What are AirPods and how do they work
Airpods are wireless headphones that automatically connect with each other and your phone. They instantly become the most comfortable and convenient way to listen to music, podcasts, and audiobooks. And they’re also great for taking calls on your iPhone, too. Just tap the Airpods to your iPhone, and you’ll be connected in seconds.
But they’re best when they’re together. To connect them, just hold the Airpods close to each other and you’ll hear it beep. They’ll start playing music right away. (Read more about getting started.)
And to answer or reject a call, just double-tap one of the Airpods. (Read more about using Airpods.)
Like most things in life that are truly great, Airpods are really simple and incredibly easy to use. Here’s what you need to know.
Know the basics
The Airpods are tiny and lightweight, with a touch-sensitive end that doubles as a button. They connect wirelessly with your iPhone or iPad to play music, answer calls, and hear the things you say. (Read more about AirPods and your Apple devices.)

Tips for using AirPods with your HP laptop
Airpods are an essential accessory for taking hands-free calls and using Siri on your Apple device. So we recommend keeping them close at hand. And if you’re not sure where they are, just double-click the control pod and they’ll give you a sound location. If you put them in a little case, be sure to take the Airpods out before you close it. That way the Airpods are always ready at a moment’s notice.
But what if you lose your Airpods? As long as you’re signed in to iCloud with the same Apple ID that purchased your Airpods, you can easily find them from an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch—even without a network connection. Here’s how:
Find AirPods on a Mac:
• Click on the Spotlight icon in the top-right of your display. In the spotlight search field, type Find My iPhone and then click on Find My iPhone.
• Click on the map and a window will appear with the last known location of your AirPods.
