One of the headphones that have had a huge boom since they hit the market in 2016 are the AirPods. These wireless headphones were designed by the Apple company and connect with any compatible device without any type of cable, as it works through Bluetooth connection.
Their autonomy and design make them what can be categorized as the perfect headphones; however, there is a small detail regarding the AirPods: “battery charging”, a detail that is quite hidden in the iOS and Androidmenu options.
Not that this is a big problem, but we cannot deny that it is annoying to leave the house with the headphones and that in less than a minute the notification starts to sound that the battery is at 10%.
How to know the battery charge of the AirPods in IOS
For iPhone, iPad or any Apple device, there are 2 options to know the battery:
Option 1. Just locate the battery widget found on the home screen. Through the widget you will be able to observe the battery level of your iPhone AirPods, it is also a valid option for Apple Watch.
In case you do not know how to locate the widget: just slide your finger to the left from the home screen of your iPhone. In that option you will see different windows, including one that shows the charge of your AirPods and Smart Case.
Option 2. The second option is to bring the charging case close to the iPhone, but with the AirPods inside the case itself. After a few seconds a window will pop up on your iPhone revealing the AirPods charging.
Both methods are quite simple, now that you know them don’t forget to use them, check the battery of your AirPods and don’t be left without listening to your favorite music, listen to your voice memos and answer calls while driving.
