  • I can't help but share my happy news with you: I got myself a pair of wireless earbuds!

  • No more tangled cords and hours wasted on untangling them!

  • Yay!

  • But this week, I'm going on a long flight.

  • So, the question is, "Will my AirPods work on the plane?"

  • After googling the answer, I was happy to find out that the answer is a solid "Yes"!

  • The FAA (which stands for the Federal Aviation Administration) won't mind if you switch on

  • your wireless earbuds onboard the airliner.

  • Plus, your neighbor is bound to thank you for not tangling your earphone cord around

  • their appendages, belongings, and armrests.

  • At the same time, one moment used to confuse to me: when a plane takes off, all passengers

  • are asked to put their phones into Airplane Mode.

  • But then, how are my AirPods going to work?

  • Well, it turns out that during the flight, it's Ok if passengers use short-range Bluetooth

  • accessories, for example, wireless keyboards AND AirPods!

  • (However, it doesn't mean that you can (or should, for that matter) switch off the Airplane

  • Mode after the plane has climbed to cruising altitude.)

  • So, first, right before take-off, you should go to "Settings" on your smartphone and choose

  • the Airplane Mode.

  • Then, you re-enable Bluetooth by choosing "On" in your Bluetooth settings.

  • What do you know!

  • You aren't breaking any regulations by ignoring the "Airplane Mode" rule, and, at the same

  • time, you can listen to your favorite songs or watch movies to pass the hours.

  • Even better, you don't have to waste precious flight time (just a bit of sarcasm here) AND

  • your nerves on untwisting the knots of the earbud cord.

  • Sound off in the comments below if you know how irritating that is!

  • Anyway, discovering this information made me think: what if there’s something else

  • I don't know about my new gadget?

  • Well, I started researching, and look how much useful stuff about AirPods I've found!

  • - If your AirPods are running low on battery, you can use just one earbud at a time!

  • Keep one of them in the charging case, and listen to music or whatnot through the other.

  • Itll extend the battery life by almost two times.

  • Besides, AirPods are designed in such a clever way that when you're using one earbud, you

  • still hear both the left and the right sides of the stereo audio file!

  • But there’s one condition: one of the earbuds has to be either in the case or in your friend’s

  • ear!

  • Usually, stereo recordings have right and left-channel audio tracks.

  • And if you're wearing just one earbud, you can miss something that's going on in the

  • other one, for example, a part of a dialogue or some sound effect!

  • But AirPods automatically convert stereo to mono when you use just one earbud, and you

  • miss nothing.

  • - Another problem I had when I got my AirPods was checking who was calling me.

  • First, I had to nervously fumble for my phone in my bag or pocket, grab it, pull it out,

  • and only after all this hassle, I could finally make the decision whether I wanted to answer

  • or not.

  • Guess I just didn't do my research well.

  • It turns out that you can find out who's calling you without having to look at the screen of

  • your phone!

  • Choose "Phone" in your Settings, and tap "Announce Calls."

  • After that, pick the option that suits you the most.

  • For example, I opted for "Headphones Only," but you might find it more convenient if your

  • smartphone always informs you about the caller's identity.

  • - Unfortunately, AirPods aren't water-resistant.

  • So don’t shower with them.

  • Just sayin’.

  • What's more, Apple strongly recommends keeping the earbuds away from water.

  • On the other hand, you can use them during your workouts.

  • So, I believe that means they can withstand some sweating, but shouldn't be dropped in

  • water.

  • If your earbuds have survived a washing machine cycle or an unplanned swim in a bath, count

  • yourself lucky!

  • - If your AirPods keep disconnecting from your phone, there might be several reasons

  • for this problem.

  • Before everything else, check their battery.

  • If they have enough charge, make sure that the Bluetooth on your gadget is working properly.

  • If these attempts haven't been successful, disconnect your AirPods and then connect them

  • again.

  • To do it, just put them inside their case, close the lid, and wait for about 15 seconds.

  • After that, open the lid, press the button on the back of the case, and hold it until

  • the flashing light inside becomes amber and then white - your AirPods are reset.

  • You can also try turning off the Wi-Fi on your phone, un-pairing them from your Apple

  • Watch, or turning off automatic ear detection.

  • But if none of these methods have worked, try cleaning your earbuds!

  • The "disconnection problem" may occur because of the dust and dirt stuck inside.

  • Yep, as simple as that!

  • - You can set up "Find My AirPods" in the "Find My iPhone" application so that you never

  • have to rummage around your place trying to locate them.

  • Plus, by using this feature, you can even find one runaway earbud that’s outside the

  • case!

  • In this case, when you choose "Find My AirPods" in the app, itll show you only one location

  • on the map.

  • You should put the earbud you see in the case and refresh the map.

  • This way, you'll locate the other.

  • Plus, if you know for sure that both of your AirPods are somewhere nearby and connected

  • to Bluetooth, you can play a sound in the application to find them.

  • This sound will last for 2 minutes, getting louder and louder.

  • As soon as you spot the missing earbud, you can tap "Stop Playing."

  • - You can still use your AirPods even if your phone wasn't produced by Apple!

  • Examine the back of the charging case - see that small, flush button?

  • You can use it to pair your earbuds to an Android device without any problems!

  • Just put the earbuds in their case, open the lid, and press the button.

  • Hold it until the LED light starts to pulse white.

  • After that, your Android phone, as well as any other device, is supposed to show AirPods

  • in its Bluetooth-pairing settings.

  • However, keep in mind that when you pair AirPods with non-Apple devices, you won't be able

  • to feel all the magic.

  • For example, music won't stop if you take one AirPod out of your ear.

  • Playback controls won’t work either.

  • Also, you'll have to install a special app to be able to check the level of the AirPods

  • battery.

  • - If you have second-generation AirPods, you can chat with them.

  • Well, not with them, obviously, but with Siri.

  • Activate this option by saying "Hey, Siri" and then ask your virtual assistant whatever

  • you need to know.

  • I'll tell you the truth: I've never been a fan of Siri.

  • But with AirPods, it turned out to be quite convenient!

  • Just remember the main commands: "Turn down the volume."

  • (Or "turn the volume up," for that matter.

  • Or even "make it 25% louder.")

  • "Skip this song."

  • "How is the battery on the AirPods?"

  • "Call –(insert name here)."

  • "Play my Weekend playlist."

  • Or simply - "Play tango."

  • So, you got the idea, right?

  • - You can change the name of your AirPods!

  • Just choose "Bluetooth" in your phone's Settings, find the blue letter "i" with a circle around

  • it near "AirPods," and tap it.

  • You'll see the box saying "name" - that's where you can type any name that fits your

  • earbuds the best.

  • By the way, renaming your AirPods will make it easier for you to find them when you use

  • Bluetooth to pair them with your iPhone, Mac, iPad, and whatnot.

  • - I've already mentioned the AirPodsstatus lights inside the charging case.

  • Understanding what their colors mean can come in handy in different situations.

  • So, if your AirPods are inside the case, and the lid is open, the green light means that

  • your AirPods are fully charged, and amber indicates that less than one full charge remains.

  • If the light is flashing white, theyre ready to get set up with a new device.

  • And if you see flashing amber, your earbuds are pairing right now, or there’s been some

  • error.

  • In this case, you should reset them.

  • If you've taken the earbuds out of their case, and it's empty, the green light unsurprisingly

  • means that the case is fully charged.

  • And if the light is amber, you'll have to feed the case quite soon.

  • Hey, if you learned something new today, then give the video a like and share it with a

  • friend!

  • And here are some other videos I think you'll enjoy.

  • Just click to the left or right, and stay on the Bright Side of life!
