and select forget device from your phone or device.

While the case lid remains open, press the setup button and hold it for 15 seconds.

You will find this button on the back side of the charging case. When the light flashes amber, and then flashes white, reconnect your Airpods Pro to your smartphone.

This will usually work, but if it does not, it might be because your case or Airpods' charging ports are dirty.

How to Clean Airpods Pro and Airpods Charging Case

You will need to take a close look at the charging ports. They often collect dust and debris after being used consistently for a prolonged period. If the charging ports are dirty, it can hinder charging, and your Airpods will run out of battery, and you will be unable to reset them.

Here's how to clean your AirPods Pro:

Using a very small needle, gently scrape the bottom of the Airpods (where it connects to the case charging ports). When you see the debris and dirt have loosened, you can either blow into the Airpods charging ports or use a small cotton bud to scrape it out.

Similarly, you can repeat the process on your charging case and ensure that the ports are clean. If it still does not work, it is best to take it to a professional to clean them out properly.

If it still does not work, try to recharge the charging case.

It might also help to check the case's charging port as well, as it can pick up dirt and debris too.

You can also use a cleaning kit, like this:

It is a fairly simple process to reset your Airpods Pro, and once you understand how to do it, you shouldn't continue having problems with it.

If you repeatedly face connectivity or charging issues, get them cleaned out! Airpods are always near your face, and besides dirt and dust, they can gather dead skin. To prevent charging issues, it's smart to clean them regularly.

However, if you face connectivity issues even after getting them cleaned, you might have to replace the Airpods or the charging case. Hopefully, it does not have to come to that!

To conclude, we hope that this quick guide helped you resolve any issues you might be facing with your Airpods Pro.
