You’ve come to grips with the fact that Apple removed the standard headphone jack on recent iPhone models and bought the company’s branded $159 wireless AirPods. Or maybe you received these Bluetooth headphones as a holiday present. 

Either way, you’ll want to make the most out of these small earbuds, which I frequently use and like a lot. Here are nine things to know about using and customizing your AirPods.

Pair with your iPhone

Pairing AirPods with another iPhone.

You must “pair” or connect AirPods with the device you want to use them with, very likely an iPhone, just as you must do with any Bluetooth speaker. Fortunately, Apple made the process fast and easy. Here’s how.

Open the lid to the dental-floss shaped case where you charge and store these earbuds. An animation appears a moment later on the iPhone screen. Tap connect. And simple as that, you’ve paired `em.

What’s more, not only is your iPhone now connected to AirPods, but so are Macs, iPads and Apple Watches that share the same iCloud account, making it a breeze to switch among devices. Just select AirPods from the Bluetooth list on the device you want to listen to.

Opening the case lid is also how you can connect AirPods to another iPhone. Only this time a notice on the phone screen carries a “Not Your AirPods” heading. That doesn’t stop you. Press and hold the button on the back of the case. Upon doing so, a status light blinks white. Release the button, and you’re connected to this other phone.
