How to set up your AirPods Pro 2nd generation

If you already have AirPods or AirPods Pro and are thinking about getting rid of them, this is a good time to remove them from your Bluetooth devices.

Tap on Settings > Bluetooth and then locate your AirPods or AirPods Pro. Tap the blue I next to their name, and then tap Forget this device.

OK, once that’s done you can start setting it up.

On iPhone, click Forget This Device.

The process starts with freeing up some space (because when you need to change earbuds, you don’t want them falling in the middle of the desk clutter).

The good thing is that it doesn’t take long to set up!

Likewise: Here’s how to protect your new AirPods Pro from wear and tear

Quickly charge the AirPods Pro (five or 10 minutes is enough) and it’s time to take them out of the case.

The first thing I like to do is that they fit comfortably in my ears. Apple offers a range of ear tips, and it’s a good idea to find ones that work for you (you can test fit later).

Replacing the earbuds means pulling the old ones off (they need a little tugging) and then snapping the replacements in (make sure they snap in place and test to make sure they’re secure).

OK. Now it’s time to pair them with the iPhone. Bring them close to the iPhone and open the case.
As simple as that.

With the AirPods Pro paired, let’s test the earbud fitting. Go to Settings > Bluetooth and then locate your AirPods Pro, tap on the blue I next to their name, and then tap Eartip Fit Test.

And there you are.

You are done!
